    The subject of electric cables, in its entirety, is so broad that several papers would be necessary to do it full justice. Much could be written about the material entering into the construction of cables, much about the manufacture of cables, and a great deal about the testing and installation of cables. A description of the different kinds of cable and the use for which they are intended would o... View full abstract»

    Among the many electrical developments of the day the most striking one, the most far reaching in its direct and indirect results, is the successful transmission of energy at greatly increased pressures. From present indications systems operating at potentials of 100,000 volts and over will not be uncommon in a few years, and none dare prophesy what further increase the future has in store. What t...

    J. B. Taylor: The stroboscopic disc illuminated by an alternating-current arc or incandescent lamp has been used for a number of years to determine the speed of induction motors, synchronous machinery, and of other pieces of apparatus. This method of obtaining intermittent illumination is much simpler than by means of the fork described in this paper, and for some purposes gives the desired inform... View full abstract»

    J. H. Finney: Mr. Baum's paper is an interesting presentation of his views as a “power enthusiast and a believer in a cheap source of power,” and his belief that “cheap power is vital and necessary to the present and future development of the country” will be, I am sure, supported heartily in this assemblage. We may also be classed as power enthusiasts. I think, however... View full abstract»

    A. B. Smith: For a number of years it has been my hope that the automatic would be able to solve the telephone problem for large cities; that it would bring the rental a little lower for the benefit of the many who need the telephone but cannot now afford it, and that it would afford relief from the party line. That this can only be done by subdivision into small offices with short subscriber line... View full abstract»

    J. H. Finney: I believe that many of us here fail to realize the actual value of the work that has been done by the Southern Power Company in the south. I think that there are not many electric plants in this county that I have not seen at one time or another, and I believe the work that has been done by developing the water power system of the Catawba river by the Southern Power Company is as cre...

  • Discussion on “fundamental considerations governing the design of transmission line structures.” Atlantic city, N. J., June 30, 1908

    N. J. Neall (by letter): It may properly be said of a transmission line structure that factors of safety are both necessary and expensive. It is naturally desirable, therefore, so to shape the design and so to adjust it to its operating requirements as to secure a maximum of service with a minimum of outlay. View full abstract»

    C. W. Ricker: The additional data which I have to present should properly have been included in Mr. Bibbins' paper, but as an analysis of all the vouchers had to be made to determine these data, which could not be done in time, they will be offered as discussion as briefly as possible. The data are as follows: View full abstract»

    W. I. Slichter: There is a point in the subject of cascade connection of induction motors which the speaker would like to hear discussed, as it is particularly important in connection with railway engineering. The usual and first idea of the result of the cascade connection of induction motors is that it will make it possible to obtain from a given pair of motors a greater torque at a low speed th...
