  • Electronics in meteorological instrumentation

    Publication Year: 1974, Page(s):1201 - 1223
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3488 KB)

    The review traces the development of electronics as applied to meteorological instrumentation. A brief introduction and history is followed by a short survey of meteorological communications, illustrating the need for the rapid availability of accurate current data in forecasting work. The development of the use of electronics in instrumental methods is then traced with reference to the work done ... View full abstract»

    The various possible means of rapid transport on which work is proceeding in various countries are described. These include means of very high-speed comfortable travel between towns (Advanced Passenger Train (APT) and Hovertrain), commuter travel (into and out of towns: Victoria Line, BART system) and, for more personal transport of small or larger groups within towns, computer-controlled tracked ...

    The subject is introduced by referring to the development of rural electrification since the early 1920s, and describes the British rural electrification programme 1953?63, which ensured that by the latter date 85% of farms in Great Britain had a public supply of electricity. After reviewing the state of farming today, and pointing out that the scale of operations is still increasing while the lab... View full abstract»

    The paper begins with an historical account of the evolution of the turbogenerator, emphasing the landmarks in its development. Against the background of probable future requirements, a critical assessment is made of current design philosophies and their limitations are examined. The barriers to advancement in technology, in materials, and in physical size and weight are identified and the resulti... View full abstract»

    The paper is intended for the general nonspecialised reader, but sufficient detailed information has been included for those whose work is closely associated with cables. Introductory Sections cover cable standards and codes of practice in current use, together with a brief historical review. Conductors are dealt with separately, and it is described how, for economic reasons, aluminium has now alm... View full abstract»
