    More or less has been said during the past few years about the installation of high-tension cables. But little emphasis has been placed upon the necessity for extreme care in installation, although as a matter of fact the burn-outs, if any, appearing when the cable system is first subjected to operating or test voltage, are almost entirely due to faulty joints or to careless handling at the time t...

    So many excellent papers bearing upon the subject of steam road electrification have recently been presented to the engineering public that the writer hesitates to add to their number. In the hope, however, of offering a somewhat clearer insight into the fundamental reasons underlying the electrification movement, this paper is written from the standpoint of a technical comparison of the performan...

  • Constants of cables and magnetic conductors

    In the paper on “Line Constants, Etc.,” equations were given for the inductance and capacity of the parallel conductors used in transmission lines. The formulas given were sufficiently accurate for any transmission line calculations where the distance between wires is large compared with their diameters; where, however, the diameters are comparable with the distance, as is often the ...

  • Discussion on “light from gaseous conductors within glass tubes — The Moore light,” at New York April 26, 1907

    While we are waiting for the remainder of the tests which are to be made upon the tube and the lamps strung around the room, we may as well proceed with the discussion. I feel that we have been listening to the exposition of a new art. My mind goes back to 1893, 1896, and also to 1898, the time of the “Moore Chapel,” when the Institute heard from Mr. Moore before. In those days what ... View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “motor-generators vs. synchronous converters, with special reference to operation on long-distance transmission lines.” at New York, March 22, 1907

    In regard to the use of motor-generators or synchronous converters, the question seems to me to be one of voltage regulation. The requirements of a railway system fed from a general transmission system are best met as to first cost and efficiency of operation by the adoption of the synchronous converter, and its almost universal use in railway installations would seem to leave no room for argument...

    I stated that hydraulic turbines for large capacity, of 7500 kw. or above in individual units, are not likely to be of great importance at the present. The extensions at Niagara Falls may contain such large individual units; I hardly think that for the Victoria Falls of the Zambesi, units of 7500 kw. will be installed. Our chairman, Mr. Mershon, will probably bear me out when I say that the units ... View full abstract»
