  • Satellites go commercial — for communications

    Publication Year: 1961, Page(s):569 - 574

    Multifold increase in international communication is foreseen within the next 20 years. To meet this situation, the Bell System has proposed a preliminary plan involving 26 ground terminals and active satellites in somewhat random polar orbits, 3,000 miles high. Broadband channels, each accommodating 600 telephone circuits, would be provided. Experimental relaying will be in co-operation with over... View full abstract»

    BONDED resistors made of semiconducting silicon carbide are widely used as valve blocks in lightning arresters. During severe duty they may fall thermally; it is the purpose of this article to develop analytical means of studying the thermal behavior during transient duty. View full abstract»

    THE GROUNDING of supporting structures and enclosures for d-c power circuits and apparatus has been a controversial subject ever since metal-enclosed power rectifiers and switchgear came into use in the electrochemical and other industries. Many users of d-c equipment naturally followed the well-established a-c practice of solidly grounding enclosures through a low-resistance conductor. Relatively... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1215 KB)

    An analysis of the fundamental concepts of the quantity calculus is attempted in order to answer the controversial question whether rationalization of electromagnetic equations is to be understood as a change of units or of quantities. It reveals that, from any point of view, the question can be answered only in the first sense. View full abstract»

  • A new kind of tachometer

    Publication Year: 1961, Page(s):590 - 594
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2680 KB)

    The simple speed-indicating device described possesses low inertia, low friction, no residual output at zero speed, and a d-c output voltage precisely proportional to speed. Although this tachometer is still in the prototype stage, it is anticipated that an instrument can be produced which would be superior to the types now available. View full abstract»

    THE DELIVERY of required voltage to the feeding point of distribution feeders, as limited by the circuit and load parameters, is the subject of this study. For this it is necessary to relate the simultaneous interactions of the following variables: station bus voltage, feeder load, feeder voltage drop, and voltage regulator range. The physical sequence of the essential components of a single-phase... View full abstract»

    IN ACCEPTING this fine gold medal commemorating a distinguished electrical engineer, Benjamin G. Lamme, I am gratefully aware both of the fortunate circumstances which time and again led me down an interesting trail of professional effort and of my enormous indebtedness to others — my associates, teachers, and students at Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, Columbia, and especially MIT, where I...
