Arc Discharge Physics Laboratory

Challenges

Development of low-temperature plasma generators (plasma torches).

Basic Research Activities

Theory of an electric arc burning in complex magnetohydrodynamic conditions. Stability of burning of an electric arc as a circuit element. Similarity criteria in gas discharge plasma. Basic electrophysical and aerodynamical phenomena in an arcdischarge chamber. Near-electrode processes with regard for electrophysical phenomena in gas-discharge plasma, on the surface, and in the solid body. Development of an engineering method for calculating linear-scheme plasma torches based on a criterial generalization of experimental data. Study of plasma-chemical technologies.

Merits of plasma torches:

Possibility of heating all technologically necessary media with arcdischarge chamber pressure of 0.1-1 MPa; long lifetime of electrodes (up to several hundreds of hours), reliability and stability of operation of plasma installations as a whole; possibility of creating technological facilities of arbitrary power, for instance, on a basis of a multi-jet reactor; easy automatization of technological processes, since the electric arc is almost inertia-free; ecological safety and high efficiency of equipment with miniature scales of plasma torches and plasma-chemical reactors.
