In the operation of a dc arc furnace components of the furnace are monitored to detect unwanted arcs. A first low impedance path is continuously established between the components. When an arc is detected a second conductive path of a predetermined impedance is established between the components, in parallel to the first low impedance path, to extinguish the arc.
