• ### Effect of Total Voltage on Breakdown in Vacuum

Publication Year: 1935, Page(s):1315 - 1320
Cited by:  Papers (16)
| | PDF (1468 KB)

The results of a series of high voltage breakdown tests between metal electrodes in high vacuum are reviewed, with consideration of the observed inverse relation between cathode gradient at breakdown and gap length. This leads to the conclusion that the current that flows between electrodes as the conditions for high voltage breakdown are approached must involve positive ions from the anode. The d...

Cited by:  Papers (1)
| | PDF (1895 KB)

The short circuit test of a salient pole synchronous machine in which rated armature current is being circulated is conventionally used for determining the load loss. In certain cases, it is necessary also to know the load losses when the machine is operated at rated conditions of voltage, current, and power factor. Methods for predetermining the short circuit losses are given in detail in this pa... View full abstract»
