  • Notes on transmission practice in the Northwest

    The object of this paper is to assemble in a form convenient for comparison and discussion the various systems of high-tension transmission in the Northwest, and to discuss the relative merits and defects of each system. As each section of the country has its own characteristic set of climatic and industrial conditions, transmission practice features that are economical and good practice in one section may be more or less unsuitable in another section.

  • Pioneer developments within the general electric company

    I have been asked to speak to the Section members to-night regarding “Pioneer Developments within the General Electric Company.” I have attempted many different lines of work since the beginning of my business career, some 28 years ago, but this is the first time I have tried to fill the post of historian. Dr. Steinmetz has said that he always likes to play the rôle of a prophet, because to be a successful prophet it is only necessary to put the date of your prophesies far enough in the future to insure that all your present listeners will be dead.

    Introduction and historical. Twenty years ago electricity, except for lighting purposes, was virtually unknown to the iron and steel industries, while to-day in all of the steel works in this country it is used as a motive power for most of the auxiliary machinery, from the ore docks to the loading beds. The electric drive is utilized in ore unloaders, ore bridges, car dumpers, bin-filling cars, scale larries, blast-furnace skips, hot-metal mixers, electric cranes of all sizes and descriptions, open-hearth charging machines, ingot buggies, gas producers, roller tables, lifting tables, transfers, hot-bed apparatus — in short, a multitude of machines too numerous to mention here. This development has been such that it would probably be no exaggeration to say that the steel industry in this country would never have reached its present proportions without the use of electric motors. As a further gauge of progress, it is significant that the larger electric manufacturing companies have been forced to establish special departments to look after the business of the steel industries.

  • Condenser type of insulation for high-tension terminals

    The manufacture of apparatus for pressures of 88,000 volts or more resolves itself into the proper selection and arrangement of insulating materials. Of all the problems involved in this selection and arrangement, that of insulating the terminal wires where they pass through the case presents the greatest difficulty. When the terminal wires are carried through a metal cover the danger from breakdown is increased, yet the tendency of the latest designs is toward the use of metal tanks and covers. Even with present voltages the greatest difficulty lies in bringing out the terminal wires through the case. What may be termed “brute force” has characterized the proportioning of high-tension terminals up to the present time, as almost every class of insulating material in nearly every possible shape has been used to surround the conductor as it passes through the top of the case. The top itself has often been made of insulating material such as wood, simply to assist in insulating the lead. View full abstract»

  • High-voltage transformers and protective and controling apparatus for outdoor installation

    Outdoor or weatherproof transformers for ordinary distributing purposes, and for potentials up to about 2500 volts, have long been in general service. With the exception of arc lamps and series incandescent lamps, transformers have been about the only apparatus in high-tension service not protected by buildings. Distributing circuits operating at 6600 volts are now quite common. There are also a few 10,000-volt, and a small number of 15,000-volt distributing systems using outdoor transformers.

    Elihu Thomson: The paper I have to present is in large measure incomplete. It is merely a sketch or outline, and much of it is historical, going back to the early days of the inception of the art which this Institute represents. It was thought it would be well to bring together in one paper and place upon the records of the Institute some of the historical facts connected with the subject treated in the paper.
