    A description of synchronous inductor motor operation is given, and various characteristics are explained through a qualitative general torque equation derived in the Appendix. Performance curves as an alternating synchronous and an ON-OFF servomotor are given. In addition, operation of the motor as a digital stepper motor is described and performance shown. Its use in telemetering systems is indi... View full abstract»

    IN THE LAST few years, the use of computer control systems has expanded greatly. They have grown from simple data logging applications to enormous systems with hundreds of inputs and outputs. The result has been that the system designer must contend with myriads of complex interrelationships when he is preparing a system design and specifying it properly to the computer manufacturer. It is axiomat... View full abstract»

    IN THE PAST few decades, most of us have designed and installed numerous electrical systems employing steel conduit for the raceways. For the construction and maintenance of a complete rod, bar and cable mill, the authors used approximately 20 carloads of steel conduit within the last ten years. View full abstract»

    DURING THE PAST several years there has been a trend toward the use of highly accurate speed controllers. Digital systems using a crystal oscillator reference have incorporated counter circuitry for error integration. The steady-state accuracy of these systems approaches that of their highly accurate reference. Unfortunately, these systems are considerably more complicated and expensive than the a...

    SILICON SOLAR CELLS have been a good source of power for satellites and space probes. Their applicability for future vehicles with larger electric loads seems to be limited by cost and weight. For example, 1 × 2-centimeter (cm) silicon solar cells in the 10 to 13% efficiency range cost about $10 each, or about $350,000 per kw. Conventional panels containing silicon solar cells weigh in the order ... View full abstract»

    TWISTS AND TURNS of the ¿cold war¿ have directed attention to our polar regions as never before. Scientific curiosity has accompanied this attention, requiring our society to make accessible these frozen regions. Experience of the past decade in establishing large northern outposts ¿ Thule, Greenland, for instance ¿ has been conclusive: The most economical mode of transporting impedimenta to t...
