Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1427 - 1446
| | PDF (2154 KB)

Introduction THE constitution of this Institute prescribes that the president “shall deliver an address at the annual convention.” The duty thereby assigned to the president becomes one of his last official ones, when the annual convention falls so near the end of the term of office, as it has in the last few years.

• ### Engineering data relating to high-tension transmission systems: Sub-committee report prepared by the chairman

Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1447 - 1523
| | PDF (14459 KB)

THE present report is an analysis of the engineering data received from 25 power companies, operating high-tension transmission systems, in answer to a printed list of questions prepared by the High-Tension Transmission Committee of the year 1912–1913, and sent by that committee to 105 power companies operating at 25,000 volts and over.

The following specification was prepared by the High-Tension Transmission Committee of 1912–13, and was revised by the Engineering Data Committee of 1913–14. The committees preparing and revising this specification were as follows: View full abstract»

• ### Delta and Y connections for railway transmission and distribution

Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1539 - 1542
| | PDF (1405 KB)

Transformer connections under the following three conditions are discussed: The railway; (1) purchases power; (2) builds and operates the generating and transmission systems; (3) purchases power and in addition builds and operates a secondary transmission system. The choice between delta and Y connection is frequently determined by purely economic considerations. However, it is common practise to ... View full abstract»

• ### Electrical equipment of the argentine battleship “Moreno”

Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1543 - 1568
| | PDF (12997 KB)

This paper describes the electrical installation of one of the two Argentine battleships building in this country and now nearing completion. The methods of installation and distribution of energy; the extensive application, far surpassing any vessel so far constructed in this country, and the results secured by departure from present practise; all these are concisely recorded. Detailed descriptio... View full abstract»

• ### Submarine signaling: The protection of shipping by a wall of sound and other uses of the submarine telegraph oscillator

Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1569 - 1581
| | PDF (1406 KB)

Submarine signaling has been greatly advanced by the introduction of a powerful sound transmitter and receiver called the “Fessenden telegraph oscillator.” By means of this, telegraph messages can be sent and received through the water by moving ships and for short distances speech can be transmitted, icebergs can be located, and soundings taken instantaneously. The apparatus consist... View full abstract»

• ### Electrical features of the U. S. Reclamation service

Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1583 - 1598
| | PDF (1684 KB)

The operations of the U. S. Reclamation Service are of interest to electrical engineers not only in some of the novel developments and applications of power but also as illustrating the efforts of the federal government in the construction of works of general public utility. One of the most interesting features is the question of cost of government work, much of which in this case is executed unde... View full abstract»

• ### Effect of electrolysis on the compressive strength of cement and concrete

Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1599 - 1610
| | PDF (1676 KB)

A paper on “The Electrolytic Corrosion of Reinforced Concrete” by C. E. Magnusson and G. H. Smith was read before the A. I. E. E. June 30, 1911, and, as stated in that paper, the results could not be pronounced entirely conclusive, as the duration of the experiments was only 30 days. In the present paper a similar series of experiments is described by the authors in which the tests w... View full abstract»

• ### Discussion on “the cost of electricity at the source” (Hobart), New York, February 26, 1914. (see proceedings for March, 1914)

Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1611 - 1620

J. W. Lieb, Jr : I am sure that under the conditions obtaining in our larger cities the figure given by the author, of $35 per kilowatt of capacity, will not cover the real estate and buildings of a character to satisfy local conditions. The sum of$35, even if otherwise adequate, which I doubt, would allow the merest shell of a building rather than such a structure as it would be necessary to pro... View full abstract»

• ### Discussion on “Solenoids” (Underhill), Washington, D. C., April 24, 1914. (see proceedings for April, 1914)

Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1621 - 1628
| | PDF (671 KB)

Charles W. Burrows: I would like to call attention to a few points in which I am not in complete agreement with the author. In the first place, Tables I to IV used in the calculation of the magnetic field are given out to the sixth place of decimals. As the assumptions made in the computations did not seem to warrant such precision I recalculated some of the results by a more precise formula, as f... View full abstract»

• ### Discussion on “some investigations on lightning protection for buildings” (Deblois), Washington, D. C., April 24, 1914. (see proceedings for April, 1914)

Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1629 - 1637
| | PDF (1157 KB)

E. E. F. Creighton: There has been very little work done on the direct study of cloud lightning, and therefore this paper may be considered as a turning point. There is no committee at the present time of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers or of the National Electric Light Association which will give this subject the study that is needed. Perhaps the problem is important enough to rece... View full abstract»

• ### Discussion on “some simple examples of transmission line surges” (Franklin), Washington, D. C., April 24, 1914. (see proceedings for April, 1914)

Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1638 - 1647

J. Murray Weed: The steepest wave fronts which are produced in the practical operation of electrical systems are those caused by the sudden making or breaking of a circuit. A discharge to ground would come under this classification, although this may not constitute the making of a circuit which it is desired to make. It does not seem likely, however, that the making of a circuit, which takes place... View full abstract»

• ### Discussion on “theory of the corona” (Davis), Washington, D. C., April 25, 1914. (see proceedings for April, 1914)

Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1648 - 1658
| | PDF (1336 KB)

J. B. Whitehead (by letter): Professor Davis's paper is noteworthy as being the first thorough-going attempt to explain the phenomena of corona formation in terms of the theory of ionization. In each of the papers of my series on The Electric Strength of Air, I have stated my opinion that the phenomena in question would ultimately be explained in terms of that theory. Professor Davis is the first,... View full abstract»

• ### Discussion on “a milliampere current transformer” (Bennett), Washington, D. C., April 25, 1914. (see proceedings for April, 1914)

Publication Year: 1914, Page(s):1659 - 1661
| | PDF (345 KB)

J. B. Whitehead (by letter): In conjunction with Professor Bennett's paper∗ last year at Cooperstown, the present paper completes a description of the equipment with which he has obtained his interesting and valuable results on the corona. The transformer which he describes, by offering a means for measuring the corona current, should open up a wide field of investigation. The po... View full abstract»
