Subject: Current Limiting Queries
I've read postings suggesting that an AC arc welder can be used
as a current limiter for a pole transformer. I'm curious about a
couple of things.
How are the welder and pole pig wired together?
Also (and this is a bit off-subject), just how does an arc welder
work? What is the current limiting mechanism, and how is it made
Lastly, can a pole pig be current limited by means other than an arc
welder or series power resistors?
