    A convention which made Institute history was held in Worcester, Mass., early in June. This was the first convention held by a geographical district of the Institute. Much credit must be given to the officers and sections of the district, District No. 1, for their courage in undertaking such a meeting with no precedent for guidance, and they are to be complimented also on the excellent way in whic...

    This paper deals with the development of a constant speed a-c. motor for application to single-phase current. A description is given of the derivation of this new type of motor from the plain repulsion motor. The novel feature lies in the armature which consists of a combination of three elements, namely: a commutated winding, a squirrel cage of high reactance, and a commutating device consisting ...

    The purpose of this paper is to state briefly the use of voltage regulators and reactors in transmission and distribution systems and to mention operating requirements which might be best met by the use of saturated-core type regulators or reactors. The saturated-core type regulator and reactor consists of an iron core with two sets of coils. One set of coils is connected to a d-c. circuit and the... View full abstract»

    The development of a distribution system is largely determined by the load density and Us rate of change. The following is a discussion of these factors and their influence on the Chicago distribution system: The d-c. system which supplies the central part of the city includes an area of about one sq. mi. in which the load is expected to reach 200,000 kw. in 20 years. This would economically requi... View full abstract»

  • New type of high-tension network: An interconnecting system for the supply of electric power over large areas

    Publication Year: 1924, Page(s):610 - 618
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1908 KB)

    The purpose of the paper is to present for consideration a new method of interconnecting sources of power and load centers in a large district with a well developed and well distributed load. The central idea is the superposition of a high tension network of single-circuit lines over the whole district for the purpose of supplying a medium in which current may flow in any general direction as chan...

    ELECTRICALLY driven mine hoists have at last come into their own. For many years manufacturers labored with prospective buyers with little results. Long and laborious calculations were made, ratings determined with great accuracy, detailed specifications drawn and presented to the customer. He usually purchased a steam hoist. The good judgment of such a decision could hardly be questioned. The ste... View full abstract»

  • Automatic substations for supplying 1500 volts: Direct current to Suburban railways

    Publication Year: 1924, Page(s):622 - 626

    Review of the Subject — The engineer in applying automatic substations to an existing electrified traction property is often forced to make the most of a poorly designed or antiquated distribution system. By comparison, the problem of designing the distribution system for the electrification of a steam railroad is often very simple. The choice of proper converting equipment is perhaps not s...

  • Insulation tests of transformers as influenced by time and frequency

    Publication Year: 1924, Page(s):627 - 633
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1869 KB)

    Many transformers are now being designed for service with one end of the high-voltage winding solidly grounded. These transformers require an over potential test by induced voltage of either 2.73 or 8.46 times their normal line voltage above ground plus 1000 volts. These tests must be made at more than normal frequency, to avoid too high a flux density in the core, and also to reduce the power req... View full abstract»

    The present trend to interconnection and the installation of large capacity stations, with the changing character of city load, make relief of the operating crew of a system of the greatest importance. This can best be done by the use of automatically controlled substations in the various types of service. Equipment for each class of service is in successful operation showing great dependability a... View full abstract»

    The paper takes up the physical features having deciding influence on design and construction of hydroelectric plants. It describes the mountain system of the region, the precipitation, the runoff, the streams suitable for power development, and the major characteristics of the development; then takes up a little more in detail the structural features, such as reservoirs and diversion dams, the co...

  • Tooth pulsation in rotating machines

    1. An experimental method is presented of checking the magnitude of flux pulsations in the teeth of rotating machines where both members are slotted. The method consists in using metallic electrodes shaped like the teeth of a machine and an electrolyte or mercury to represent the air. Voltage is applied between the two members and the current through the tooth under consideration is measured. The ... View full abstract»

    I can tell you in words of one syllable our experience on the Norfolk and Western. Our electrification problem is rather different from the problem of most of the other lines. When we first undertook electrification we were faced with the problem of handling about nine hundred cars in each direction over very heavy grades, and in very heavy tonnage, and our first thought was to investigate electri...

    The southern portion of the Pacific Coast is comparatively free from lightning disturbances and the number of such disturbances, as compared with the number of lightning storms in other sections of the United States, is quite small. However, the expansion of the high voltage transmission network with the installation of many additional substations and further expansion of distribution systems has ... View full abstract»

    To the man who sees in the promotion of good lighting an opportunity for service, this article is nothing short of an inspiration; to him who is satisfied to supply merely what his customer asks for, regardless of its adequacy, it sounds a warning. The following article formed the editorial feature of Electrical World for September 29th, 1923, and is printed by permission. View full abstract»
