Title: Arc plasma-generating systems and methods thereof

Abstract

The present invention relates to systems for generating an arc fault in an electrical circuit, as well as methods thereof. In particular, the system provides a platform that can produce an arc discharge in a controlled manner, while measuring various parameters to characterize that discharge. Such parameters include voltage measurements, current measurements, optical spectroscopy measurements, electron temperatures, and/or plasma temperatures.
