    The application of tensor analysis to the problems of electrical engineering results in a great simplification of the mathematics involved in such a complicated system as that of a rotating machine, for tensor analysis provides the ability to generalize from simple individual cases to complicated groups and systems. Originally, tensor analysis was developed as a tool in advanced geometrical analysis, but has since found extensive applications in other fields. The purpose of this paper is to point out the value of tensors, and to serve as an introduction to further study. View full abstract»

    This paper treats in something of an elementary fashion some of the problems encountered in the practical application of the resistance welding circuit, considering especially the electrical constants and variables involved. The lack of available literature on this subject inspired the preparation of this paper. View full abstract»

  • An electronic regulator for D-C generators

    A voltage regulator using grid-controlled arc-discharge tubes as rectifiers under the control of a diode to supply field current for d-c generators is described in this paper. The regulator has demonstrated an over-all sensitivity of plus or minus 0. 5 per cent with a supply voltage change of 10 per cent, and is comparable in cost to the usual electromagnetic regulators, but requires an a-c supply.

  • Dyadic Algebra applied to 3 phase circuits

    Publication Year: 1936 , Page(s): 876 - 882
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1802 KB)  

    This paper discusses and brings together the basic principles and relations necessary for the practical solution of problems involving 3 phase networks by the dyadic algebra developed by Gibbs. Emphasis is placed more on the utility of the method and the similarity between the new relations and those already well established for single phase circuits than on mathematical details of deduction or proof, which can be found elsewhere.
