Influence of technological and electrical parameters of ESS in current-supplying mould

A calculation experiment was conducted which showed that the controllable electrical parameters of the ESS process can be used to regulate the metal pool shape and electrode melting rate. Dependencies between the depth of electrode deepening into the slag pool, average depth of penetration and uniformity of base metal penetration relative to average penetration depth were determined. A method was proposed for calculation of the depth of electrode deepening into the slag pool by the ratio of currents in CSM. Comparative analysis of three types of single-circuit diagrams of the mould connection to the power source was performed, and an optimum diagram for the required criteria of surfacing quality was proposed. 8 Ref., 1 Table, 12 Figures.

Keywords: current-supplying mould, experiment, automation, metal pool, regulation, penetration, bottom plate, electrode, conductivity, diagram of power supply
