In fact the results calculated by Eq ( 1 ) are closed to the results measured in Fig. Such patterns of such puts a strain on cables and connections, wearing out the insulation and loosening wires. If the insulation has been preheated to more than 300C as a result of heat accumulation from arc or Joule heating, the ignition can even occur to produce a flame.

R in Fig. Based on the electrical parameters measured above, the equivalent Joule heating power is summarized in Fig 10, by a simplified equation P a U a. External heating of electrical cables and auto-ignition investigation. Arc fault detection devices are extremely sensitive and designed to sense and respond only to potentially dangerous arcs. Editor: Slavisa Jovanovic, Universite de Lorraine, france. They have long been used in the aviation industry, for example. R were already obtained as shown in Fig. And you have no way of knowing. That is because they are not designed to detect sudden dangerous arcs. Tests on arc fault behavior with three different initial circuit voltages, resistances and arc gaps were conducted, respectively. The temperature increases by T7 and T8 is relatively small attributed to the distance from arc stream. The movement velocity and distance of electrode A from B,.e., the length of electrode gap (or arc gap when discharging) L, was controlled by a programmable stepping motor, which could lead the sliding block move forward or backward precisely according to a screw structure.

For a better observation of the arc with small scale, a high magnification digital camera (TD-208A from Taida Instruments, China) with 30 frames per second and maximum magnification rate 620 was set right above the electrode gap to record the arc shape from top view. Considering the melting point of electrode material Cu is 1356 K, it is not surprising for the metal spatter because that the arc temperature is usually supposed to be far more than 5000. PLoS ONE 12(8 e0182811. T6 was also influenced by the flickering ambient hot gas flow induced by arc stream.
