  • Design considerations for large industrial semiconductor rectifiers

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):1 - 5

    THE SUCCESS in the use of germanium rectifier cells in low-voltage industrial rectifiers since their introduction in 1952 has created a need for higher voltage rectifiers with comparable advantages in efficiency and low initial and maintenance cost. To obtain higher voltages, germanium cells must be operated in series until such time that higher voltages per single cell are made possible. View full abstract»

  • The electrical analog for determining temperature distribution in electrical components

    SPACE and weight limitations in present-day aircraft necessitate miniaturization of air-borne electric equipment. Such miniaturization generally results in high heat dissipation per unit volume which may lead to local temperatures which exceed the material limitations, causing failure of the component. To avoid such failure, electrical engineers must examine the heat-transfer problem when designin... View full abstract»

  • An automatic gage controller for a 56-inch reversing steel mill

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):10 - 16

    THIS PAPER describes an automatic gage-control system which has recently been put into service on a 56-inch 4-high reversing cold mill. Measurement of gage is achieved by suitable addition of signals proportional to the force tending to separate the work rolls and the unloaded separation between the work rolls. Control of gage is by screwdown and strip tension. View full abstract»

  • Terminal spacings for high-altitude and ultrahigh-temperature electronic transformer applications

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):16 - 19
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1734 KB)

    Future electronic equipment mounted aboard high-speed military aircraft and guided missiles will have to withstand high altitudes, ultrahigh temperatures, and radiation. Present goals as established by the U. S. Air Force for electronic power transformers are 100,000 feet altitude, 500 C (degrees centigrade) ambient temperature, and intense nuclear radiation. With terminal spacings normally design... View full abstract»

    THE GENERAL STUDY of the transient performance of the synchronous machine is based on Park's1,2 theory. Various authors have presented useful methods for the study of this subject, and a complete bibliography is contained in reference 3. Problems related to the transient operation of the synchronous machine have been treated as well, aiming at the representation of the synchronous machine for anal... View full abstract»

    CONTROL of railway traffic from a central location requires the transfer of large amounts of information between the central location and many points along the railroad. The number of wayside information points depends on the type of signaling installed, which in turn depends on the type and amount of traffic handled by the railroad. Certainly, effective communication is required with all location... View full abstract»

    THE HEATING of dielectric materials by means of microwave energy was investigated in the General Electric Company a decade ago by members of the Research Laboratory, who demonstrated the feasibility of preheating plastics and heating foods using a magnetron oscillator at a frequency of 1,000 mc (megacycles). In recent years the GL-6787 magnetron, operating in the 915-mc Industrial-Scientific-Medic... View full abstract»

    LARGE installations of electric heating depend for their success on a correct analysis of the many technical problems involved. Too often these are not given the proper study and unsatisfactory operations result from inadequate engineering design. View full abstract»

    An extensive testing program for anode breakers using a high-capacity power-rectifier system of the Aluminum Company of America was an unusual opportunity for an appraisal of the combined performance of the system equipment. The information gave an evaluation of the protection to the equipment and has provided a better understanding of the influence of the system components on operating service co... View full abstract»
