    The application of adjustable frequency static inverters to induction motor speed control has resulted in a diversity of inverter designs. In this paper, the state-variable formulation is applied to the analysis of two widely used drive systems incorporating square-wave inverters with 180° and 120° firing logic. Measured characteristics of an actual drive system are included, and the results are... View full abstract»

    A single-phase bridge inverter system is analyzed. It is assumed that the inverter output voltage waveform is pulse-width modulated to control the system voltage. The system involves a closed-loop control containing a pulse modulator supplying a general filter. A feedback signal which is a function of the filter output is compared with a reference constant to deliver the error signal which determi... View full abstract»

    The static Ward-Leonard drive suffers from two major disadvantages: 1) poor power factor when the phase-controlled converter supplying the motor is operated at a delayed triggering angle, and 2) the problems associated with discontinuous armature current when the machine is lightly loaded. If asymmetrical triggering technique is judiciously applied to a converter-controlled dc drive, it improves n... View full abstract»

    All engineers concerned with the design of an automated process require a clear understanding of the desired operation. The Operational Control Statement clearly expresses the control desired in a simplified, tabular form that electrical engineers and nonelectrical engineers can readily write and read. It expresses requirements for starting, sustaining, interlocking, time delay, sequenced events, ... View full abstract»

    MOST electrical engineers are aware of the vulnerability of above grade cables to fire and other hazards that could exist, and they are concerned about methods of protecting these cables from such dangers. The intent of underground methods is to provide protection for long cable runs from possible hazards created by nearby units. Other methods can be used within segments of an operating unit where...

    Railroad operations have for many years been plagued with poor safety performance at grade crossings. Many lives are lost each year in accidents at crossings, to say nothing of costly injuries and property damage sustained. The situation has gotten worse with the advent of soundproofed cars, being driven at high speed in conditions of poor visibility. Clearly then, some improved method of warning ...

    Etched metal foil elements are gaining recognition as a practical new way of heating appliances. They are super thin, lightweight, and offer great flexibility and versatility in applying the heat where it is needed. For the appliance manufacturer, the foil heater offers several major advantages over the traditional strip or tubular types. View full abstract»

    Great progress has been made in the efficiencies of light sources used in outdoor and industrial lighting during the past decade. Today's high intensity discharge (HID) lamps provide up to 140 lm/W compared to approximately 17 lm/W for the filament lamp. Each of the different HID light sources¿mercury, metal halide, and high-pressure sodium¿require different ballasting techniques. To obtain maxi... View full abstract»

    Time-dependent (sequence control) processes lend themselves to control techniques that differ from those employed in other real-time control applications. Some tasks of the computer are time critical; however, many tasks can operate in a time-deferred mode to increase the utilization of the computer. Control systems for a pipeline operation are examples of this control philosophy. The computer is ... View full abstract»

    The reduction in capital cost and the changing relationship of energy costs combine to make electrically driven compressors an attractive alternative to the most advanced gas powered compressor stations for natural gas pipelines. On a typical 1250-mi pipeline with 20 000-hp compressor stations, electric drives will cut capital costs to one-half and produce annual savings of $12 million. This paper... View full abstract»
