Homogenised model for the electrical current distribution within a submerged arc furnace for silicon production

Abstract:

Silicon is produced in submerged arc furnaces which are heated by electric currents passing through the furnace. It is important to understand the distribution of heating within the furnace in order to accurately model the silicon production process, yet many existing studies neglect aspects of this current flow. In the present paper, we formulate a model which couples the electrical current to thermal, material flow, and chemical processes in the furnace. We then exploit disparate timescales...
