A stable multiphase ac arc was generated by transformers at a commercial electric system. The arc discharge behavior is investigated by high-speed video camera observation synchronized with voltage waveform analysis. The multiphase ac arc-generating system enables one to obtain wide high-temperature region, which is expected to be suitable for powder heat treatment such as in-flight glass production.
