For the design and sensitivity setting of dc line earth fault protection of HV dc transmission lines it is necessary to know the properties of a free burning dc arc. On a dc line such an arc is most probably initiated by an atmospheric over-voltage. The most important properties of the arc are the arc voltage and the deionization time.
