  • Power relationships and temperature dependence in the D-C corona field

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):1 - 4
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (649 KB)

    The study of d-c corona discharge over a period of many years has resulted in a considerable body of literature on the subject. However, relatively little has been reported on corona properties over extended temperature ranges. At least two experimental studies have been published, both using coaxial cylindrical geometry. The first, by Koller and Fremont,1 treats negative corona at temperatures to... View full abstract»

  • Back-transient diode logic

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):4 - 9
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (994 KB)

    Conventional diode switching circuits show a significant decline in performance and efficiency as their speed of operation is increased. Faster rise and fall times require correspondingly-greater peak currents to charge and discharge circuit capacitance, at the cost of increased static power dissipation, drive requirements, and noise. These peak currents are in demand for only a brief initial and ... View full abstract»

  • A nondestructive breakdown phenomenon in selenium rectifiers

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):9 - 14
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1094 KB)

    Under conditions of excessive current or voltage overload a rectifier will exhibit some form of breakdown. Under practical conditions, breakdown is normally destructive although, with proper safeguards, it may be controlled. A voltage-induced electric breakdown is the type most commonly cited in theory, while in practice a considerable contribution from thermal effects is observed. Selenium rectif... View full abstract»

  • The effect of source and sink thermal resistance on thermoelectric generator performance

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):15 - 19
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    A static analysis of the thermoelectric generator is necessary in order to specify the electrical loading condition for maximum energy conversion efficiency and to determine the corresponding efficiency. Ioffe has done this for the simple case of a single p-n junction thermocouple, and his analysis has been extended to include the effect of temperature dependent parameters by Borrego, Lyden, and B...

    With the emphasis today upon extended environmental conditions for electronic equipment used in military aircraft and guided missiles, there is a pressing need for the simultaneous testing of such equipment under two or more of these extreme environments. This paper describes a program completed by the General Electric Company covering the testing of spark gaps in the Brookhaven National Laborator... View full abstract»

  • Stable transistor wide-band D-C amplifiers

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):26 - 33

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1089 KB)

    Stable d-c amplification is required in many engineering applications. In the past, vacuum-tube circuits have been developed which meet most low drift requirements by utilizing differential amplification, chopper, and chopper stabilization techniques. Transistors offer many inherent advantages such as small size, long life, no filament power, low power dissipation and good reliability, but they in... View full abstract»

  • Instabilities of push-pull magnetic amplifiers feeding the field of an electric machine

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):33 - 36

    The causes of instability of inductively loaded, center-tap magnetic amplifiers, and the remedies for this instability are well known.1ï¿¿ï¿¿ï¿¿4 If such a stabilized magnetic amplifier is used to energize the field of an electric machine, such as the shunt field of a d-c generator, the armature voltage of this machine will increase or decrease smoothly with the control voltage of the magnetic amp...

  • Saturablc-reactor control of full-wave and biphase rectifiers

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):36 - 39
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (764 KB)

    In many rectifier applications means must be provided to vary the output voltage. In some cases discrete control is permissible while in others the output must be continuously variable. A common method of providing the latter is to employ a saturable-core reactor in series with the primary of the rectifier transformer. View full abstract»

    The number of computing laboratories using both, analog and digital computers is greatly increasing. Each type of computer is normally operated independently of the other, receiving the computing task for which it is better suited. It is generally agreed that neither type of computer is ideal for solving all classes of problems. Analog computers, for example, are widely used for the simulation of ... View full abstract»

  • Specifying a pulse transformer for computer use

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):44 - 47
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    The pulse transformer described in this paper is a specialized current-driven device that functions as a precision component in large-scale ferrite-core memories, and also as a switching device in computer logic. Typical transformer characteristics do not satisfy the exacting demands of computer applications. Greater precision in specifying and measuring these components is required along with clo...

  • A theory for space-charge-limited currents with application to electrical precipitation

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):47 - 50

    The flow of steady electric currents in the interior of any medium is governed by three laws 1. Poisson's law which essentially relates space charge to potential. 2. Conservation of charge. 3. A law of the type of Ohm's law connecting current flow and potential gradient. In most solid and liquid conductors of technical interest, Poisson's law can be satisfactorily approximated by the simpler equat... View full abstract»

    The voltage-current relation for 4-layer diodes has been described in the literature and is characterized by regions of high and low positive resistance separated by a region of negative resistance.1,2 The transition between high positive resistance and negative resistance occurs at a potential designated as the breakover or firing potential, Vb. This breakover potential is normally specified in t... View full abstract»

    The problem of determining the minimum power that has to be dissipated by a transistor flip-flop covering a set of given specifications is one of general interest. Among the various significant considerations which determine the power level are: output power requirements, stability, temperature variations, and required speed of operation. The following considerations deal mainly with the problems ... View full abstract»

    In addition to offering public telegram services over transatlantic facilities, cable and radio carriers today offer various forms of temporary, switched teleprinter interconnections between correspondents, upon request of a calling party, in a manner and through means characteristic of long-distance telephone calls. Regardless of forms of the national teleprinter exchanges involved, the internati... View full abstract»

    The number of microwave systems that may be used on a particular frequency assignment in a given area is determined by the mutual interference between the systems. The Bell System is particularly conscious of this problem because of its extensive use of broadband microwave systems. View full abstract»

    There are many areas of the world where the service which can be provided by the scatter link is needed, but cannot be justified economically. One approach toward reducing costs, suggested here, is to investigate the improvements achieved through optimizing system-design parameters. View full abstract»
