Three-phase short-circuit arcs often cause the breakage of covered conductors on distribution lines, and their movement processes have become an important problem in power-distribution systems. This paper presents the studies on the movement simulation of the three-phase short-circuit arcs. Based on the latest electric arc model and the coupling of magnetic field and motion, this paper develops the procedure to simulate the movement processes of the arcs. Simulation results show that the arcs have different movement directions and behaviors, which are in agreement with the experimental phenomena. This paper is very helpful to design an effective device that prevents the arcs from causing the breakage of the conductor and the damage of the insulator.
