Control system for an arc furnace

(57)    Abstract

A control system for and method of controlling a vertical position of at least one electrode of an arc furnace, where the arc furnace comprises a furnace transformer having a primary, input side and a secondary, output side which is electrically connected to the at least one electrode, the control system comprising : at least one current -measuring device for measuring a current as drawn by the arc furnace; a voltage-measuring device for measuring a voltage

as applied across the are furnace; and a control unit for dynamically determining a setpoint for the vertical position of the at least one electrode based on the measured values of current and voltage, and providing an actuating output for driving a lifting arrangement to adjust the vertical position of the at least one electrode so aslo follow the dynamically-determined setpoint.
