    A description is presented of some control shield designs used commercially at 345 and 460 kv, along with results of laboratory tests indicating the trend of the art for multiconductor systems above 460 kv. Improvements in electrical performance and reduced capital costs are shown possible with towers designed for new suspension hardware developed for multipleconductor bundles. View full abstract»

  • A low-speed thyratron counter-scaler unit

    Publication Year: 1961, Page(s):189 - 193
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2048 KB)

    Counter-scaler units are used in many areas of electrical engineering and the physical sciences where measurement and control of pulse-type signals are required. Component circuits and operation are described of a scaler unit that can achieve any desired scaling factor by the use of feedback in cascaded binary circuits. View full abstract»

  • Gas-discharge lamp fixtures for aircraft navigation

    Publication Year: 1961, Page(s): 196
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (494 KB)

    NAVIGATION LIGHTS provide the observer with the information required to determine the position or orientation of the aircraft and, thus, its direction of travel, so that a collision avoidance maneuver may be executed. One way to improve the aircraft navigation lights is to increase the intensity of the lights so they may be observed from a greater distance. View full abstract»

  • Reclosing relay for ring bus substations

    Publication Year: 1961, Page(s): 197
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1046 KB)

    RING buses as herein discussed are divided by circuit breakers into sections, each of which provides termination of a source or load. Each source or load may be connected to its section by a motor-operated air-break switch. Such a ring bus poses problems not encountered with a straight bus. A fault trips both circuit breakers of a section. When the circuit breakers trip, it is important that the r... View full abstract»
