Abstract

Arc discharge generated by breaking electrical contact is considered as a main source of an undesired electromagnetic (EM) noise. To clarify mechanism of generation of the EM noise, feature extraction of bridge and short-time arc waveforms generated by slowly breaking Ag contact was discussed experimentally. The short-duration time arc before the ignition of the continuous metallic arc discharge was observed. The highest probability density voltage is defined as short-arc sustainable voltage (SASV). The relationship between SASV and duration of short-time arc was quantified experimentally. It is revealed that as the arc voltage of the short-time arc is higher, its duration becomes longer.
