    SEPTEMBER 14, 1960, marked the dedication of a new ehv (extra-high-voltage) cable testing station at Cornell University. Inasmuch as the utility load doubles about every 8 years, rights of way become more difficult to obtain, and station units are larger, the need to develop 500-mva cable was foreseen in 1953.

    HEAT-RUN DATA have been obtained on an underground cable test installation, located in the side of a thoroughly drained sand hill sloping to the west and protected from local replenishment of soil moisture by the black-top cover of a company parking area. Selection of this location for an underground test site was based upon the existence of topography and soil characteristics typical of a margina... View full abstract»

  • Static vs. relay logic for aircraft protective panels

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):899 - 902
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2558 KB)

    Reasoned argument is made against the indiscriminate use of transistor or other “static” elements replacing electromechanical relays without making a thorough reliability analysis. In a particular application, an aircraft protective panel design using relays as logic elements is herein shown to be more reliable than a particular equipment transistorized design.

    THE purpose herein is to present a simplified method of calculating the voltage across the line insulation for a stroke terminating on the tower top and zero tower footing resistance based on the theory and equations derived in two previous papers. For purposes of analysis, the stroke has been resolved into two components: (1) a linear-front flat-top wave of positive charge and associated current ... View full abstract»

  • A narrow-band peak-clipping speech amplifier

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):905 - 908

    Overcrowded conditions within the radiotelephone portions of the lower-frequency amateur radio bands often make communication with low signal levels impossible because of interfering signals or noise. A design is presented, based on an analysis of the human voice, of a narrow-bandwidth high-intelligence speech amplifier for amateur and possible general use. View full abstract»

    A program for the calculation of loss formula coefficients has now been written using an approach which is not limited by analog techniques and which utilizes the unique capabilities of digital computers. The program provides a means for proceeding automatically from one step to the next during the calculation as well as greatly simplifying the preparation of the necessary data. View full abstract»

    A MAJOR problem in the field of telephone traffic engineering is the gathering and summarization of usage data. This is also the first step in the process of providing the telephone subscriber with the proper type and quantity of telephone facilities to give a satisfactory grade of service, which is the general responsibility of the traffic engineer. Prior to the introduction of the Traffic Usage ... View full abstract»
