    1936 is now history. Whatever we have accomplished, or failed to accomplish, is written into the records and we cannot change it. The engineer is interested in history as a guide to the future, but what most intensely interests him is that which he may accomplish in the future. Every keen-minded member of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers is greatly interested in the future accomplishments of the organization. View full abstract»

    The characteristics of engineering that should give the engineer a stronger sense of economic and social responsibility than is sometimes felt by those in other professions are discussed in this article, which suggests that an engineering approach should be made to economic problems.

    Switchboards for the power plant at Boulder Dam are unusual not alone for their size, but also for the combination in one plant of switchboard designs and methods that have been used individually but seldom together. The plan of the power plant and the switchboards and control equipment are described in this paper. View full abstract»

    Control of water level according to a predetermined cycle and its automatic recording in a model of the Cape Cod Canal have been accomplished by electrical means which depend for operation upon the capacitances between the surface of the water and metal plates suspended above the water. The theory of operation and the apparatus are described in this paper. View full abstract»

  • Lightning currents in 132-kv lines

    Data pertaining to lightning currents actually measured in tower structures, counterpoises, and ground wires on 132-kv lines during 1933–36 are presented in this paper. It is concluded that stroke currents rarely exceed 150,000 amperes, although 220,000 amperes has been indicated, and that currents as high as 60,000 amperes measured in the overhead ground wires indicate the necessity of adequate shielding of the line at station entrances.

  • Tooth-frequency eddy-current loss

    Page(s): 253 - 256
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (2089 KB)  

    A method of recording, by means of an oscillograph, the eddy currents in various parts of the cross section of a squirrel-cage-rotor bar is presented in this paper. From such records the magnitude of the power loss caused by eddy currents, and its variation with load, may be determined. A series of tests of this nature has been made; the results, which the author believes to be correct in general, show that the change of eddy-current loss with load is negligible, thus simplifying the determination of the composite stray-load loss of a squirrel-cage induction motor.

  • Reactance of end connections

    Use of image conductors in iron, of Rayleigh insulating partitions, and of images of conductors in these partitions is shown in this paper to afford one possible line of attack on the problem of the reactance of the end connections of electrical machinery. The use of 2 other methods to reduce the field in the end zone to a basis where Ampere's equation may be correctly applied is also suggested. View full abstract»
