Title: Arc voltage distribution skewness as an indicator of electrode gap during vacuum arc remelting

Abstract

The electrode gap of a VAR is monitored by determining the skewness of a distribution of gap voltage measurements. A decrease in skewness indicates an increase in gap and may be used to control the gap. 4 figs.
