    The speed of an engine may be expressed in revolutions per minute, or in terms of the linear velocity of the crank-pin in feet per minute. Revolutions per minute is rather more indefinite than crank-pin velocity in feet per minute, because feet per minute is accepted as not simply a measurement for a minute of time, whereas revolutions per minute more frequently is. Revolutions per minute may mean... View full abstract»

  • The non-synchronous generator in central station and other work

    That an induction motor could act as a generator and return power to the line when driven at a speed above that of synchronism, has been known for many years. It has, however, always been regarded as more or less of a scientific curiosity, and except in the case of the Swiss three-phase mountain roads, where the motors are sometimes allowed to run as generators to brake the train on descending hea...

    It is not the intention to make this paper a history of the development of the synchronous converter, but rather to point out some of the more important improvements which have been made in the last few years. View full abstract»

    There are now in service in this country in railway work alone, synchronous converters with an aggregate capacity of nearly 1,000,000 kw. In spite of the wide use of this machine, some features of its design and operation are not generally clearly understood, or are quite generally misunderstood. It is the purpose of the following paper to take up three of these features as follows. View full abstract»
