  • The oxide film lightning arrester

    Publication Year: 1918, Page(s):541 - 550
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1404 KB)

    The oxide film arrester is a new type of lightning arrester made up of a film of insulation in contact with a conducting powder. Upon the application of over-voltage, the insulation will be pierced, but the powder will very rapidly turn into insulation and plug any holes punctured in the original insulation by the over-voltage, thus forming in substance a resealing insulation. A brief description ... View full abstract»

  • The oxide film lightning arrester

    A short history of lightning protection of electric systems is given, as relating to the three successive types of electric circuits; the communication circuits, the power circuits of negligible electrostatic capacity, and the high power circuits containing distributed capacity and inductance and capable of electric oscillation, leading to the three problems of discharging over-voltage to ground, ...

  • Aerial cable construction for electric power transmission

    Publication Year: 1918, Page(s):561 - 570
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4152 KB)

    This paper deals with the problem of supplying high-tension electric service where conditions do not permit of the use of open wire or underground circuits. The methods of overcoming difficulties incidental to providing for high-tension service are discussed in detail, together with a description of the types of cable used and methods of installation. The experience of a large central station comp... View full abstract»

    The paper first gives a summation of the items that are apparently the main causes of pin-type insulator failures in service. Each item is thereafter briefly discussed and the opinions of operating men are cited. A brief description is given of the method used to determine the form of the dielectric field about porcelain insulators under normal line voltage. Diagrams of the dielectric field and ph...

  • America's energy supply

    Publication Year: 1918, Page(s):591 - 615

    The gist of the paper is to demonstrate that the economical utilization of the country's energy supply requires generating electric power wherever hydraulic or fuel energy is available, and collecting the power electrically, just as we distribute it electrically. In the first section a short review of the country's energy supply in fuel and water power is given, and it is shown that the total pote... View full abstract»

  • Protection from flashing for direct current apparatus

    Publication Year: 1918, Page(s):617 - 628
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (12492 KB)

    The equipment developed for the protection of direct-current apparatus as described in this paper is applicable to all direct-current apparatus and all methods of operation. Special means of protection for use only with particular apparatus or conditions of operation have not been mentioned. The principal steps in the experimental development of high-speed circuit breakers and flash barriers are b... View full abstract»

  • Method of symmetrical co-ordinates applied to the solution of polyphase networks

    In the introduction a general discussion of unsymmetrical systems of co-planar vectors leads to the conclusion that they may be represented by symmetrical systems of the same number of vectors, the number of symmetrical systems required to define the given system being equal to its degrees of freedom. A few trigonometrical theorems which are to be used in the paper are called to mind. The paper is... View full abstract»
