  • The economical capacity of a combined hydroelectric and steam power plant

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):347 - 384

    This paper develops a general method for determining the economical capacity of a combined steam and hydroelectric development. The method involves the use of two curves, — one, the “Percent-Deficiency,” giving the stream regimen, the other, the “Percent-Load” giving the characteristics of the load. The first curve gives the percent deficiency of the water for an... View full abstract»

    THE Handbook Sub-Committee of the Electric Power Committee was created at the instance of President Mailloux to consider the feasibility of the Institute's compiling a handbook to be issued to its members, and also to present the idea for discussion, in order thereby to determine the feeling of the members at large regarding such a project. As pointed out in the remarks by Mr. Thomas, Chairman of ... View full abstract»

  • The cost of electricity at the source

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):391 - 398
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (616 KB)

    The Stott-Gorsuch method is applied to the determination of the cost of manufacturing electricity in a 60-cycle station of 100,000 kilowatts installed capacity. The results correspond to the assumption that such a station is capable of delivering from 350,000,000 to 700,000,000 kelvins per annum for load factor ranging from 0.50 to 1.00. For unity load factor the cost of three-phase electricity at... View full abstract»

  • Recording devices

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):399 - 408
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1070 KB)

    The author calls attention to the importance of keeping records in electrical systems and points out that proper records can be secured only by automatic recording devices largely because of the uncertainty of the personal element in times of accident or stress. The three types of recording devices in general use are those having a revolving disk, those using an endless tape or photo-film, and mul... View full abstract»

  • A comparison of the telegraph with the telephone as a means of communication in steam railroad operation

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):409 - 428
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2165 KB)

    Brief historical descriptions of the use of the telegraph and the telephone on railroads are given, the first train having been handled by telegraph in 1851 and the first handling of trains by telephone on long stretches of main line track having started as late as 1907: In comparison with the telegraph, the telephone circuits cost more to install and operate, but effect a saving in the operation ...

  • Traffic studies in automatic-switchboard telephone systems

    The paper describes a telephone traffic recording machine by means of which not only the number of calls for a given period, but also the average duration of each call, is mechanically registered on a moving tape. The observations recorded here were taken on an automatic telephone system. The graphical record shows the exact duration of each connection, the number of connections made during a give...

  • Sixty-cycle synchronous converters

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):439 - 451
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1169 KB)

    The paper describes some 60-cycle, six-phase, 600-volt, synchronous converters used in railway substations in the suburbs of Cleveland. The advantages of the use of 60-cycle apparatus include standardization of frequency, low cost and high efficiency. The converters are of the commutating pole type and a number of special features of their design are described. The improvement of commutation due t... View full abstract»

  • Factors determining a reasonable charge for public utility service

    The paper considers the relations of the public to public service corporations and analyzes the construction and operating costs of the public utility plant upon which the rates for service should be equitably based. The hostility which frequently exists between the public and the officials of such corporations has been due largely to the past attitude of the officials of these corporations; who h...

  • Power from mercury vapor

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):473 - 489
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2769 KB)

    The author describes a thermodynamic process using a mercury boiler in tandem with a steam-generating apparatus for the production of power. As mercury boils at 677 deg. fahr. at atmospheric pressure and condenses in a 28-in. vacuum at 455 deg. fahr., its temperature and pressure characteristics make possible the utilization of some of the energy available in ranges above those practicable for ste...
