    One's powers of observation need not be excessively keen to notice that each person and every institution tends to develop its own ¿circles of concern¿ regarding specific topics. Although such circles of concern are often geographic in nature, rarely are they literally circles. Sometime they are time-related, in which case they might better be likened to an antenna pattern, one lobe extending ba... View full abstract»

    As this issue goes to press, Consolidated Edison, that much maligned electric utility serving New York City's demanding populace, faces bankruptcy unless the New York State legislature takes measures to provide state aid to the ailing power company. Part of its trouble stems from a rise in the utility's oil bill of $450 million, a figure Con Ed chairman Charles Luce notes is more than three times ... View full abstract»

  • Profile: The ¿other¿ electric company: American Electric Power is a study in contrasts ¿ anachronistic, yet progressive, and a giant in spite of its relatively low profile

    For engineers and nonengineer consumer alike, General Electric and Westinghouse Electric are household names. And as for utilities, most of us have heard of Public Service Electric and Gas, and Con Edison. But who, besides the power engineer, its customers, and its corporate stock-holders, knows American Electric Power? Yet the company today ranks as the largest investor-owned U.S. utility, with e...

    Of all the energy consumed in the U.S., 37 percent is used by private individuals for their homes and automobiles. Although the automobile accounts for about 15.5 percent of that total, and represents the single most energy-consuming product in our lives, the combination of space heating, water heating, and air conditioning consumes slightly more energy ¿ 17 percent. The remaining 4.5 percent cov... View full abstract»

    A new title is rapidly entering organization charts, that of the energy czar. In many companies, his sweeping powers have this winter affected even plush executive suites, sending chills up the spines of top brass and workers alike. In a similar vein, the approach of summer promises that even the most passive work tasks will be sweaty. View full abstract»

  • Energy conservation: Exploding some myths: When it comes to cutting energy expenditures, the seemingly obvious may prove fallacious under scrutiny

    The road to energy conservation, we are told, is paved with simplistic ¿rules¿: cut voltage supplies by 5 percent, remove every other fluorescent lamp from fixtures, avoid electric space heating, etc., etc. Unfortunately, many of these suggestions are either completely or partially erroneous. And they can even be counterproductive, causing an increase in energy consumption. The misconceptions ha... View full abstract»

    In their annual summations of 1973 Institute activities, the Standing Boards and Committees of the IEEE have reported an impressive series of accomplishments. In many cases, these involved actions designed to improve internal efficiencies ¿ both of a monetary nature and in internal communications. In other cases, Board and Committee energies were outwardly directed in order to further the Institu... View full abstract»

    A low-cost 16-channel data acquisition system in one compact module incorporates digital and analog integrated circuits. The module, called the DT1640, is designed to fit inside a minicomputer where it uses the mini's power supply rather than having separate power. It can be positioned on the same printed circuit board that the computer's digital logic circuits occupy. View full abstract»
