    I. Cause of the Great Dielectric Strength of Air Films on the Surface of a Conductor at High-potential a. By the method that employs a conductor of circular section mounted in the air at the center of a hollow conducting cylinder, the electric stresses at the conductor surface required to start corona were observed and reported to the Institute.∗ These observations are recharted, using kilo...

  • High-voltage line loss tests made on the 100-kilovolt 60-cycle 180-mile transmission line of the Central Colorado power company

    Publication Year: 1911, Page(s):77 - 85

    Somewhat over a year ago, Mr. West then assistant general manager and now general manager of the Central Colorado Power Co. made a careful series of high-voltage line loss, wave-distortion and charging-current tests. He gave the writer copies of the results of these tests at the time they were obtained because of the wish on the part of the latter to make a study of the fundamental principles of t...

    A little over a year ago Dr. Steinmetz suggested the construction of an artificial transmission line or “slow-speed conductor” in the Electrical Laboratory at Union College. It was proposed to duplicate or reproduce as nearly as possible the conditions of a high-voltage long-distance transmission line in the laboratory in such a way that the various phenomena connected with a line of...

  • Tests of losses on high tension lines

    It is generally admitted that corona losses constitute the most serious objection to the use of higher voltages in transmission lines. For this reason a number of physicists and engineers have devoted and are devoting their attention to the study of corona phenomena. Their investigations can be divided into two classes.

  • The temperature gradient in oil immersed transformers

    High temperatures are objectionable in transformers for several reasons. The first of these is their effect on the insulating materials, which are subject to gradual deterioration at temperatures of about 100 deg. cent. and to rapid destruction at temperatures greatly in excess of that figure. A second reason, which is not nearly so important, but nevertheless a valid objection, is their effect up... View full abstract»

    It is my intention to bring before the Institute as briefly as may be, the apparent changes in general direction of curves required for predetermining core losses of apparatus, especially transformers, in which silicon steel is used. View full abstract»

    One of the most important problems confronting a designing engineer is the compromise between the design which, in his opinion, is best but too expensive for competition, and the design which can be built to barely meet guarantees and which can be sold for the lowest possible price. The designing engineer is at times compelled to cater to the idiosyncrasies of certain customers, whose special requ... View full abstract»
