CFD Arc Simulation of a Switching-off Process in a Model Chamber
Keywords:CFD arc simulation, model chamber, switching-off process
This paper deals with the investigation of the switching arc process in a model chamber by CFD arc simulation. A transient axisymmetric model based on the @Fluent software is used. The applied arc model considers electromagnetic phenomena, radiative transfer, ablation of PTFE parts and pin motion as well. The influence of the boundary conditions for the solution of the current continuity equation is highlighted. The obtained results are validated by measurements on the model chamber .
