In this paper the possibility of improving accuracy of maintaining the regime of melting metal by appropriate control of the arc voltages in electric arc furnaces is presented. For this purpose the methodology of the determination of the own and mutual inductances of the three flexible cables, are proposed and analyzed. This methodology based on realization experiments of the three-phase short network, as well as three biphasic short network when in the third phase arc is absent. The proposed methodology was implemented to determine the parameters of current propulsion of electric arc furnace type DSP-100. The determined cabel parameters (resistances and inductances) are used to form the control effect of the automatic control system by moving the electrodes and hence the power of the arcs of each phase.
