  • The municipally-operated electrical utilities of Western Canada

    Publication Year: 1916, Page(s):289 - 343
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5285 KB)

    The paper discusses a number of public utilities in various cities in Western Canada where practically all public utilities are municipally owned and operated. The characteristics of these cities are reviewed and a brief outline of equipments of the various plants is given. The costs and methods of financing these utilities are discussed at considerable length and the charges for various services ... View full abstract»

  • Iron losses in direct-current machines

    Publication Year: 1916, Page(s):345 - 370
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2576 KB)

    The term iron loss, as used in connection with rotating machinery, is shown to cover a large number of losses, some of which actually do not lie in the iron itself. The term core loss should be used except when the losses are actually located in the iron itself. It is shown that no great accuracy is practicable in the calculation of the actual iron losses, except in special instances, due to the f... View full abstract»

  • The influence of frequency of alternating or infrequently reversed current on electrolytic corrosion

    Publication Year: 1916, Page(s):371 - 397
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2610 KB)

    This paper describes experimental work done to determine the coefficient of corrosion of iron and lead in soil with varying frequencies of alternating or reversed current with 60 cycles per second as the highest frequency and a two-week period as lowest — some d-c. tests being made as a check on the methods. The results show (1), that a decrease of corrosion occurs with an increase in frequ... View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “class rates for light and power systems or territories” (Baum), Deer Park, Md., July 2, 1915. (see proceedings for April, 1915 and January, 1916)

    F. G. Baum (by letter): None of those who discussed the paper made any argument that my method of analysis is not correct but some question the advisability of adopting such a system. This is natural, and extreme caution should be used in adopting any plan, and no plan should be adopted that does not depend for its facts on the actual records of operation of the company in the particular territory...

  • Discussion on “report by the joint committee on inductive interference,” San Francisco, Cal., Seft. 17, 1915

    Since the presentation of our report at the Spokane convention a year ago, the principal experimental work has been conducted at San Fernando, about twenty miles north of Los Angeles. Here the committee had completely at its disposal, for several months, a thirty-seven mile power circuit and private telephone circuit of the Pacific Light and Power Corporation, also several banks of transformers, l...

  • Discussion on “a large electric hoist” (Sykes), San Francisco, Cal., Sept. 17, 1915. (see proceedings for August, 1915)

    Publication Year: 1916, Page(s):414 - 419
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (847 KB)

    Graham Bright: One remarkable thing about the hoist described in Mr. Sykes' paper is that although it is much larger than anything heretofore built in this country, the actual performances obtained in operation are strikingly close to the guaranteed values given by the manufacturer. This shows clearly that the art of hoisting and hoist calculations are being more thoroughly understood and the perf... View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “the modern electric mine locomotive,” (Bright), San Francisco, Cal., Sept. 17, 1915. (see proceedings for August, 1915)

    Wilfred Sykes: The increasing size of mine locomotives and consequently the increased power of the individual units makes it necessary, if a reasonable design is to be made, to find some way of removing the heat from the motor. The use of blowers is a very simple method and is found on all locomotive designs for main line electrification. That increased capacity can be obtained in this way is of c... View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “harmonics in transformer magnetizing currents,” (Peters) San Francisco, Cal., Sept. 17, 1915. (see proceedings for August, 1915)

    D. I. Cone: In the paper by Mr. Peters there is discussed the case of a bank of receiving transformers supplied over a line energized by another bank. It is stated that if the line sides of the banks are connected in star and their neutrals grounded, a path is furnished for third harmonic currents, in phase in the three line-wires.

    Harris J. Ryan: In cases I and II: The author says that the abnormal condition “is explainable by a periodically reversing leg,” yet there is nothing in the paper nor in common knowledge to enable one to understand just what this “leg” is and what cause made it reverse. The author does not state for case III whether the abnormal condition was temporary or stable, a matt... View full abstract»
