    THE conquest of dark by means of artificial illumination is considered one of the all-time greatest achievements of mankind. Nothing much can be accomplished in a dark environment. Over one hundred years ago, illuminating gas, carbon arcs, candles, kerosene, and other types of oil lamps were the most widely used artificial light in the world. In 1879, Edison invented the first practical electric l... View full abstract»

    A gas-fired commercial water heater has been developed which achieves a steady-state efficiency of over 95 percent and can obtain overall service efficiencies above 90 percent in many applications. These high levels of efficiency are obtained by operating in the condensing mode over a substantial portion of the duty cycle. The use of a power burner and a coil-type heat exchanger results in a compa... View full abstract»

    In a thyristorized load commutated inverter synchronous motor drive system, the inverter relies on the back EMF of the synchronous motor to provide the reverse voltage for commutation. The level of the back EMF is a function of both the synchronous motor's field current and rotational speed. The inverter operating frequency is determined by the motor speed and number of pole pairs. For a fixed thy... View full abstract»

    The ANSI 49 rectifier circuit given in the ANSI Standard C34.2-1968, Section 4 is a single-way three-phase input rectifier that has 120├é┬░rectifier conduction, six-pulse output, and does not use an interphase transformer. It is a very desirable circuit but has not been used extensively. Part of the reason for this is the need for separate phase shift transformers to cancel the source. harmonic curr...
