    The object of this paper is to bring the actual operation of the New Haven single-phase electrification as closely as possible to those who are truly interested in its merits and faults. The duty assigned to the engineers of the New Haven railroad was to provide for the electrical operation of their trains. At the early period of April 1, 1905, when we settled down to this responsible task, the da... View full abstract»

    Henry L. Doherty: This paper is a most valuable contribution to a subject of great importance. I will not attempt to discuss any of the details of the paper for fear it will distract from the broader matters which are worthy of consideration. View full abstract»

    Percy H. Thomas: The testing of a high-voltage insulator by application of voltage from a spark-gap or other high-frequency discharge has an extremely important bearing on the type of insulator. A four-part insulator or a three-part insulator, in fact any large insulator, has its resisting power made up of a number of elements all practically in series. The possibility of the concentration of pote... View full abstract»

    Wm. J. Foster: There are two or three points in connection with the generator described by Mr. Behrend to which I would like to call attention. I think that in many respects it is a most remarkable machine. The efficiency as given by Mr. Behrend in the tabulation is something unusual, when we consider that it is a generator of 12,000 volts. I would like to point out how, in my opinion, the high ef... View full abstract»

    Frederick Bedell: It is unnecessary to dwell upon the great value of the work of Dr. Steinmetz in this and other papers. It might be proper that this paper be presented at one convention and discussed at another, a year or two later. The increasing value of the work of Dr. Steinmetz impresses me more and more, and looking back over his writings of ten or twelve years ago we find that to-day many o... View full abstract»

    George A. Campbell (by letter): The very simplicity of the facts and principles which Maxwell stated is, apparently, the reason for their being overlooked in the present discussion. The points requiring restatement seem to be the following: View full abstract»

    J. B. Whitehead: This paper was suggested by some of the questions arising in undertaking to change a 30-mile, single-track road from steam to electricity. It is understood, of course, that every project of this nature must be considered in the light of the particular conditions involved, so that it is rather to the methods which have been followed in the present case than to the actual results an...

    J. P. Jackson: I have found, as I presume all who have dealt with gas power-plants have found, that the first question to be determined is that of reliability. Is it possible to have a plant that will operate continuously with good service under all conditions, a plant that will not shut down on account of trouble of one kind or another, as gas plants have a habit of doing?

    Comfort A. Adams: I think that at least a part of Mr. Burt's demonstration may be rendered less mathematical to the advantage of one's physical conception of the problem. I refer to that part leading up to equation (34) which is the algebraic statement of the validity of the ordinary method of measuring three-phase power by means of two wattmeters.
