  • Ten founding fathers of the electrical science: II. Otto von Guericke: And the first electric machine

    Publication Year: 1954, Page(s):396 - 397
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (763 KB)

    Otto von Guericke constructed the first electric machine—an electrostatic generator—by means of which he generated the first visible and audible electric discharges. With the new machine he observed the behavior of the electric charge along the electrical body, and took the first step in the ever-extending process of electric transmission of power.

  • Analyzing rotating machinery by network Theory — I

    Publication Year: 1954, Page(s): 418
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (279 KB)

    STATIC NETWORK THEORY can be extended to the analysis of rotating machinery to obtain the present concepts in machine analysis and, at the same time, develop the precision and procedures necessary to analyze more complex problems. It is believed that the unity, the fundamental characteristics of the procedures, and the concept of a transformation of variable involved in this extension lead to a cl... View full abstract»

  • Unbalance of single circuit lines

    Publication Year: 1954, Page(s): 420
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (252 KB)

    IN RECENT YEARS, many new overhead lines have been built without transpositions in the individual line section and experience has indicated that transpositions are rarely necessary. The elimination of transposition structures leads to geometrical unsymmetry of the phases along the line section, and consequently to small electrostatic and electromagnetic unbalances. In this study are investigated c... View full abstract»

  • A new milestone in circuit-breaker interrupting capacity 25 million kva at 330 kv

    Publication Year: 1954, Page(s):421 - 426
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1405 KB)

    With the tremendous loads considered for 330-kv lines, circuit breakers functioning at this voltage are needed with 2,000 amperes continuous current capacity and an interrupting rating of 25 million kva. The description of a breaker's new design, permitting the full interrupting rating to be demonstrated with present test facilities, and its assembly demonstrate how designers and engineers have so...

    THE FIRST INSTALLATION of the Magamp regulator and excitation system on a turbine generator was placed in service in the Springdale Station of the West Penn Power Company on April 1, 1953. The machine to which it was applied is a 50,000-kw 3,600-rpm hydrogen-cooled topping unit. Performance tests were conducted on the unit on July 19, 1953. The purpose of this digest is to present the operating ex... View full abstract»

    LARGE BANKS of high-voltage capacitors are being used to an increasing extent for voltage regulation and reactive power generation. Recent experience switching 30,000 reactive kilovolt-amperes in two parallel banks at 115 kv on the Bonneville Power System has indicated the special nature of the switching problems associated with the use of oil circuit breakers for energizing and de-energizing such...

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1027 KB)

    The measurement of currents at the higher frequencies is made difficult by the increased inductances and capacitances inherent in measuring equipment used for low-frequency alternating currents. Here are presented the theory, construction, and performance of a wide-frequency-range ammeter with excellent characteristics in the vhf band. View full abstract»

    This completely supercharged generator takes full advantage of increased gas pressures and has virtually no load limit because of temperatures. Although both simpler and more rugged than its partially supercharged predecessor, at the same time it permits the user to effect substantial savings in power plant space and costs.

  • Analyzer interconnections for power swing curves

    Publication Year: 1954, Page(s): 441
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (252 KB)

    THE CALCULATION of power-system swing curves generally is performed by using one of several point-by-point techniques in conjunction with an a-c network analyzer. The technique is well known and while greatly simplified by use of the network analyzer is still laborious and time-consuming. At least one analogue for the automatic and continuous determination of swing curves has been devised and seve... View full abstract»
