A new design of an all-purpose inverter current source is considered for mechanical processes of arc welding and surfacing of steels and aluminium alloys. The source features the capability of fast and controllable setting of many parameters of the welding process and regulation of any appearance of external static volt-ampere characteristics and dynamic properties, as well as realization of pulsed modes in a wide range.
