Re: [TCML] Magnetic quenching

It involves the motion of charge carriers thru a magnetic field. Set it up so the current path and field are perpendicular and the field pulls the charge carriers off to the side disrupting the current path and thus quenching the gap more readily than without a field. You can look up the right hand rule and the motion of charged particles in magnetic fields for more info. Basic E&M physics so should be easy to find info. This is useful particularly where the tank current is high and thus the arc is hotter and self quenching takes longer than you would like. If you get even bigger moving to a rotary gap is better. -Jay
