Further considerations are given to the use of an electromagnetic flux concentrator for arc plasma control in a rotary arc current interrupter. Such flux concentrators have been previously proposed for plasma fusion and other plasma applications. The possible extension of the proposed method for enhancing the interruption of direct currents with a rotary arc interrupter is discussed with the aid of theoretical modeling of the concentrator geometry and with its possible enhancement of ablation from the arc containing cylinders.
