    MULTIPLEXING is the process by which two or more signals are combined for transmission over a common medium. Asynchronous multiplexing is any such process which does not require the various transmitters to be synchronized with each other. Thus, frequency division is such a system, but is considered here only for a comparison standard. View full abstract»

  • 5005 Aluminum alloy cables for overhead lines

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s): 405
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (957 KB)

    THE WIDESPREAD ADOPTION of aluminum conductors for urban overhead power systems during the last 10 years has created a demand for a homogeneous aluminum-alloy cable having better sag characteristics than one made of EC (electrical grade) aluminum. With 5005 aluminum alloy, cables have been developed which meet this demand. In addition, since 5005 is a nonheat-treatable alloy, wires can be produced... View full abstract»

    A THEORY has been developed for explaining the convergence of iteration methods used in the solution of power flow problems in large electric networks. This theory will predict the improvement to be expected when using certain acceleration techniques, thus giving a means for determining the fastest convergence for a given problem. The new understanding that this theory gives of the mechanism of co... View full abstract»
