How Dynamic Properties of Inverters Influence Electrode Metal Transfer to the Weld Pool, and Change Structural and Phase Composition of Welded Joints Produced via High Alloyed Electrodes


Article Preview

Covered-electrode arc welding has been currently widely-spread in assembly and maintenance technologies, as soon as it is a reliable tool, which helps get safe permanent joints in critical structural systems applied in Arctic. It is of burning importance to further enhance accuracy in methods which assess the impact of dynamic properties of power supply equipment with various forms of energy conversion on a consumable electrode welding stability and quality. Literature review [1–11] confirms that objectives, aimed at improving critical (in terms of extreme work and low temperatures) metal structures reliability, demand innovative approaches, i.e.:
