Abstract

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) calculations of electrical arc fault in a closed encapsulation are here compared with experimental data. The scope of the work is to understand the aerodynamic phenomena occurring when an electrical arc appears between two electrodes. The investigation focuses on both fixed and moving arc. The CFD analysis is used to identify the aerodynamic characteristics inside the encapsulation. A dedicated apparatus is designed and built to perform experimental tests.
