    Abstract

    This paper describes a novel technique for interrupting direct currents (D.C.) with an electromagnetically convoluted arc in air at atmospheric pressure. Investigations are reported on the effects of using a separate current for producing the arc convolving electromagnetic field (B-field) to that being interrupted and using a separate R, L, C circuit in parallel with the arc contacts. Experimental results are presented for the time variation of currents flowing through the arc gap, the B-field coil and the parallel R, L, C circuit, along with the voltage across the arc gap.
