Arc faults are phenomena associated to unwanted electric discharge between two or more conductors. Since energy related to an arc may fuse the conducting material, very often an arc is responsible for a fire. This condition is very critical in aerospace environment, where a fire may produce catastrophic effects. For this reason, many efforts have been produced in order to develop a reliable method for arc detection. The main problem in facing this aim is represented by the intermittent and… CONTINUE READING
