    The author gives a brief review of the life and work of Charles LeGeyt Fortescue with particular reference to his 1918 paper on the "Method of Symmetrical Co-Ordinates Applied to the Solution of Polyphase Networks" which grew out of his investigations of problems related to railway electrification, which began in 1913. As a postlude to the author's article, the paper presents Fortescue's own writi... View full abstract»

    The idea of radio frequency (RF) lighting, as well as the first RF lamp patent, appeared long before the first fluorescent and high-pressure lamps came onto the market. It took over a century for the first commercial RF lamp to appear, introducing a new era in the production of light. Progress in semiconductor power switching electronics, along with a more thorough understanding of fundamental pro... View full abstract»

    In the past, electrical heat tracing has been thought of as a minor addition to plant utilities. Today, it is recognized as a critical subsystem to be monitored and controlled. A marriage between process, mechanical, and electrical engineers must take place to ensure that optimum economic results are produced. The Internet, expert systems, and falling costs of instrumentation will all contribute t... View full abstract»

    Significant progress has been made in understanding the arc flash hazard and protecting people. Standard tests have been established to determine the incident energy required to cause ignition of non-FR clothing and evaluate the protective characteristics of FR clothing. One process for selecting FR clothing to protect personnel against arc flash injury has been presented. Protective characteristi... View full abstract»

    This article shows that adjustable speed generators for wind turbines are necessary when output power becomes higher than 1 MW. The doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) system presented in this article offers many advantages to reduce cost and has the potential to be built economically at power levels above 1.5 MW, e.g., for off-shore applications. A dynamic model of the DFIG was derived to devel... View full abstract»

  • Process control using a fiber-optic unified cabling systems

    Publication Year: 2002 , Page(s): 57 - 61
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (715 KB)  

    In an ideal world, communications cabling for process control would be simple-buy all the computer, instrumentation, and electrical equipment from a single vendor, and connect it all together using a single cabling standard. But real life is never that simple; rarely are the programmable logic controllers (PLC), distributed control systems (DCS), drives, motor controls, field instrumentation, and ... View full abstract»

    Electrical transformer insulation systems are evaluated based on economic, safety, and environmental standpoints using total life cycle analysis. Because of the inherent high efficiency of liquid-cooled transformer designs, new developments focus on improving the environmental and safety properties of fire resistant (less-flammable, high fire point) fluids. This article reports the latest findings... View full abstract»
