Abstract
The shield current distribution in a vacuum arc between CuCr40 contacts was studied by means of three cylindrical shields arrangement. It was found that the total shield current is affected by the arc mode. For a high-voltage oscillation sequence a significant effect on shield current distribution has an anode plasma jet. Then a great increase of the shield current is observed and the ratio of shield current to arc current was even more than 20%.
