  • Liquid dielectrics in an electric field

    Publication Year: 1959 , Page(s): 1158
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (430 KB)  

    STUDIES of pure liquid dielectrics under the influence of relatively intense electric fields reveal a phenomenon of mass transfer. Two variations of liquid displacement are possible. One is called cross-field displacement. It may be produced by partially immersing two rod-like electrodes in a liquid dielectric. The other is called co-field displacement. This type of mass transfer may be produced b... View full abstract»

  • Load characteristics of a smelting furnace

    Publication Year: 1959 , Page(s): 1159
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (451 KB)  

    SUBMERGED arc furnaces have been in commercial operation for more than 50 years. However, the literature tells little about what they require from the supplier of the electric energy or what effects they have on the supply system. Information follows on the electrical performance of such a furnace. View full abstract»

    TO UTILIZE the new materials effectively as they become available, it is necessary that searching and severe representative tests be used and the results compared to those for existing materials. From this agreement, it is possible to proceed confidently in the use of these evaluated materials. It is then possible to match more exactly an insulation system to a proposed use. Thus, the user benefit... View full abstract»

  • Subtransient reactances of synchronous machines

    Publication Year: 1959 , Page(s): 1183
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (471 KB)  

    THE THEORETICAL approach so far made in the development of formulas for the direct- and the quadrature-axis subtransient reactances is based on either proportioning the current in the pole-tip bar, depending on its permeance, or evolving an equivalent damper winding on the assumption of sinusoidal distribution of damper currents. Both these methods have their limitations when applied to the case o... View full abstract»

  • Effect of elevated temperature on flash-welded aluminum — Copper joints

    Publication Year: 1959 , Page(s): 1190 - 1194

    As a result of improved techniques, the quality of flash-welded joints between aluminum and copper has been greatly improved so that they can now be made commercially. To evaluate these techniques, tests were made on 500 joints and the effects of heating on tensile strength, ductility, resistance to impact, and electrical resistance were determined.

  • Induction motors with permanent magnet excitation

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (389 KB)  

    INDUCTION MOTORS have been built in Germany with a free running member carrying d-c excitation. They had excellent characteristics, including 100% power factor. Permanent magnets have been substituted for d-c excited poles in magnetos and in synchronous motors with good results. Why not, one may ask, substitute them for the d-c free running member of the German motor? Assuming this could be done, ... View full abstract»

  • Utilities radio regulation and technical advances

    Publication Year: 1959 , Page(s): 1196 - 1199
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1062 KB)  

    Because the radio spectrum is one of our most valuable “natural resources,” the necessity for government regulation is obvious. Certain groups of radio users have formed advisory committees to assist the regulatory bodies in establishing suitable rules. This article discusses some of the interrelationships between these groups in the light of today's technical advances. View full abstract»
