Rotating field for electroplating
April 19, 2020
I was wondering if I can use a three phase ac source to essentially create a "rotating electric field" (similar to RMF of induction motors), by connecting three phase's of source to three anodes placed in bath and neutral to the object being plated.
This can help create sort of a general purpose electrode for various different shapes of plate-able objects, with controlled parameters.
May also bias the field for selective plating.
Will it work?
Please refer to any similar/same practice in plating if any.
