SOME RESULTS OF EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH ON ARTIFICIAL BALL LIGHTNING LOW-ENERGY PLASMOIDS IN A HIGH-VOLTAGE LABORATORY

M.I. Baranov
2013 Electrical Engineering & Electromechanics  
First results of experimental laboratory-scale reproduction of spheroidal low-energy plasmoids of an artificial ball lightning are given. The data obtained indicate a possibility in principle of reliable generation of such plasmoids in the air atmosphere via the discharge circuit of a high-voltage installation comprising a curved arc discharge channel between a graphite electrode and technical water surface. The artificial 0.3m-diameter ball lightning plasmoid lifetime was less than 0.6 s in
