    IN RECENT years the trend has been to apply ignitron rectifiers as a power supply for continuous hot strip mill main drive service. As in numerous other fields, the versatile ignitron is again demonstrating its many inherent economic advantages over conventional rotating machines and proving its rugged dependability for main drive service.

    FLASHING is one of the important considerations in the manufacture and operation of electrical equipment for diesel-electric locomotives. Its importance has increased with the placing in service of a large number of high-speed and high-powered road locomotives during the past six or seven years. Examination of a large number of motors and generators of different manufacture on high-speed road loco... View full abstract»

    UNTIL the advent of the dual-element fuse, co-ordinated fuse protection for low-voltage distribution systems was virtually impossible because the time-current characteristic of the nonrenewable and renewable fuse did not match the safe time-current characteristic of the circuit. Even short-circuit protection on a-c distribution systems was doubtful because of the lack of data on the interrupting c... View full abstract»

    MACHINE tools in which material removal is effected by the action of successive electric sparks are commercially available in the United States, most western European countries, and are known to be in extensive use in the Soviet Union. As a substitute for industrial diamond tools in the machining of hard materials and as a means of performing machining operations which are otherwise impossible, el... View full abstract»

    IN FIG. 1 is shown a compensator cascaded with a control system. The combination will be called the compensated system. In this paper the transfer function of the control system is assumed to be linear and that for the compensator is at least piecewise linear. Each compensator discussed in the paper has incorporated, within its structure, a delay line or short-time memory unit, Fig. 2, into which ... View full abstract»

  • Magnetic amplifiers in metering direct current on electrolytic cell lines

    Publication Year: 1954, Page(s):93 - 96

    SEVERAL months ago every publication devoted to power and those covering industry in general carried articles telling the story of magnetic amplifiers. They told of using magnetic amplifiers with servomechanisms for automatic pilots, to control speeds of large motors, to regulate voltages of large generators, and any number of other applications, in some cases replacing equipment that had been acc...
