  • Thermocouples and resistance coils for the determination of local temperatures in electrical machines

    Publication Year: 1913, Page(s):701 - 708
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (990 KB)

    The paper discusses different devices for measuring temperatures in electrical machines and points out their various sources of error, and also the limitations of the uses of mercury and alcohol thermometers, thermocouples and resistance coils. Fluid thermometers can generally measure only surface temperatures, and temperatures of rotating parts must be measured after they come to rest, thereby in... View full abstract»

  • Generator and prime mover capacities

    Publication Year: 1913, Page(s):709 - 720
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1358 KB)

    Electric generators are of necessity driven by prime movers and the combination must be treated as a single unit when considering the questions of ratings and capacities. The importance of the proper adaptation of the capacities is fully emphasized by the fact that there are in operation in many stations in this country, units in which the output is unnecessarily limited by a discrepancy in the ra...

  • The application of synchronous motors to a water power transmission system for the betterment of service standards

    Publication Year: 1913, Page(s):721 - 755

    The writer will in this paper trace the history, to some extent, of the causes leading up to the application of synchronous apparatus to the water power transmission system of the Indiana and Michigan Electric Company for the purpose of maintaining adequate and serviceable standards comparable with such as would be realized with an individual steam plant situated where power and light are to be ut...

  • Air as an insulator when in the presence of insulating bodies of higher specific inductive capacity

    Publication Year: 1913, Page(s):757 - 772
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1685 KB)

    The purpose of the paper is to show the conditions that determine the disruptive strength of an air path along the surface of a solid dielectric of higher specific inductive capacity, and what steps must be taken to insure the most efficient use of the two dielectrics in combination. Part II of the paper discusses the effect on the electric field between two given terminals of the presence of a so... View full abstract»

  • The application of a theorem of electrostatics to insulation problems

    Publication Year: 1913, Page(s):773 - 793
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2548 KB)

    The arrangement of conductors so that they shall assist in insulating one another has received but little consideration. The object of this paper is to emphasize a principle of electrostatic theory by which this may be done. A statement of this principle is: “If a region in any particular electric field be isolated or cut out by any number of closed surfaces then the electric field in this ... View full abstract»

    A. E. Kennelly: This paper manifestly embodies a large amount of valuable experimental work. It is work, as has been stated, done under very trying conditions, and we are all the more indebted to those who have done the work on that account. We have, it is true, known but little concerning the heating conditions inside ducts, although we know fairly well the heating conditions around a single cabl... View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “power requirements of rolling mills” (Sykes), and “the economical speed control or alternating-current motors driving rolling mills” (Meyer and Sykes), New York, November 8, 1912.

    A. Dyckerhoff (communicated after adjournment): In going over the paper on The Economical Speed Control of Alternating-Current Motors Driving Rolling Mills, it occurs to me that some statements made in this paper are misleading, and also that many points are not brought out which should be mentioned. While I do not wish to invade the territory of the rolling mill engineer, whose task it is to find... View full abstract»
