    The opening article in the JOURNAL for November, 1927, gave an outline of the changes proposed for the publications of the A. I. E. E. and these changes were adopted by the Board of Directors at its meeting on December 16th, after a careful canvas of the situation by the Publication Committee. They are being put into effect as rapidly as possible and it is expected the new plans will be in full op... View full abstract»

    This paper is a general description of the interconnected power systems in the region surrounding and including Chicago as a center. The electrical energy generated in this region in 1926 was over 4,000,000,000 kw-hr. and the combined generating capacity of the three largest companies was 1,340,000 kw. The paper outlines important features of major stations and transmission and distribution system... View full abstract»

    This paper covers investigations made in undertaking the design of a rectifier for use as the B power supply for radio receivers. It determines the most satisfactory type of filter circuit and the appropriate values of inductance and capacitance to give a d-c. output delivered with the least practicable voltage drop and having no fluctuations of sufficient magnitude to interfere with the proper op...

    In this paper the comparatively recent discovery of generator instability is discussed. A method of testing synchronous machinery in the unstable as well as in the stable range is described. The results of tests performed on two machines is shown and discussed. The conclusion is drawn that the design of customary machines will have to be improved, synchronous condensers installed on many long line... View full abstract»

    At the end of the year 1926 the High-Voltage Laboratory of the Electrotechnical Institute in Leningrad undertook an experimental research in order to study the influence of internal vacua and ionization on the life duration of paper insulated high-voltage cables, as well as to clear up the conditions under which such vacua may occur. W. A. Del Mar3 drew attention to the importance of in... View full abstract»

    The general solution to the slightly damped network is expressed in terms of the undamped solution by means of series expansions. The first part of the paper gives a method for evaluating the complex roots of the determinantal equation, and the second part shows how the expansions of the first part may be correlated with the Heaviside formula to form the complete approximate solution. An example i... View full abstract»

  • The Boltzmann-Hopkinson principle of superposition as applied to dielectrics

    Publication Year: 1928, Page(s):41 - 43
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (903 KB)

    The principle of superposition, discussed first for dielectrics by Hopkinson, has been shown for a long time in experiment. However, its validity for the several theories which have been advanced for dielectric behavior has been shown in only a few cases. One of the exceptions is the important theory of Maxwell.2 This paper shows that the principle of superposition is a necessary conseq... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1692 KB)

    This paper described the telephone toll system in the region within a radius of about 50 mi. from Chicago. In this system have been established 21 toll centers at which are handled the toll traffic of their own exchanges and 95 other exchanges in the area. Descriptions are given of the toll plan and the toll plant, methods of handling toll calls, volume of traffic handled, etc. A most important co... View full abstract»
