    The paper covers a number of thermal or calorimeter tests which were made on a 55,000-kva. generator at the Queenston generating station of the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario. The objects of the tests were to determine stray-load losses on short circuit and under rated load, and to obtain some information regarding the accuracy of this type of test. The paper includes descriptions of t... View full abstract»

    The additional power generated on the Mokelumne River has a peak capacity in excess of 150,000 kw. It is transmitted over a double-circuit 220-kv. transmission line approximately 109 miles to Newark substation where it is fed into the existing 110-kv. and 60-kv. networks of the Pacific Gas and Electric Company. Newark substation has rapidly grown into the most important substation on the system an... View full abstract»

    Studies of topography and run-off have made possible a comprehensive development of the power resources on the Mokelumne River in California. Originally developed in 1902 to yield 100 million kw-hr. annually, additional storage and increased generating facilities will produce a ten-fold increase in annual output. Two major storage reservoirs and four power houses, one of which replaces the origina... View full abstract»

    The paper describes operating experience with tie-line load regulators on the tie connecting the Colfax Power Station of the Duquesne Light Co. and the Springdale Station of the West Penn Power Co. A description is given of the equipment used and also of supplementary equipment, such as program loading equipment installed at Colfax to maintain the most economic division of load between the various...

    A new approach to an important problem in the field of electric power is offered by the author, who limits his discussion to the possibilities of tuned lines rather than their practical application. He presents the results of extensive research work, and on the basis of laboratory experiments points out that through the use of higher transmission frequencies, the efficiency of a given line might b...

    Radiotelephone service between the United States and Europe was established January 7, 1927 with one circuit and with service to limited areas. Facilities and service have been greatly improved and extended and rates have been reduced. Present scope of service is described and reference made to consistent increases in transatlantic telephone messages handled. This increase indicates that this serv... View full abstract»

    In 1926 it became apparent that increasing demands for telephone service on the Pacific Coast would warrant the completion of a telephone toll cable between San Francisco and Los Angeles before the end of 1930. This cable, which is the longest west of the Mississippi and which with buildings and equipment represents an investment of approximately $10,000,000 is strategically located for giving ser...

  • The Kindling of Electric Sparkover Based on Lichtenberg Figures

    A simple, experimental method is described for studying the kindling mechanism of electric sparkover. Experimental evidence is presented which tends to prove that electrons and not protons or positive ions are the active carriers in the kindling mechanism; that Lichtenberg figures form the initial step in the kindling process; that the sparkover channel develops from the positive Lichtenberg figur...

    Mercury arc rectifier design of today was arrived at in an endeavor to reduce the frequency of backfire. Efficiency and cost are sacrificed to obtain sufficient backfire immunity. Study of backfires in actual rectifiers and laboratory tubes indicates that this occurrence is a random one. Backfires differ in kind from other breakdown phenomena because they do not occur with certainty after some def... View full abstract»

    In a previous article1 the author showed the manner in which under different conditions the voltage on transmission systems will rise due to the dropping of load, and described some means of limiting the voltage rise to avoid overstressing insulation. This paper describes further means of limiting the voltage under such conditions, considering first an improved type of regulator and whe... View full abstract»
