    IN RECENT YEARS, the job of managing a large industrial organization has become an increasingly complex and taxing assignment. Technological advances have called for a broad variety of specialized skills. The growth of the labor movement and the increasing responsibilities of management to Government, to employees, and to the public, have placed many relatively new burdens on the business executiv...

    A PARTNER in a management consulting firm suggests that the embryo of a new industrial company is composed of a good salesman who has become dissatisfied with the scope of his activity and an able foreman whom he selects as superintendent. These two men start a new company. This is basically a sound beginning, provided that there is a product, process, or service available which can be marketed at... View full abstract»

    The considerable difference between the predicted flashover rate as calculated by the AIEE method and the actual flashover rate on the OVEC system over a 2-year period has forced a re-evaluation of present procedures for estimating lightning flashovers on transmission lines. Data and preliminary conclusions are set forth based on the first year of the field investigation. View full abstract»

    JOHN K. HODNETTE, who was born and spent his early years on a farm in Alabama, used to recall this little bit of folk lore: On hot days, if you looked out over the fields of that southern farm through the rising heat waves and saw something moving, it was generally a tree stump–not a man.

    I THANK YOU, Walter, for all those kind and rather embarrassing words in my praise. I don't believe half of what you said, but I am comforted by the well-known fact that praise never hurts anyone–so long as you don't inhale. View full abstract»

    AS IN THE CASE of other utilities located in densely populated areas, the Philadelphia Electric Company is faced with serious right-of-way problems. Because a major portion of the transmission and distribution plant is in the vicinity of public highways, a particular challenge is presented by the problems associated with many new bridges over railroads, streets, and depressed highways. In the 5-ye... View full abstract»

  • Corona-level scanning of high-voltage power cables

    Publication Year: 1958, Page(s): 236

    AN APPARATUS has been developed for the purpose of detecting and locating the presence of small voids or air pockets in rubber or plastic cable insulation. This is especially important in cases where the operating voltage of the cable is high enough to ionize the gas in these void spaces, because continued ionization may eventually erode or burn its way through the insulation, and result in cable ...

    THE NATION-WIDE SWITCHING of intertoll trunks by switching machines instead of manual interconnection at toll switchboards requires many new and improved transmission circuits and equipment arrangements associated with the new switching systems at selected major switching centers. The assurance of satisfactory transmission performance on a high percentage of interconnections requires the establish... View full abstract»
