    Transient stability is assuming increasing importance in the design and operation of industrial power systems as trends toward large synchronous process drives and in-plant generation continue. Stability is the ability of a power system with multiple synchronous machines to survive disturbances such as faults, switching, and impact loading without losing synchronism. The stability of a system unde... View full abstract»

    The continuing increase in the cost of wholesale and retail electric rates has caused both consumer and regulatory attention to focus on the reasonableness of the rates being charged by utilities. Rate increases generally precipitate concern over discriminatory pricing questions. Because the resolution of rate discrimination issues in part involves a cost allocation study, it is important for the ... View full abstract»

    A comparison of installed costs for resistance, impedance, and skin effect current tracing systems for a 20-in 4-mi long line shows a definite advantage for the skin effect system. This system depends on the fact that alternating current flowing longitudinally in a steel tube can be caused to concentrate near the inner wall by including the return conductor within the tube. With proper design ther... View full abstract»

    Electrical heat tracing is clearly competitive with steam tracing for most applications on the basis of relative economics. Electrical heat tracing systems can be easier than steam tracing to engineer, less expensive to install, and less expensive to operate and maintain. Self-limiting electrical systems have a special feature of safety for hazardous (classified) areas wherein their surface temper... View full abstract»

  • Direct Flux and Torque Regulation in a PWM Inverter-Induction Motor Drive

    Publication Year: 1977 , Page(s): 139 - 146
    Cited by:  Papers (43)  |  Patents (3)
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1575 KB)  

    A dc motor drive is controlled by varying the armature current and field current. The field is a measure of flux, and the armature current times field current is a measure of torque. Various approximate means of estimating the flux and torque levels in an induction motor exist. Most of these methods are sensitive to motor parameter value changes and do not work well near zero speed. Also, the harm... View full abstract»

    After more than one year of successful operation, the design and performance of a 52.5 MW thyristor controlled rectifier installation in a chlor-alkali plant are reviewed. Procedures for final checkout of the installation before plant startup as well as field modifications made to the equipment are discussed. Maintenance procedures are outlined and advantages of thyristor controlled rectifiers are... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2239 KB)  

    The efficiency and economics of inverter circuits with high power ratings tend to be determined largely by the size of the passive elements required in the commutation circuit and, to a lesser extent, by the combined current-voltage requirements of the semiconductors. In order to facilitate comparative evaluation of inverter circuits of different configurations which are all candidates for the sam... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2814 KB)  

    Relatively small slowly varying shaft position and velocity variations superimposed on the normal running speed of dual drive grinding mill motors can cause individual motor torque variations which disturb load sharing. The magnitude of load or torque unbalance is a function of the magnitude of the mechanical variation, the type of motors used, i.e., induction or synchronous, the number of motor p...

    The dependence of the charge to mass ratio or specific charge of the spray stream on fluid and automization parameters in electrostatic spraying of various solvents and paints has been investigated. In addition, atomized paint particle sizes have been analyzed. It has been found that an optimum value of fluid conductivity exists at 2 ¿ho/cm where the specific charge of the spray stream exhibits a... View full abstract»

    In industrial electrostatic spray coating operations, liquid paint is applied to substrates of varying electrical characteristics. In many cases a metal substrate is chemically pretreated and/or primed prior to electrostatic spraying. A previously rejected part may have already received a number of thoroughly cured topcoats prior to the final spray application. Typical primers and topcoats have la... View full abstract»
