    A-C GENERATORS in modern power plants usually are operated in unit connection directly on high-voltage bus bars, that is, alternator and transformer form one unit so that the circuit breaker at generator voltage is eliminated. A preferred method of ground protection for such units has been indirect high-resistance neutral grounding by connecting the primary winding of a distribution transformer be... View full abstract»

    AS A RESULT of experience in the operation of experimental heat pump systems in Philadelphia, Pa., it has become evident that it is necessary to direct efforts toward improving substantially the annual load factor of electrical service supply to such systems, to overcome the competitive handicaps inherent in utilizing electricity for house heating. The author believes that this objective may be ac... View full abstract»

    EARTH SEEMS to be superior to air or water as a source for heat pumps. Its ambient temperature is higher and less variable than outdoor air, and its use does not involve problems of accessibility or recirculation such as would accompany the use of surface or underground water. However, little factual information has been available on the heat transfer characteristics of the earth, particularly as ... View full abstract»

    EXPERIENCE OF 42 sleet seasons has enabled the Pennsylvania Water and Power Company to develop methods of combating sleet accumulations which provide satisfactory performance of lines susceptible to sleet troubles. Design improvements also have been made, and a 1931 design has given perfect performance in an area where sleet storms are prevalent. View full abstract»

  • Comparative studies of new push-pull methods for pole-top resuscitation

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):132 - 137
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1922 KB)

    All push-pull pole-top methods of resuscitation, evaluated on five apneic subjects, proved 1½ times as effective for pulmonary ventilation as the standard pole-top method. The double-rock push-pull seems best for several reasons. A discussion by E. W. Oesterreich questions the advisability of adopting this new system unless it can be proved conclusively either that the present method is ina... View full abstract»

    QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN RAISED, mostly by safety engineers of electric power supply companies, as to whether the basic principle of the recently accepted Holger-Nielsen push-pull prone method of artificial respiration is applicable as an advantageous revision of the pole-top method of artificial respiration. As a result of the authors' interest in the general problem of artificial respiration, there n... View full abstract»

  • Pneumatic mechanisms for power circuit breakers

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s): 143

    PNEUMATIC OPERATION of power circuit breakers, which started before 1900, was used very little until the last decade. The increasing energy required for closing circuit breakers of higher and higher rating, and the demand for quicker closing and reclosing, enhanced the advantages of the pneumatic mechanism and led to its present predominance in the operation of large power circuit breakers. Experi... View full abstract»

    IN ANALYZING the relaying techniques involved in this subject, as distinct from the carrier tools available, we find that there are three recognized principles of carrier relaying, namely: 1. transferred signals, 2. phase comparison, and 3. directional comparison. Any of these principles must be applied with attention to the local conditions under which it must function. By inattention to detail d... View full abstract»

    TWO MAGNETIC UNITS A and B, Figure 1, are used as saturable reactors, and the load consists of inductance LL and resistance RL. The gate current iG, flowing through the gate windings X1 to X2, is discontinuous and flows in rectangular pulses whose amplitude is the same as that of the load current. Thus the average value of the load current IL is larger t... View full abstract»

    ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD from the surface of an energized cable is of great importance due to the increasing use of semiconductive jackets. Data were obtained showing the amount of current flowing to ground over a range of “body contact” resistances for nonshielded, metallic-shielded, and “semiconductive” jacketed rubber-insulated cables operating at various voltage levels...
