Abstract : Liquid-metal contacts based on mercury, sodium-potassium alloys, gallium and other low-melting-point metals are employed for the electrical connection of rotating and stationary parts of direct-current and alternating-current devices. A theoretical and experimental investigation was conducted with respect to direct-current unipolar machines an electrotechnological machine tools. Contact devices of the ring type are employed for the transmission of heavy currents. (Russian translations).
