    The 100,000-volt transmission lines of the Public Service Company of Colorado, which were completed in 1909, extended from the Shoshone hydro plant on the Colorado River across the Continental Divide to Denver and represent pioneering in high-voltage transmission at high altitudes. This combination of factors, coupled with a rapid expansion of the whole system in recent years, called for the satis... View full abstract»

    Principles to be followed in transmission-line construction in order to reduce damage from lightning are recommended in this paper. The major recommendations are as follows: (1) Keep transmission conductors low and arrange horizontally, (2) use ground wires, (3) use sufficient insulation but of a sufficiently low value near stations to protect apparatus, (4) install lightning arresters at the tran...

    Experience on high-voltage transmission lines has shown numerous failures of apparatus which have indicated a decided lack of coordination of the insulation strengths of the various parts of the transmission system. Apparatus offered by manufacturers for a given service shows wide variations in insulation values. Again the flashover and the breakdown values are not at present sufficiently standard...

  • Abridgment of utilization of lodgepole pine timber for poles

    Publication Year: 1928 , Page(s): 645 - 649
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1410 KB)  

    With an ever-increasing demand for poles used in the construction of power and communication lines new sources of supply must be developed from time to time. Along the Rocky Mountain Range are found large stands of various species of timber suitable for the production of poles and so far not utilized to any appreciable extent. This paper outlines briefly the selection of lodgepole pine timber for ... View full abstract»

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1279 KB)  

    This paper deals, in a general way, with the several systems of automatic block signaling, particularly the a-c. system, and the apparatus commonly used to insure continuity of power supply. It covers briefly the older phases of the subject and more specifically the later applications. The most modern system of continuous inductive train control, the code system, has required the development of fr... View full abstract»

  • Parallel resonance and anti-resonance

    There seems to be a certain amount of uncertainty among authors as to just what is a correct definition of resonance in a parallel circuit such as shown of Fig. 1. The most common definition is that resonance is that condition which makes the total reactance, or susceptance, equal to zero. This is the condition for unity power factor. In some definitions the further condition is added that at reso... View full abstract»

    In hydroelectric surveys it is difficult to fix the positions of the soundings when the survey ship is beyond the range of visibility of shore objects; the radio-acoustic method is designed to help in meeting this difficulty. Temporary shore stations are set up, each equipped with a microphone placed in the water in a known position and connected with an amplifier ashore through a cable; the ampli... View full abstract»

    It is a well-known fact that the electrical field in any hollow or cavity in a solid conductor is either zero or very nearly approaches zero. This follows directly from the inverse-square law. View full abstract»
