  • High-voltage D-C. railway practise

    Publication Year: 1916, Page(s):437 - 450
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1631 KB)

    During the past 10 years, the operation of electric railways at d-c. voltages of 1200 and 1500 has become common and higher voltages have been shown to be practicable. The paper deals first with the fundamental differences in apparatus for 1200 or 1500 volts as compared with the former 600-volt standards and indicates the apparent tendency of general practise with regard to a number of alternative...

  • Effect of barometric pressure on temperature rise of self-cooled stationary induction apparatus

    Publication Year: 1916, Page(s):451 - 478
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3739 KB)

    The paper falls logically into three divisions: (1) A general review of the principal laws of the dissipation of heat, — radiation, conduction and convection. (2) the development of a simple formula for the effect of altitude on the cooling of surfaces of different shapes, and (3) a general discussion of the method of conducting experimental observations at different altitudes, on three dif...

  • Discussion on “calculation of sudden short-circuit phenomena of alternators,” (Diamant), San Francisco, Cal., Sept. 17, 1915. (see proceedings for September, 1915)

    F. D. Newbury: It is really surprising, as the author points out, how little thorough work has been done by American engineers on this subject. While Boucherot's paper was presented in 1911, in 1912 and even in 1913 the practise of engineers in this country was decidedly loose; for example, there was no distinction made between the maximum possible short-circuit current or the value of short-circu...

  • Discussion on “the repulsion-start induction motor” (Hamilton), St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 19, 1915. (see proceedings for October, 1915)

    H. Weichsel: The design methods given by Mr. Hamilton can, according to my judgment, in some cases be shortened without interfering with the accuracy of the results. In some other cases it is possible to obtain somewhat more accurate results, without increasing noticeably the time required for the calculation. View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “single-phase squirrel-cage motor with large starting torque and phase compensation” (Fynn), St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 19, 1915. (see proceedings for October, 1915)

    H. Weichsel. A few words in regard to the working characteristic of this machine, might be of interest. Mr. Fynn shows in his paper, a series of test curves. A study of these curves shows that this type of machine acts very much like a synchronous motor. With a certain compensation the power factor of the machine at no-load is leading. When the load increases, the power factor approaches unity, an... View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “municipal cooperation in public utility management” (Kealy), St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 19, 1915. (see proceedings for October, 1915)

    Charles A. Hobein: I think probably the chief cooperation of the municipalities in public utility management has been in the operation of electric railways. Particularly, the cities seem to have taken more of a part in the detail work of the railways rather than in the electric light or gas business. Of course, I am not speaking of the water systems which are largely municipally owned. View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “recent results obtained from the preservative treatment of telephone poles” (Rhodes and Hosford), St. Louis, Mo., October 19, 1915. (see proceedings for October 1915)

    Herman von Schrenk: Mr. Hosford brought out the important factor about the changes which take place in poles after service and I note throughout the discussion, in the report and in the tables that the word decay is used. I judge from the description which Mr. Hosford gave us just now that the word decay as he used it, refers not so much to the impregnated portions of the pole as to the parts whic...

  • Discussion on “the engineering experiment station of the University of Illinois” (Paine), St. Louis, Mo., October 20, 1915. (see proceedings for October, 1915)

    E. J. McCausland: Are they doing anything in the University of Illinois in the way of popularizing engineering work? What Professor Paine has presented to us is largely, and in fact altogether, along very definite, scientific, high class engineering. I understand at the University of Wisconsin, and I know at the Iowa State College, a good deal is being done along the lines of more popular work. Is... View full abstract»

    M. G. Lloyd: One interesting thing about this work is the methods of measurement which have been used. It seems to me the methods used by the first authors, at least the principal method used, that involving the volt-second-meter which, I think, is what is usually called a flux meter, is applicable only to specimens with very large cross-sections, such as the cores of transformers or other large p...

  • Discussion on “decomposing magnetic fields into their higher harmonics” (Weichsel), St. Louis, Mo., October 20, 1915. (see proceedings for October, 1915)

    George R. Dean: For some time I have been resolving magnetic fields into their higher harmonics, and wished for some convenient process. All this time I have been using the general procedure which involves a lot of integration, the combining of all kinds of hard integrals, I got my results all right, but now I am checking them up by Mr. Weichsel's method. Of course, these field waves as you call t... View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “automatic switchboard telephone system of Los Angeles,” (Campbell), San Francisco, Cal., Sept. 17, 1915. (see proceedings for August, 1915)

    Leo Keller: After I read Mr. Campbell's paper I decided it might be of general interest to say a little of the details of some of the cut-over work which was necessary, due to the fact that the original plant as laid out by the engineers was altogether knocked out by the tremendous growth and spread of the city of Los Angeles, growth in population and also in area. However, one feature of these ch... View full abstract»
