XXII Symposium
Physics of Switching Arc

September 4 – 8, 2017

Ski Hotel, Nove Mesto na Morave

Main topics:
1. Numerical Modelling and Arc Theory
2. Electric Arcs in LV/MV/HV Switchgear
3. Plasma Diagnostics
4. Plasma Processing of Materials
5. Other Plasma Technologies

Symposium objectives:
Aim of the Symposium is to provide a space for information, knowledge and experience exchange in the interdisciplinary field of the arc plasma physics and technology. Topics of the Symposium range from the basic plasma physics through theoretical modeling to the arc plasma applications in power engineering an other industrial applications. Character of the Symposium organization gives an excellent opportunity for formal presentations and informal discussions, as well as exchange of ideas on recent/future developments in the field.
