  • The story of the Institute budget a presentation of facts and figures

    The extent of the contribution that can be made by any organization such as the Institute is determined by the soundness of its business policies. The furtherance of its aims, to promote technological advancement and the best interests of its membership, is predicated upon its ability so to manage its affairs that it may foster uninterruptedly those activities that are consistent with the purposes for which it exists. It is important that its members be qualified technically, if advances in the electrical art are to be made, but it is just as important that the members have knowledge of the financial aspects of the Institute's affairs if they would be equally qualified to promote the well-being of the institution which concerns itself not only with technical matters, but also with the improvement of the professional status of those engaged in electrical engineering.

  • Scientific thought and social reconstruction

    Publication Year: 1934 , Page(s): 383 - 387
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1909 KB)  

    Scientific men cannot stand aside and ignore the vast political and social experiments being conducted during the present period of accelerated social change. It is not necessary or even desirable, however, that professional scientific men abandon their laboratories and attempt to deal with executive problems; but it is necessary that they expound insistently the nature of scientific thought and study its application to social and political problems. Engineers and scientists are urged to deal with problems of social reconstruction as they deal with other problems, pinning their faith on those methods of reasoning that have proved so successful in analyzing all types of natural phenomena.

  • Electric discharges in gases — II: Ions in dense gases

    Publication Year: 1934 , Page(s): 388 - 395
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1958 KB)  

    This article is a review of some of the established facts and accepted theories pertaining to the behavior of ions in dense gases, supplementing the article that appeared in last month's issue reviewing current knowledge concerning ionization and excitation, and preparing the way for next month's article which will discuss various types of electric discharges in the light of the basic processes set forth in this and the preceding article. This is the fourth of a series of special articles developed under the sponsorship of the A.I.E.E. committee on education, and the second of three devoted to the major divisions of the general subject of electric discharges in gases. Full details concerning this series of articles are given on p. 238 of ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING for February 1934. View full abstract»

    Social advantages and disadvantages of the engineering-scientific approach to civilization are discussed in this article, which includes full text of an address delivered at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science held in Boston, Mass., December 8, 1933. The engineer is urged to apply the precision of his thinking and his honesty in facing facts to the more complex situations that concern living organisms and our social life. View full abstract»

  • Experiments in fatal electric shock

    In the experiments reported here the authors have studied the relations involved in the maximal effect of electric shock, which is death. These experiments were conducted on rats; the relations of duration, current intensity, and frequency were studied. The results afford an explanation of the common observation that death from high voltage usually is cardiac in origin, and from low voltage respiratory in origin. View full abstract»

  • Actions on electric and magnetic units

    The following authorized statement of the actions taken at the Paris meeting of the committee on electric and magnetic magnitudes and units of the International Electrotechnical Commission, prepared by Dr. A. E. Kennelly, chairman of the E.M.M.U. committee, is based upon the minutes of the meeting, as circulated among the various I.E.C. national committees. This statement, distributed by the I.E.C. General Secretariat in London, is, however, necessarily subsidiary to the official minutes (I.E.C. document R.M. 105) which should be consulted by those particularly interested. View full abstract»

  • Shunt resistors for reactors — II

    Publication Year: 1934 , Page(s): 411 - 418
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (3179 KB)  

    Shunt resistors applied to current limiting reactors used on large electric power systems function to reduce voltages caused by reflections and oscillations, to provide an avenue of escape for bus disturbances, and to reduce the voltages across the reactors. To be suitable for this purpose, a resistor must have an inverse characteristic such that its resistance during short circuits is many times that during transient conditions. The material known to the trade as “thyrite” fulfills these requirements admirably. A method of calculating the effects of such a resistor, with results given in convenient curve form, is presented in this paper. View full abstract»

  • Transients in magnetic systems

    Publication Year: 1934 , Page(s): 418 - 425
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1226 KB)  

    In the past, the solution of the transients in magnetic systems with solid cores has been carried out by assuming that the radial distribution of flux in other portions of the magnetic circuit is the same as in the solid portion. This paper presents a more precise mathematical analysis, the purpose of which is to determine the limits for which the foregoing assumption applies, and also to determine the nature of the phenomena for other cases in which that assumption is not permissible.

    This paper, Part II of a group on theory of primary electric power distribution networks, deals with short-circuit and relay problems. Data showing the distribution of fault currents for both 3-phase and ground faults is presented, and a rational method of relaying based upon that data is discussed and analyzed. View full abstract»

  • The theory of incremental rates and their practical Application to load division — Part I

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (2969 KB)  

    The calculation of the most economical division of load between generating units and power plants is of considerable importance on large inter-connected systems. The most complete analysis of the subject of load division published to date is contained in the present paper, which shows that the method of incremental rates gives the division of load which is the most economical. Both the basic theory and the practical application of the method are contained in this paper. An outline is given in the accompanying table of contents. View full abstract»

  • Discussions of A.I.E.E. papers — As recommended for publication by technical committees

    Publication Year: 1934 , Page(s): 446 - 452

    ON this and the following pages appear those discussions of A.I.E.E. winter convention papers that were received in complete and acceptable form at Institute headquarters up to Feb. 5, and subsequently reviewed by the various technical committees and recommended for publication. Discussions received subsequent to Feb. 5 and prior to March 1 are scheduled for publication in the April issue, subject to the recommendations of technical reviewers. It appears that these 2 groups will account for the bulk of the total discussion of the winter convention papers as published in the Aug., Nov., and Dec. 1933, and the Jan. 1934 issues of Electrical Engineering. However, discussions received after March 1 will be given the same attention as those received earlier, and will be judged on the same basis for possible publication. View full abstract»
