Langmuir probe diagnostics of an atmospheric pressure, vortex–stabilized nitrogen plasma jet
Langmuir probe measurements in an atmospheric pressure direct current (dc) plasma jet are reported. Sweeping probes were used. The experiment was carried out using a dc non–transferred arc torch with a rod–type cathode ...
On the physical processes ruling an atmospheric pressure air glow discharge operating in an intermediate current regime
Low-frequency (100 Hz), intermediate-current (50 to 200 mA) glow discharges were experimentally investigated in atmospheric pressure air between blunt copper electrodes. Voltage–current characteristics and images of the ...
Numerical Modelling of a Cutting Arc Torch
(Jan Awrejcewicz. INTECH, 2014-02-14)
Plasma cutting is a process of metal cutting at atmospheric pressure by an arc plasma jet, where a transferred arc is generated between a cathode and a work-piece (the metal to be cut) acting as the anode . Small nozzle ...
On the dynamics of cutting arc plasmas: the role of the power supply ripple
(ADVANCED ELECTROMAGNETICS, 2012-08)
The power sources used in cutting arc torches are usually poorly stabilized and have a large ripple factor. The strong oscillatory components in the voltage and arc current produce in turn, large fluctuations in the plasma ...
On the use of the Prandtl mixing length model in the cutting torch modeling.
The Prandtl mixing length model has been used to take into account the turbulent effects in a 30 A high-energy density cutting torch model. In particular, the model requires the introduction of only one adjustable coefficient ...
