    SOME political pundits suggest that the energy crisis is a political conspiracy to cover up the other difficulties confronting the administration. Others suggest that it is a business conspiracy to drive up prices. There are still others who believe it to be the natural evolution of our affluent society. With headlines screaming of gasoline shortages natural gas restrictions, and heating oil alloc... View full abstract»

    Actual ground faults were applied to a high-resistance grounded 13.8-kV electrical distribution system supplying power to a large chemical plant. These tests show that such a system will restrict overvoltage transients and reduce damage to equipment under ground fault conditions. Such a system is inherently safer and more reliable than an ungrounded system and offers some operating features not po... View full abstract»

    Actual ground fault tests were conducted to determine the behavior of low-magnitude arcing ground faults in a closed air-filled 13.8-kV terminal chamber. Ground current magnitudes between 10 and 50 A were allowed to flow under various ground fault conditions. The tests that were performed support the value of high-resistance grounding to promote safety and reduce damage to equipment. At higher gro... View full abstract»

    An uninterruptible ac supply system consisting of two power sources (static inverter and ac line) and a thyristor switch is presented. The thyristor switch is operated in such a way that the equalization current flow between the sources is prevented. Consequently continuous parallel operation of the sources may be applied. Faults in one of the sources do not affect the voltage supplied to the load... View full abstract»

    The use of integral-cycle conduction of power appears to be useful for resistive load control, especially in heating applications. Uniform control sensitivity may be obtained over the whole power range if the controller has a fixed ON plus OFF time with variable ON/OFF ratio. The incremental load power controllable is proportional to the number of ON plus OFF supply cycles constituting a control p... View full abstract»
