Abstract – The trigger of an electric arc represents an unacceptable risk to the safety of the aircraft and a blocking point to certify the new high-voltage architectures. These high-voltage networks are required to cover the growing electric energy demand for new developments. Thus, the study of the electric arc phenomenon, its detection and the parameters affecting its behavior is needed to progress along the path to the all-electric aircraft.
