    Section 220-36 of the 1990 National Electrical Code is an optional method to calculate the the service entrance and main panel size for new restaurants. When Section 220-36 is used for design it frequently results in smaller service entrance and main panel sizes than the “standard or conventional” method. Cost studies have shown that about two-thirds of all new restaurants could use Se... View full abstract»

  • Investigations of voltage flicker in electric arc furnace power systems

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):28 - 34
    Cited by:  Papers (32)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2664 KB)

    Operation of rapidly varying loads such as AC and DC arc furnaces in large industrial power systems will cause voltage flicker on the utility system. System planning will help in determining the available short-circuit duty at the point-of-common-coupling to keep the voltage flicker within acceptable limits. Perceptible flicker limit curves are useful in determining the amount of flicker in a syst... View full abstract»

  • A voltage sag study in an industry with adjustable speed drives

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):16 - 19

    This article presents voltage sag measurements and their analysis, which were performed in two industries for a period of 17 months. Voltage sags are caused by faults in the utility's transmission system, since both industries are fed by a 115 kV line, but from different circuits. Even faults in 230 or 400 kV lines are felt by the industries' entrance substation as voltage sags. These events cause... View full abstract»

  • History [origin of the inverter]

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):64 - 66

    David Prince probably coined the term inverter. It is unlikely that any living person can now establish with certainty that Prince (or anyone else) was the originator of this commonly used engineering term. However in 1925 Prince did publish an article in the GE Review (vol.28, no.10, p.676-81) cited “The Inverter”. His article contains nearly all important elements required by modern ...

  • Power disturbance and quality: light flicker voltage requirements

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):20 - 27
    Cited by:  Papers (10)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1376 KB)

    Emphasis on power quality has brought renewed attention to the old subject of light flicker. There is a need to review the technical basis for flicker tolerance curves used as guides to satisfactory installations. More or less frequently recurring low-amplitude voltage disturbances can cause electric lights to flicker. Light flicker voltage requirements prescribe the maximum permissible voltage fl...

  • Power system compatibility with industrial process equipment

    Who has the responsibility of preventing power quality induced downtime for industrial process equipment? Some say the electric utility should provide power free from abnormal variations. Others have said that manufacturers must build equipment that can tolerate any electrical disturbance. Perhaps users should design or specify their industrial systems to be insensitive to power variation. This ar... View full abstract»

  • Refinery-utility collaboration to increase value

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):4 - 10

    Severe pressures to reduce costs, improve reliability, and generate higher shareholder value have helped to promote a successful change in the relationship between a major Canadian petroleum refinery and a large electrical utility. The relationship has evolved from a traditional customer/supplier relationship to a new business approach based on collaboration. New ideas have created win-win situati... View full abstract»
