    This paper discusses the problems and solutions of applying reactive compensation, either static or dynamic, to industrial power systems supplying large blocks of dc power from diode or thyristor converters. The resonance between power capacitors and system reactance can produce high harmonic voltages caused by the harmonic currents generated by converters. The interaction between these harmonic v...

    A new electrical transmission drive that insures an adjustable constant speed difference between a pair of mechanical shafts independent of load conditions or speed level is described in the paper. This generalized electrical shaft comprises two rotor interconnected induction machines, fed from different frequencies and two dc machines forming a double Kramer cascade. The use of the Kramer cascade... View full abstract»

    Ten to 100 kVA multimotor variable frequency inverter systems are generally unstable over part of their frequency range. Experimental results from dozens of tests made with single and multimotors, and with several inverters varying in capacity and output impedance, are presented. Aberrations in output shaft angular velocity is the measured variable. Both gain and phase measurements are made while ... View full abstract»

    The gas industry for years has used the same philosophy of gas measurement; however, today's gas supply picture is making it imperative that accurate and immediate data on volumes are available. The approach described in this paper is a computerized system affording continuous readouts at central gas control offices for monitoring and billing. View full abstract»

    The sparking voltage (Vs) and maximum presparking corona current (Imax) of needle-to-plane coronas have been measured as independent functions of polarity, tip radius (r), and needle-to-plane spacing (S). For a negative needle, Vs and Imax increase with S but are independent of r. For positive polarity, Vs and Imax increase with both S and r. Thus to incre... View full abstract»

    An analytical computer model of an ink jet printing system was created. Based upon the values of 13 input parameters, the program delivers predictions of the forces acting on individual drops and their resulting dynamic behavior. Predictions of drop displacements and flight times were used to infer drop pattern appearance resulting from a given input signal. The computer model was based upon theor... View full abstract»
