  • The relation of load-factor to the evaluation of hydroelectric plants

    Publication Year: 1906, Page(s):163 - 167

    The value of any water-power plant is due primarily to its earnings, with earnings dependent on the market for its output, and secondarily to the type and quality of the apparatus installed and of the development as a whole. In the case of plants that are in process of development, or that are only partly loaded, the value is, of course, more or less of a speculative nature, and is estimated on th... View full abstract»

  • Notes on design of hydroelectric power stations (with reference to the influence of load-factor)

    Publication Year: 1906, Page(s):169 - 187

    Hydroelectric power plants are designed with the ultimate object of being producers of wealth. All factors which have any bearing on fixed charges, cost of operation, or sale of power, must be considered. At the time of designing, operating conditions cannot be known definitely and such factors as amount and distribution of load can be considered only in a general way. This is one difference betwe...

  • Standardizing rubber-covered wires and cables

    The effect of the tendency toward high electrical pressures is nowhere more severely felt than in the requirement for insulated wires and cables, for insulation practically controls this feature of electrical distribution. Electrical pressures can, to be sure, be increased to almost any extent, and electrical energy be transmitted to almost any distance; but to control its pathway, to regulate its...

    There are certain practices now so general in underground cable work for light and power in America as to be almost standard. Some of these practices may be examined with advantage. View full abstract»

    Thomas D. Lockwood: In the early years of the telephone exchange, when the telephone engineers of the present time — yes, and the telephone business managers of the present time — were learning their business by hard knocks, we all thought, having no idea of course of what the telephone exchange would grow to, that the greatest and most wonderful feature of telephony was the inventio...
