Decay Modes of Anode Surface Temperature After Current Zero in Vacuum Arcs-Part I: Experimental Study

Abstract

Anode surface temperature has a significant impact on the interruption capacity of a vacuum circuit breaker. The objective of this paper is to experimentally understand the decay process of anode surface temperature after extinguishing a high-vacuum arc with a large contact gap. The anode surface temperature after current zero was measured by a two-color… (More)
