    THE industrial power application engineer is faced more and more with the problem of resolving the properties of irregular wave shapes of current and voltage. This is due to the ever-increasing use of current-limiting fuses, electronic switching devices, magnetic amplifiers, gaseous discharge tubes, lamps, etc. For the most part, the quantities to be resolved are: the current-time product (¿ idt)...

  • An 8,500-hp gas-turbine-electric locomotive

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):5 - 10

    AFTER almost a decade of development of the gas-turbine-electric locomotive in practical service, this type of motive power has emerged from the experimental stage. One result of its acceptance in heavy through-freight service has been the demand for a unit considerably more powerful than those previously built. This has been designed and is now under construction. It embodies the same basic desig... View full abstract»

    THE SPEED-MERCHANT locomotive is a dual-power high-speed lightweight locomotive. Traction and auxiliary power is supplied either by its diesel engine or from the d-c third-rail source. View full abstract»

  • Some problems and design factors concerning noise in motor-driven home appliances

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):17 - 22

    DURING RECENT YEARS, the ratio of material to labor cost of mass-produced products has been increasing, mainly owing to the more effective use of automatic processes. In turn, this has stimulated efforts toward producing greater output per pound of material in such items as small motors, and toward greater utility per pound in such products as home appliances. This trend, along with the shifting o... View full abstract»

  • A study of the transfer function of contact-modulated amplifiers

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):23 - 28
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1489 KB)

    CONTACT MODULATORS, or ¿choppers,¿ are frequently used in modern circuit design where modulation (or demodulation) at a fixed frequency is required. Their advantages for this service include extremely high ratios of open-circuit to closed-circuit resistance, almost negligible internal noise, and excellent stability and reproducibility. These properties make the contact modulator particularly sui... View full abstract»

  • A synthesis method for multipole control systems

    A method is developed for the systematic synthesis of multipole control systems which is based on the application of certain system constraints. These constraints reduce the degrees of freedom of the system without, however, resulting in an undue restriction on system performance. A system transfer matrix is described which characterizes the system. Through the application of the constraints it be... View full abstract»

  • Design and calculation of induction-heating coils

    THROUGH the years the author has had considerable experience with induction-heating calculating methods and has studied the reaction of others confronted with the problem of designing coils and predicting performance. It is a difficult job at best when one considers the great variety of materials heated and the almost limitless variety of shapes encountered. It is little wonder that the average en...

  • A new stability criterion of linear servomechanisms by a graphical method

    When the optimum condition of a control system is sought with the help of analog computers, the usual procedure is to vary parameters such as time constants and gains of control elements. However, with the analytical method, it is difficult to express the character of the system explicitly in terms of these parameters because some of the coefficients of the characteristic equation are functions of...
