Keywords:surrounding atmosphere, contact material, DC, welding, welding force, AgW60, CuW60, Cu
With the use of contact material simulating test device, experiments are conducted for the contact materials AgW60, CuW60 and Cu and their different pairing under the conditions of DC voltage and current 270VDC/200A and surrounding atmosphere of carbon dioxide and nitrogen. The welding resistance, average welding force and the relationship between welding force and the number of operations during welding were measured and analyzed. Experiments show that the anti-welding ability of the three materials in the symmetric pairing of carbon dioxide and nitrogen is ranked as AgW60>Cu>CuW60. The "intermediate effect" occurs in the anti-welding properties of the asymmetric pairing. The relationship between the number of operations required for each welding and the average average welding force is approximately an inverse proportional function.
