    This paper deals with the development of steam engines and motors for power applications at the site in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The longevity of some installations of steam engine drives was due to the cost of replacing engines with electric motors. As use of electrically driven mills began to gain acceptance during the early 1900s, manufacturers of steam engines for rolling mills began, understa... View full abstract»

    Many challenges arise in the planning and maintenance of an electric distribution utility's physical plant. This article discusses factors leading to the development and the implementation of the system prioritization approach. Regardless of the approach, each utility performs planning studies and an objective approach to prioritizing system improvements has been developed View full abstract»

    This article examines the lessons learned in development and operation of the first disconnectable floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) offshore oil platform to be built for the North Atlantic. To assist in organizing the lessons learned into a framework that applies to other projects, this article investigates the following stages of the project: specification, design, construction, ...

    This paper deals with the voltage unbalance in three-phase circuits which introduces additional losses and reduces the stability of the 600 V distribution system. For automatic voltage regulation, there are methods of voltage-level optimization available that will compensate for voltage changes. These generally involve a tap-changing transformer in combination with an automatic voltage regulator. ... View full abstract»

    This paper deals with the use of an automatic tuned capacitor bank connected to a transformer, where the number of capacitors used is automatically adjusted based on the actual load. Capacitor switching is a function of the power factor controller which detects the base frequency and changes the operation automatically to 50 or 60 Hz. The capacitor bank sizing is a function of the practical air ci... View full abstract»

    This article investigates capacitor failures and fuse operations in an automatically switched capacitor bank in an industrial facility. The fuses that cleared were protecting individual capacitor steps in the bank. It was initially believed that harmonics were the source of the problem. The investigation determined that the failures were occurring due to capacitor energization transients from an u... View full abstract»

  • How sensitive is your ground fault protection?

    Single-phase reclosers are the normal choice for rural electric cooperatives which is designed to open for a continuous load of 140 A. However, when load currents exceeds the 70 A/phase range, three-phase reclosers are often selected to meet the increased load current requirements. The increased phase current settings cannot sense or interrupt for a minimum fault associated. Neutral current settin... View full abstract»
