Abstract: This paper deals with the magnetic forces and their influences on the behaviour of low voltage breaking devices. The originality of this study is based on both the chosen approach and the researched features.The approach is based on a structured and detailed study with a bibliographical synthesis of works undertaken on the experimental devices, the switching arcs, and their mathematical models. Few justifications were found on the choice of the numerical methods, the geometries and the boundary conditions. Fu…
