    It is shown in Section IV, that with the ordinary field forms met with in practice the resultant flux wave under s. s. c. (sustained short-circuits) will be extremely distorted, see Figs. 16, (4th wave) 23, 27, 27a, etc., for the simple reason that with the very low voltages obtained under such conditions, the fundamental of the B-curve of the field is reduced so much by the armature reaction that...

  • The automatic hydroelectric plant

    The automatic hydroelectric generating station of the Iowa Railway and Light Company at Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is a radical step in advance in the elimination of operator's wages in a station of appreciable size, without sacrificing complete control. This station consists of three 400-kw., 500-kv-a., 60-rev. per min., 2300-volt, vertical generating units, tied in to a system, of which the main genera... View full abstract»

  • Pre-charged condensers in series and in parallel

    A condenser is charged from a source of direct voltage, and then is used as a booster in series with this source to charge another condenser. By repeating this process a large number of times the second condenser is finally subjected to twice the voltage of the source. This is the principle of the Delon apparatus for testing cables, and is explained in a numerical example. Then the more general ca... View full abstract»

  • Lightning arrester spark gaps their relation to the problem of protecting against impulse voltages

    Publication Year: 1918, Page(s):519 - 540
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2679 KB)

    This paper describes a new form of high-voltage lightning arrester gap which has been called the “impulse protective gap” because of its particular effectiveness in protecting against line disturbances of steep wave front. The paper opens with a brief resumé of some of the results of previous investigations of the subject of impulse voltages. A discussion of the points involve... View full abstract»
