    The theory of transients arising from the sudden application of a sinusoidal potential is presented in this paper, for the distortionless transmission line. The solution is given in the form of a series of damped sinusoidal traveling waves, the reflections diminishing progressively until the steady state is reached. Oscillographic tests on an artificial line containing lumped parameters are shown ... View full abstract»

    Surge protection and open-circuit protection of current transformers may be obtained by the application of shunts in which the material known as “thyrite,” and which has a negative resistance characteristic, is used. The surge protector is connected across the current transformer primary, and the open-circuit protector across the secondary. Voltages across the current transformer win... View full abstract»
