Plasma DC Arc

Application ID: 97661

This example investigates the electrical and thermal characteristics of a plasma DC arc created in a point-to-plane configuration. The discharge is assumed to be in local thermodynamic equilibrium. The plasma is considered a conductive fluid medium and is modeled using a magnetohydrodynamics approach. This model shows how to use the Combined Inductive/DC Discharge interface to simulate the plasma generated in a DC arc.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
