  • Are transformer stabilizing windings necessary?

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s): 890
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (368 KB)

    FOR MANY YEARS it has been common practice to include a Δ-connected stabilizing winding in Y-Y-connected transformers and Y-connected autotrans-formers. This applies to 3-phase units of all types of core construction as well as 3-phase banks of single-phase units. The practice has been followed so closely for such a long time that it is generally taken for granted that the stabilizing windi... View full abstract»

    In this era of shrinking distances, it may be hard to realize that slightly more than a century ago it took weeks to communicate between the European and American continents. In one giant leap, electrical technology all but annihilated time and distance, bringing both continents within a few seconds' reach of each other. This is the story of that epoch-making achievement. It introduces the contrib... View full abstract»

  • Control of reversible induction motor drives

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s): 905

    DURING the past several years, saturable reactors and self-saturating magnetic amplifiers have found increasing application for the control of reversing induction motor drives for intermittent slow-speed duty. The restriction to intermittent duty is imposed by the low motor efficiency at slow speed. With speed feedback, which is usually included, the reactor-controlled induction motor possesses ad...

  • Dynamic response of arcs in various gases

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2816 KB)

    THE ELECTRICAL characteristics of an arc drawn upon separating the contacts of a circuit interrupter can be classified as the static, or steady-state, and the dynamic characteristic. Both are involved in the circuit interrupting process, but of the two the dynamic characteristic is generally most important. The latter is essentially involved in the transition of the arc from a conductor to an insu... View full abstract»

    A number of digital computer programs have recently come into use for solving problems concerned with load flow, short circuit, and transient stability studies. The tremendous power of large-scale digital computers should soon make possible the solution of very difficult utility problems which cannot be solved on analog-type computers. View full abstract»

  • Reversible polarity D-C power amplifier

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s): 917
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (574 KB)

    MAJOR PROBLEMS in devising reversible polarity direct current magnetic amplifiers are poor efficiency and large voltage regulation. Conventional reversible polarity circuits have a maximum theoretical efficiency of 50 per cent as compared to 100 per cent for the circuit under consideration. The increase in efficiency is accomplished by using switched transistors in conjunction with magnetic amplif... View full abstract»

  • Reliability of transformers for electronic applications

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):918 - 920

    Because failure of a transformer in electronic equipment generally results in complete failure of its circuit, reliability of this important component is essential. A program for achieving reliability of electronic transformers throughout every step of their design and production is proposed. View full abstract»

    STEADILY DECREASING peak-load power factor has amplified the problem of providing a supply for the ever-increasing reactive load on the Baltimore Gas and Electric Company system. The location of new generation in more remote areas has increased the attractiveness of static capacitors located near the load for reactive supply. However, in order to avoid excessive voltage and generator instability a... View full abstract»
