    The paper gives a brief outline of some of the important developments in oil circuit breakers which have taken place within the last two or three years. Ideal conditions require that the current should not reestablish itself after passing the first zero value following the opening of the contacts, and this emphasizes the value of high opening speed in a circuit breaker. Breakers have been designed... View full abstract»

  • Tungsten lamps of high efficiency — I and II

    Publication Year: 1913, Page(s):1893 - 1914

    The first paper describes investigations into the cause of blackening of the bulbs of tungsten lamps and discusses methods where by this effect is avoided and the efficiency of the lamp thereby increased. The second paper describes in detail the high-efficiency tungsten lamps which have been produced by filling the bulbs with nitrogen vapor at approximately atmospheric pressure. The blackening of ...

  • Electric drive in machine shops

    To increase production and to decrease cost are two important questions continually before the manufacturer. Since labor is the greatest cost of production, then, where machine tools are a considerable factor in the production, maximum output from the tool is a necessity. Tools that are limited in production because of a lack of power at the tool are a source of expense to the manufacturer. Power ... View full abstract»

  • Relation of plant size to power cost

    Publication Year: 1913, Page(s):1935 - 1948

    The author gives three principal reasons why a central station plant can take care of a given service more economically than a small plant. First, because the first cost per kilowatt of the large units is lower than the corresponding cost of the small units, thereby reducing the first cost and the annual fixed charges. Second, because the operation of a large plant is proportionally less than that... View full abstract»

  • Industrial substations

    The author traces briefly the engineering development of “industrial substations”, by which term he designates installations of electrical plant equipment in consumers' premises, receiving electrical energy from a central station system. A discussion is entered into of the factors governing the design and installation of this class of substation and four factors are advanced as deter... View full abstract»
