    Provides a brief biography of a pioneering woman in electrical engineering. In the fall of 1911, Edith Clarke enrolled in the civil engineering program at the University of Wisconsin, but left after a year to become a computing assistant to George A. Campbell at American Telephone and Telegraph (AT&T). She learned a great deal about the theory of transmission lines and electrical circuits from Cam... View full abstract»

    The aim of the work described in this article is to find out the effect of cathode-heating voltage during continuous burning to the lamp life in dimming use. In order to find out the effect of cathode heating voltage to the lamp life, a lamp-life test was made. In addition to the nominal cathode heating voltage, three different cathode heating levels were chosen, namely -10, +10, and +20% of the n... View full abstract»

    A new class of permanent-magnet (PM) machines, named memory motors for their ability to change the intensity of magnetization and memorize the flux density level in rotor magnets is described in the article. A memory motor can be built either as a variable-flux or pole-changing machine. In both machine types, the magnetization of PMs can be simply varied by a short current pulse, with no need for ...

    Some fundamental constraints on the performance of micromotor technology have been discussed. Several aspects of performance were explored, including energy density, force density, size, constraints on motor-drive circuitry, motor topologies, and friction. Analysis shows that electrostatic machines have advantages as microfabrication processes achieve finer resolution, and, in fact, can exceed the... View full abstract»
