Anode and cathode arc roots move in different ways.

Michael A. Greenwood

The motion characteristics of long AC arcs in atmospheric air have been explained by researchers who say that the findings could result in improved safety and stability for power systems. A typical pattern of a long AC arc burning in atmospheric air. Reprinted with permission of Applied Physics Letters. The research team, led by Jinliang He of the State Key Lab of Power System at Tsinghua University in Beijing, noted that, whereas the motion of short arcs, DC arcs and arcs in closed space have received much attention, relatively little was known about the very distinct motion...Read full article
