  • Magnetic properties of electrolytic iron

    Publication Year: 1906 , Page(s): 445 - 451

    Iron which has been deposited electrolytically from an aqueous solution is not necessarily a definite product, but varies in chemical composition and physical constitution, depending upon the adjustment of the various factors which govern the deposition. High purity is a property frequently ascribed to electrolytic iron, and it is probably a fact that by no other means can iron be purified to as high a degree as is possible by the electrolytic method. It is safe to say that absolutely pure iron has never been produced either electrolytically or by any other method. View full abstract»

  • Interurban test-car of the University of Illinois

    Publication Year: 1906 , Page(s): 453 - 463

    About 15 years ago the first serious consideration was given to railway testing work by an educational institution when one of the universities of the middle West∗ installed a locomotive-testing plant. Shortly after, the University of Illinois obtained its dynamometer car, which was in service for some years and was later replaced by a second car having many improvements over the original one. This car is now operated jointly with the Illinois Central Railroad. It was used at the time of making the recent exhaustive investigations for the electrification of the New York Central Railroad. The knowledge acquired from the above mentioned sources has been of much value both commercially and educationally. View full abstract»

    There are many kinds of invention. The poet, the artist, the playwright, the novelist all exercise or may exercise invention in the production of their works. The merchant may exercise invention in the devising of a new method of selling goods. The department store was an invention of this class. View full abstract»

  • Electrical connections for power stations

    The division and arrangement of units and the system of electrical connections in a power station have much to do with the cost and successful operation of the plant. Conditions vary to an extent which prohibits the use of standard arrangements, but certain general principles are applicable to all layouts. For the purpose of this paper the factors to be considered are generators, transformers, lines, bus-bars, and switches with their relays. The kind of load, number of stations on system, lines in parallel, number of lines, size of generator and transformer units, and local conditions, govern the power house arrangements.

  • Economies to be derived from the utilization of water powers of low head in the Central West

    The necessity for the utmost reduction in the cost of their product is being pressed more determinedly upon the electric generating companies located in the smaller cities of the central west as the use of the electric current becomes more generalized. The extension and generalization of the use of current also goes hand in hand with, and is encouraged by reduction in the cost of the plant output, since a generating company may obviously increase its sales at a rapidly accelerating rate as the price of its product falls.

  • Some fundamental characteristics of mercury vapor apparatus

    Publication Year: 1906 , Page(s): 531 - 556

    The characteristic of the type of mercury vacuum apparatus, invented and developed by Mr. Peter Cooper Hewitt, which distinguishes it most clearly from other forms of vacuum tubes, is its power of passing a comparatively large continuous current with a constant and comparatively insignificant voltage loss. There are, of course, other important features of this mercury vapor apparatus characteristic to it, such as the negative electrode starting resistance; the disintegrating, reconstructing negative electrode, etc. View full abstract»

  • Automatic safety devices for steam-engines, turbines, and motors

    The increasing use of automatic appliances is a noteworthy feature of the tendency in engineering development. In the electrical industries automatic appliances are largely used, and the results have been so good that we find the peculiar flexibility of electrical systems leading to their use for automatic apparatus in other lines of work.
