    THE AMERICAN PEOPLE recognize that their country has a tremendous capacity to produce goods of all kinds. They have seen this country turn out prodigious quantities as materiel for support of its Army, Navy, and Air Force and for the support of its allies in defending the world against the destruction of democracy. The people have great faith in the country's power to produce. This power hinges up... View full abstract»

    IT SHOULD BE CLEAR from what has already been said today that the major problems confronting the nation are in the field of manpower or are closely related to manpower. It is also true that in the manpower field the problem is most acute and has its greatest impact for the age groups coinciding with the age of college attendance. This makes the present manpower crisis extraordinarily important for... View full abstract»

    BEYOND THE NECESSITY for technological preparedness in the military sense, the engineering profession is faced with the challenge of increasing the productivity of industry and improving the material standard of living. Either in itself constitutes a ringing challenge, but when the two are superimposed the necessity for aggressive attack upon the problem becomes even greater. In this period of our...

  • Protection of electric equipment against corrosion

    Publication Year: 1951, Page(s): 956
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (679 KB)

    CORROSION OF VITAL PARTS of electric equipment presents a serious problem in many industries which manufacture or use chemicals, or in which corrosive gases, dusts, or liquids are a by-product of the process operations. It is also present in plants located near salt water, in mines, and even in steam-generating plants which use hogged fuel or coal. Corrosion of electric apparatus not only causes h...

  • Power-factor testing for finding insulation values

    Publication Year: 1951, Page(s): 961
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (349 KB)

    THE DIELECTRIC-LOSS and power-factor method of testing insulation has been in use by many operating companies for almost 20 years for determining when new equipment meets minimum requirements for insulation and to keep equipment in use in good operating condition through adequate maintenance. The equipment for making dielectric-loss and power-factor tests consists of means for supplying a-c potent... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (341 KB)

    ALLOWABLE AND actual loadings of transformers of the Commonwealth Edison Company have increased considerably in the past 15 years with consequent rises in transformer temperatures. Oils with improved oxidation stability have gained increased importance, especially for older type transformers in service. An immediate interest developed in inhibited oil when it became commercially available in 1946,... View full abstract»

    MODERN CONTROL ROOMS in utility and industrial power stations are nerve centers of multimillion-dollar operations. Lighting for these important work areas can be provided in various ways depending upon what limits are assigned the task. If one considers the medium of lighting as a small but important part of the power plant entity and it is recognized that over-all economy is the result of economi... View full abstract»

  • Line-drop compensation on single-phase regulators

    Publication Year: 1951, Page(s): 983
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (340 KB)

    WHEN SINGLE-PHASE voltage regulators are connected in delta or in open-delta on 3-phase systems, the regulator is excited by the line-to-line voltage, but it transmits line current. For this reason, a line-drop compensator in the control circuit of a regulator so connected has a 30-degree phase difference between its voltage and current supplies. The proper operation of the regulator depends upon ... View full abstract»

    WIDESPREAD INTEREST in 2,6 ditertiary butyl para cresol (DBPC) as an inhibitor for transformer oils has resulted in extensive usage, largely based on evaluation by laboratory means. Earlier studies reported in a paper by the authors1 on long operation of small semi-sealed transformers indicated that evaluation in actual transformers was desirable and also that useful information might b...

    Block diagram networks consisting of linear unidirectional elements form the basis for this simple and direct method of transforming and reducing networks for analysis. Particularly applicable to servomechanisms and control circuits, this method is similar in approach to Y-delta transformation and series-parallel reduction for solving ordinary networks.
