    In this technological age when the engineering profession is so important, it is well to remember the “Statement of Principles of Professional Conduct.” It is the duty of engineers to interest themselves in the public welfare, apply their special knowledge for the benefit of mankind, uphold the honor and dignity of their profession, and avoid association with any enterprise of questi...

    We are preparing for an atomic-fission, supersonic, electronics age, and, as we turn out the weapons of 1952, we must study and plan ahead for the weapons of 1960 and '70. By so doing, the probability exists that we will not have to use those weapons. View full abstract»

    When magnetic amplifiers are connected in cascade, circuits must be provided to compensate for the effect of quiescent current in one stage on the following stage. Several circuits are discussed, with emphasis on one which combines the best features of each of the others. View full abstract»

  • Dual selective overcurrent trip design refinements

    Publication Year: 1952, Page(s): 212
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (524 KB)

    SELECTIVE OVERCURRENT trips applied directly to large air circuit-breakers have sensitivity and accuracy approaching that of a relay, coupled with the robust construction required to withstand the shock and vibration of circuit-breaker operation. These requirements presented problems which had to be solved before satisfactory service could be obtained. View full abstract»

    Growth is an outstanding characteristic of the electric utility industry. If it is to continue growing at the past rate of speed it must have more electrical engineers to work in all phases of the industry, but particularly in top management positions. Both the companies and members of the engineering profession have a responsibility in solving this problem. View full abstract»

  • Selection of a carrier relaying system

    Publication Year: 1952, Page(s): 215
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (481 KB)

    TWO BASIC TYPES OF carrier relaying systems are available today. These are the power-directional-comparison system and the phase-comparison system. With two distinct basic systems to select from, the relay engineer is confronted with the necessity of making a choice between them for any application where use of a carrier-pilot system is indicated. The purpose of this article is to discuss the rela... View full abstract»

    I APPRECIATE THE great honor that this Medal conveys, but am not unmindful that such accomplishments that I have made are due in no small measure to the character of the engineering minds to which I have been exposed in my daily work and in my Institute activities. I have been particularly fortunate in my associations at Westinghouse. My first position was directly under Dr. Chubb and my first ass... View full abstract»

    THE QUANTITATIVE UNDERSTANDING of the behavior of a human being functioning as an element of a closed-loop control system has become a matter of considerable importance in recent years. In addition to the purely military problems of high-speed flight, fire control, and similar tasks, there are many situations where a specific knowledge of human characteristics would make possible improvements in d...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (452 KB)

    A 115-MEGAWATT 95-per-cent power-factor generator, having a short-circuit ratio of 0.66, has lost synchronism occasionally during faults in the 20 years it has been in service at the Waukegan Station of the Public Service Company of Northern Illinois. During faults the the generator terminal voltage became so low that the generator lost a large share of its load and the rotor accelerated, thus all... View full abstract»

  • Overload protection of A-C instruments

    Publication Year: 1952, Page(s): 236
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (504 KB)

    USUALLY OVERLOADED instruments sustain either mechanical damage or thermal damage or both. The application of a sudden overload develops a torque which accelerates the moving parts of the instrument. Mechanical damage may occur during such acceleration or it may occur during subsequent deceleration when the stop is reached. A slight permanent deformation of one of the parts may spoil the accuracy ... View full abstract»

  • Current asymmetry effects in circuit interruption

    Publication Year: 1952, Page(s): 240
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (495 KB)

    IN AN A-C CIRCUIT containing a substantial amount of inductance in proportion to its resistance, the current which flows immediately after the circuit is closed may be asymmetrical. Asymmetry arises from the fact that the current through an inductance cannot change in zero time from zero to any substantial value as would be required in most cases if the current were to assume its steady-state valu...
