    The one-hundredth birthday of the state of Texas has been the occasion for the construction of a great exposition at Dallas. The success of such an exposition is dependent upon the electrical illumination, power, sound equipment, and signal and communication systems. This paper outlines the electrical features of the Dallas exposition. View full abstract»

  • Studies of stability of cable insulation

    Publication Year: 1936, Page(s):1074 - 1082
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3814 KB)

    In connection with recent developments of new types of underground cables for high voltages, questions have been raised concerning the stability in service of impregnated paper insulation of the ordinary type. In addition to giving new data on the only reliable test method found for predetermining this stability — accelerated aging tests — this paper gives information on the mechanis...

  • Automatic boosters on distribution circuits

    Publication Year: 1936, Page(s):1083 - 1096

    Development of automatic voltage regulating equipment for installation on 4 kv distribution circuits at points remote from the substation has made possible a reduction in the cost of distribution by loading circuits to their economic carrying capacities unhampered by the limitation of voltage regulation. Investigation indicates 2 rules governing the application of booster regulators, and compariso... View full abstract»

  • A new thermal fuse for network protectors

    Publication Year: 1936, Page(s):1096 - 1099

    Fuses made of copper that have been used as additional protection for transformers in low voltage networks in the event that the network protector should fail to operate may blow too quickly on brief overloads, and fail to blow on long-sustained overloads of lesser magnitude. By the combination of a fusible alloy of low melting point and copper blocks that delay the rate of temperature rise the fu... View full abstract»

    Obviously it is impossible to prophesy accurately what will happen in any phase of human activity. In the field of lighting, however, it is fairly safe to make some predictions based upon the following hypothesis: Throughout the world there are certain organizations and establishments which are unusually progressive, which do things before the ideas involved have been accepted generally. A study, ... View full abstract»

  • Progress in the production and application of light

    Publication Year: 1936, Page(s):1111 - 1120
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2540 KB)

    A review of progress in illumination during the past 4 years has been prepared by the AIEE committee on production and application of light, and is presented here. This report deals primarily with new types and forms of light sources and improvements in old ones. Some examples of modern applications of these new light sources are discussed in 2 other papers in this issue: ȁ... View full abstract»

  • Carrier relaying and rapid reclosing at 110 kv

    Publication Year: 1936, Page(s):1120 - 1129
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3396 KB)

    This paper describes an application of carrier-current relaying combined with rapid reclosure of circuit breakers by means of which the continuity of service to a large industrial load supplied by a long single-circuit line was improved. A 110-kv line 120 miles long, forming part of an interconnected loop, has been equipped in this way to clear faults and restore service in approximately one secon... View full abstract»
