The use of time-frequency entropy to quantitatively assess the stability of submerged arc welding process considering the distribution features of arc energy is reported in this paper. Time-frequency entropy is employed to calculate and analyze the stationary current signals, non-stationary current and voltage signals in the submerged arc welding process. It is obtained that time-frequency entropy of arc signal can be used as arc stability judgment criteria of submerged arc welding.
