    The authors present a new standardized type of gearless traction machine drive system with a PM motor for high-speed elevators. Some control functions which are indispensable for improving the performance of elevator systems have been addressed. Stringent evaluation, environment and life tests ensure that the presented system is not only high-performance but long-lasting and more reliable View full abstract»

    As capacity improvements in North American paper mills are on the increase, so too is the need to increase source megavoltamperes and interrupting ratings of main power-distribution switchgear. In addition, today's energy crisis will be resolved in part by new generation, some installed onsite at North American paper mills. This combination of higher source megavoltamperes and increased capacity w... View full abstract»

    For industrial applications, the primary consideration of any component or system is reliability. In this aspect, the variable frequency drive (VFD) is now generally regarded as a mature technology of proven track record in a multitude of diverse applications. The adjustable speed coupling system (ASCS), as a newer technology, needs to develop a comparable reputation which, if the mechanical conce... View full abstract»

    David Chandler Prince influenced electrical switchgear design in a way paralleled by few other engineers. He made decisions and took actions that changed forever the way power engineers design and apply switchgear. His contributions continue to influence this work. Prior to 1925, switching technologies were mostly an empirical art based on hydraulic conceptions of arc interruption. By 1935, art ev... View full abstract»

    Georgia Transmission Corporation (GTC) serves the Weyerbaeuser Flint River Mill in Oglethorpe, GA, with a new, nondedicated 115 kV radial-transmission line connecting from the North Americus substation with a tap to the South Oglethorpe substation. The Flint River mill is a cogenerator with a single 46.6 MVA steam-turbine generator fueled by biomass. The line suffered from repeated outages, primar... View full abstract»

    With the increased emphasis on cost containment and reduction, the reliability of equipment has become an area of great concern. Many managers now see reliability-centered maintenance (RCM) as a method of gaining an advantage over the competition. What does reliability entail, and how can a RCM process be implemented? This article defines what a reliability process involves and illustrates how a r... View full abstract»

    With electrical hazardous area installations in different climates around the world, it is increasingly difficult to test products for all temperature extremes. When standard testing for Class I explosion-proof equipment generally covers the temperature range of +40 to -25°C (104 to -13°F), how do you design for climates which may encounter much lower temperatures? In cold climate areas su... View full abstract»
