  • Three-dimensional magnetic field analysis of novel asymmetric AMF contacts for vacuum interrupters

    An axial magnetic field (AMF) applied to the vacuum arc column in the vacuum tube can make the vacuum arc keeping in diffusion state, even if it is interrupting the short circuit current. In this paper a novel AMF contact with asymmetric structure has been present. In principle, the necessary axial magnetic field would be created by two coils in series behind the static contact plate. The axial magnetic field and eddy field are analyzed based on novel axial magnetic field contact design with finite element method. At zero current, the generation of eddy currents by 31.5kA, 50Hz excitation is also considered. The results of axial magnetic field and eddy field analysis such as distribution of the axial magnetic field are described. It has also studied whether the parameters such as the coil height, the coil thickness and the coil diameter have an effect on the axial magnetic field and to what extent they do.

  • Dielectric strength of triggered vacuum switches with six-gap electrode system

    Switching conditions influence on dielectric strength of internal insulation of high-current triggered vacuum switches with a trapezoidal rod electrode system is investigated. Investigations were carried out for two switching modes. In the first mode electrode erosion occurs mainly in a vapour phase when the electrode's surface remains smooth enough after switching. In the other switching mode, drop phase of electrodes erosion prevailed and considerable electrode surface damage took place. It follows from experimental data statistical processing that breakdown voltage distribution is described satisfactorily with the Weibull distribution law. The influence of gap and electrode material on dielectric strength of triggered vacuum switches is considered.

  • Oxide-Layer Thickness Effect for Surface Roughness Using Low-Pressure Arc

    Low-pressure arc cleaning is a process for removing an oxide layer. Currently, chemical and mechanical means are typically used to remove such layers. However, both methods present difficulties such as a liquid waste, dust, and noise. Regarding the low-pressure arc cleaning, waste comes from one source: the oxide layer. In addition, the cathode spot has very high temperatures that are sufficient to remove the oxide layer. This paper describes the removal of the nanometer-thick oxide layer from a thin metal plate. An oxide layer of 27-157 nm was removed, thereby, obtaining a smooth surface whose respective arithmetical mean height (R<sub>a</sub>) and average length of an outline curve element (R <sub>sm</sub>) are 0.04 and 6.4 mum. In that case, R<sub>a</sub> and R <sub>sm</sub> increased with an increasing oxide-layer thickness at 397-1680 nm. Those results depend on the oxide-layer thickness. Therefore, although the surface is cratered and rough after a cathode-spot treatment on the chemical oxide layer (6.7 nm), a smooth surface is obtainable after the cathode-spot treatment on the thermal oxide layer (27, 66, and 157 nm). Surface roughness depends on the processing time to produce one crater, which depends on the oxide-layer thickness

  • Reactive gas-controlled arc process

    A method to reduce macroparticles, increase the deposition rate, and improve the coating quality in the cathodic vacuum arc deposition process is suggested. This method is based on the creation of emission-active phases on the cathode surface, and changing the melting point of surface layers of the cathode material and its work function. TiN coatings with a surface roughness of about 0.02 /spl mu/m and microhardness H/sub V/ about 4000 were deposited (compared with 0.085 /spl mu/m Ra and 2900 H/sub V/ for the conventional process). The method was successfully employed for the deposition of smooth coatings of AlN, (Ti,Al)N, and other compounds.

  • The vacuum arc discharge in anode material vapour

    Summary form only given, as follows. In our experiments a discharge gas is formed between the thermionic cathode and water-cooled anode. Al, Cu, Ni, Cr, Ti, Ta, Mo, B, C, W are embedded on the anode as a working substance. Using the cylindrical electrode and electromagnetic system there is the possibility for creating transverse electric and magnetic fields. It is shown that the plasma-flow ionization coefficient may reach the value up to 80%. Thus the data presented in this paper (high ionization coefficient, charge-compensated plasma flow) demonstrate the perspective of wide practical utilization of such type of discharge for creation of thin high-adhesive films.
