    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1609 KB)  

    Differences between electric equipment requirements of pumped storage and conventional hydroelectric plants lie chiefly in starting techniques, ratings, and additional control and protective features for the pumping mode of operation. Special consideration is also needed in the design of the generator-motor, the excitation system, and the relaying equipment View full abstract»

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1895 KB)  

    Difficulties encountered in providing an adjustable, regulated d-c supply for adjustable-frequency inverters have led to the use of complex compensating and regulating circuitry. However, a high-power d-c/d-c semiconductor inverter, which operates from an unregulated d-c supply, can regulate faster than the highest-frequency ripple current imposed by the inverter and fulfills all the requirements of an inverter power supply View full abstract»

  • Bare steel structures — A new concept

    Publication Year: 1963 , Page(s): 666 - 672
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (3234 KB)  

    Certain high-strength low-alloy steels form a self-protecting oxide film that permits their exposure to the atmosphere in the bare or uncoated condition. These steels are finding applications ranging from transmission towers to distribution transformers on electric power systems. A detailed discussion is presented of how one of these steels can be used to advantage for outside structures, particularly in those areas where maintenance costs of galvanized and painted structures are high View full abstract»

    Sheet and foil windings are finding increasing use in apparatus ranging in size from small automotive components to medium-sized power transformers. The growing popularity of such windings lies in certain electrical and mechanical advantages over conventional helically wound coils. In addition, sheet conductor material can now be economically produced with a high degree of dimensional accuracy, with smooth and burr-free edges, and free to a high degree from dirt and metallic dust particles View full abstract»

  • New aspects of buried urban telephone distribution

    Publication Year: 1963 , Page(s): 677 - 683
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (4256 KB)  

    High cost, formerly a major deterrent to buried telephone plant, has become less so, following post-war development of tools and materials such as PIC cable. Increasing public intolerance of aerial plant, in the interest of appearance, points to the universal use of underground systems by 1970. Tools, materials, and methods used to bury telephone plant economically are described View full abstract»

    As the trend toward higher voltages, use of large conductors, multiple conductors, and longer spans continues, the need for a better insulating element in suspension insulators than the currently used porcelain is becoming apparent. A modified epoxy-type polymer with a fiber-glass core used in the design of a developmental suspension insulator is described View full abstract»

    Current interest in man-machine systems and communication has stimulated efforts to explore information transfer at the man-machine interface. The myoelectric effect, a result of muscle cell contraction, is currently under investigation. The exploitation of an artifically derived myoelectric code shows promise as an aid to the solution of many problems in this area View full abstract»

    Present mechanical stylus equipment used by radio engineers and scientists for recording signal traces (like those shown on an oscilloscope) record oscillations at the rate of about 100 per second. By motion picture photography they can record higher frequencies on paper, but the process is expensive and time consuming. View full abstract»

    Off the coast of Norway in one of the great fishing areas facing the North Sea, the island of R&oslah;st with its 800 inhabitants now anticipates a new way of life. On July 9 last, a mood of celebration prevailed on the island; school children carried balloons to the docks, and the people gathered to welcome the cable ship Stanelco, out of Oslo, carrying a submarine high-tension cable to link R&oslah;st to the mainland by bringing to the fisherman population inexpensive electricity, and thus opening the doors to industry.

  • Physicists probe magnetic effect in metals

    Publication Year: 1963 , Page(s): 693 - 694
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1330 KB)  

    Two physicists at Western Reserve University have reported the discovery of a new magnetic effect in metals, predicted by one of them only six weeks earlier. The new effect is the periodic variation in the length of a metal crystal at very low temperatures, as an applied magnetic field is gradually changed. Dr. B. S. Chandrasekhar, professor of physics, predicted on purely theoretical grounds the possibility of observing the effect, in a note published in the August 15 issue of Physics Letters. The experiment was performed by Dr. Ben A. Green, Jr., assistant professor of physics and Dr. Chandrasekhar several weeks later in the John Schoff Millis Science Center at Western Reserve University, and the first observation of the effect was reported by them in the October 1 issue of Physical Review Letters, a journal published by The American Physical Society.

  • Pulsed gas laser yields high power

    Publication Year: 1963 , Page(s): 694
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (313 KB)  

    Peak powers of over 50 watts have been achieved with a new pulsed gas laser at Martin-Orlando research laboratories, Baltimore, Md., and outputs in the kilowatt range may be imminent. The achievement of such output levels brings the gas laser from a low-power laboratory device into the intermediate power range with practical use as a system component for auto-tracking optical radars, reconnaissance systems, and missile guidance application. The Martin research effort is aimed at the development of optical radar. View full abstract»

    A 70-kmc traveling-wave maser that uses a superconducting magnet for the applied field is being developed by the Westinghouse Electric Corp. The superconducting magnet, now in use, provides the high-field uniformity that is important to high-gain maser operation of broad bandwidth, high frequency and high sensitivity. The new maser device, with a pump frequency of 118 kmc, will be used to investigate advanced radiometers, radar, and communications equipment. View full abstract»
