Fluctuation phenomena of plasma jet flow in an innovative long DC arc system with a ring-shaped anode were successfully clarified by a high-speed camera visualization. The long DC arc with long electrode gap distance more than 350 mm has been applied to gas decomposition due to its advantages of long plasma length, resulting in long residence time of treated gas. However, large heat loss at a conventional hemispherical-shaped anode was a critical issue in the long DC arc system. Therefore, the ring-shaped anode was utilized to convert large energy loss at the anode into the plasma jet flow. High-speed camera observation revealed the effect of external magnetic field on the fluctuation phenomena. Plasma jet fluctuates with the frequency of several tens Hz when the magnetic field was applied. These understanding of arc and plasma jet fluctuation enables to improve the capability of long DC arc system.
