  • Sources of direct current for electrochemical processes

    The problem involved in producing direct current for electrochemical processes is outlined, and the difficulties are pointedout. Of the methods of power supply using steam turbines that are available, it is shown that: (a) Direct-connected d-c. turbogenerators are available only in relatively small units, and cannot be designed as conservatively from the commutation standpoint as is desirable. (d)... View full abstract»

  • Instability of electric circuits

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):13 - 29
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1427 KB)

    An outline of a theory and classification of instability in electric circuits is given, divided into three types: 1. The transients resulting from the readjustment of the stored energy to changed circuit conditions. 2. Unstable electrical equilibrium; that is, the condition in which the effect of a cause increases the cause. This is illustrated by the electric arc on constant potential, and the in...

  • Discussion on “standardization of method for determining and comparing power costs in steam plants”. (Stott and Gorsuch), Cooperstown, New York, June 26, 1913. (see proceedings for May, 1913)

    Henry Floy: Turning to the last pages of the paper, it is a disappointment to find that the final formula, given on page 1130, in which one looks to find the solution of the problem discussed, omits a part of the “total cost” elements mentioned on page 1119. In fact the question may be fairly raised whether “General and Miscellaneous Administration Expenses” of one plan... View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “the behavior of synchronous motors during starting” (Newbury), “commutating pole saturation in direct-current machines” (Stokes), “constant voltage transmission” (Dwight) and “the industrial use of synchronous motors by central stations” (Parker), Cooperstown, New York, June 25, 1913.

    William J. Foster: The self-starting synchronous motor has one bad characteristic and that is the induced potential across the field terminals. It is something which exists in the nature of the apparatus. Of course, if we keep down the number of turns in the field winding, we always can help out in the matter of induced potential, but, as is stated by Mr. Newbury, it is not always convenient to do...

    F. W. Peek, Jr.: The line insulator is an important factor in determining the success or failure of a transmission scheme. The requirements in present insulator specifications in no way provide for uniform porcelain. Destructive puncture tests are generally made on a few selected units which may indicate a very good insulator. On account of the great lack of uniformity in most porcelain these test...
