Modeling spots on copper and copper-chromium cathodes of vacuum arcs


Summary form only given. A variety of approaches have been developed in the literature towards modelling of cathode spots in vacuum arcs. These include space-resolved descriptions based on numerical solution of 1D or 2D partial differential equations, both stationary and non-stationary. However, the simplest model, namely, a stationary spot on an infinite… (More)
