  • 150,000-Volt transmission system: Some operating conditions of the Big Creek development of the Pacific light & power corporation

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1359 - 1370
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3696 KB)

    The paper describes operating conditions on the 150,000-volt transmission line of the Pacific Light and Power Corporation which delivers power from the Big Creek hydroelectric development to Los Angeles, Cal., 240 miles away. In daily operation 60,000 kw. are generated, utilizing a total hydraulic head of 4000 ft., in two steps. Plans for the future contemplate the building of two more power house... View full abstract»

  • The classical-scientific vs. the purely technical university course for the electrical engineer

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1371 - 1378

    THE idea of a technical course for engineers is relatively new. Like most new things it has had to prove its merit in order to secure proper recognition. It received little sympathy in its beginnings, and even today, when education for definite vocations has won its long battle, many of the older men are apt to think that what was good enough for them, ought to be good enough for any one. The head... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1379 - 1382

    THE range of thought embraced by this comprehensive subject is so great that only some few phases of it can be even mentioned here. I shall therefore restrict myself to the expression of views concerning the best possible method of training electrical engineers, of producing electrical engineers, who are at the same time thoroughly educated men of the world: View full abstract»

  • Should an electrical engineer be broadly educated?

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1383 - 1386

    BETWEEN the two titles given me for this brief paper, namely, “Classical-Scientific versus the Purely Technical University Course for the Electrical Engineer” and “Why an Electrical Engineer should be Broadly Educated,” I have taken the liberty of naming a third as the heading for my remarks — “Should an Electrical Engineer Be Broadly Educated?” View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “self-contained portable electric mine lamps” (Swoboda), Pittsburgh, Pa., April 9, 1914. (see proceedings for April, 1914)

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1387 - 1391

    H. H. Clark: The first requirements of portable electric lamps are safety, and the capacity for uninterrupted production of a sufficient amount of light. I wish to emphasize, however, that from the viewpoint of the mine operator, a lamp to be successful must be able to operate day after day with a reasonable amount of repairs and replacement. If this is to be accomplished the lamp battery must be ... View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “the development of the electric mine locomotive” (Eaton), Pittsburgh, Pa., April 10, 1914. (see proceedings for April, 1914)

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1392 - 1406

    W. W. Miller: Referring to Mr. Eaton's paper, it may be of interest to note that a mine locomotive of 14,000 lb. weight with a single motor chain drive was built in 1886, and installed in the anthracite field. This locomotive was in daily operation until 1909, and although preserved since then for its associations and historical interest, it is still used in the mines whenever required by emergenc...

  • Discussion on “mine duty controllers” (Reed), Pittsburgh, Pa., April 9, 1914. (see proceedings for April, 1914)

    F. L. Stone: There is one line of control on which Mr. Reed has touched very lightly. That is the handling of 2200 volts. This voltage is coming more in use every day, and must be controlled in a safe and efficient manner. The use of oil-immersed switches was the first method tried, but where the operation is frequent and the service severe, as in the case of the mine hoist, either of the slope or...

  • Discussion on “motor-generator sets vs. synchronous converters in mine substations” (Hoen), and “mine substations; their construction and operation” (Booker), Pittsburgh, Pa., April 10, 1914. (see proceedings for April, 1914)

    Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1416 - 1420

    W. A. Thomas: Unquestionably from the standpoint of economy the synchronous converter is superior to the motor-generator set, but in a careful analysis of the mining conditions, and the ultimate results to be accomplished, the question of the kilowatt-hours per ton in transformed energy constitutes a relatively small proportion of the total cost. The method of distribution of the direct current wh... View full abstract»
