    The element selenium was discovered by Berzelius in 1817. It can be obtained in various forms and applied to many uses, although its peculiar properties have been generally understood for only about thirty-five years. In 1873 while experimenting with selenium as an ohmic resistance, Willoughby Smith discovered that the resistance of this metal was reduced by exposure to light. In using sticks of s...

  • Single-phase versus three-phase generation for single-phase railways

    Publication Year: 1907, Page(s):1041 - 1046
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (497 KB)

    The introduction of the alternating-current single-phase railway motor calling for a single-phase secondary distribution system makes it pertinent to inquire into the question of power generation and primary distribution for such systems. While the simplicity of single-phase generation and distribution is unquestioned, it is not always possible or desirable in these days of general power distribut... View full abstract»

  • The choice of frequency for single-phase alternating-current railway motors

    Owing to the success attending the several installations of single-phase alternating-current railway motors in this country and abroad, and the suitability of this type of motive power for the electrification of certain steam lines, the questions have been asked as to whether the 25-cycle frequency thus far universally used is the frequency best adapted for alternating-current motor design and ope...

    At the regular meeting of the Institute, on January 25 of this year, a paper was presented by Messrs. Stillwell and Putnam dealing with the electrification of steam railways and referring briefly to the question of the adoption of a standard frequency for single-phase railways. This question aroused a great deal of interest and was discussed at greater length than any other feature of the paper. T... View full abstract»

  • The attitude of the technical school toward the profession of electrical engineering

    Publication Year: 1907, Page(s):1065 - 1075

    The technical school is primarily an educational institution. The purpose is not to teach trades of any order, nor is it directly to produce business or professional men. The technical school sustains a vital relation to the profession of electrical engineering, and it cannot succeed without an understanding of that relation. On the other hand, the profession cannot use technical graduates efficie... View full abstract»

    In accordance with a motion made by Dr. Steinmetz, and duly carried at the last Annual Convention of the Institute, at Milwaukee, the Standardization Rules have been revised in form and wording and in accordance with various suggestions received from members of the Institute. This work has been accomplished by the Standards Committee which has held monthly meetings beginning in September last. View full abstract»

    The aims in teaching electrical engineering must be in accord with the demands of the electrical industry, and with the needs of the country, broadly understood. The details of electrotechnical pedagogics should properly be discussed among the teachers themselves, but the principles and the aims should be established through close cooperation with national technical bodies, such as the American In...

    The subject-matter of this address is not in any sense electrical in character, but the effect described was discovered as the result of electrical work and the products obtainable by it may, with advantage, be used in electrical work and machinery. Such is my excuse for offering these remarks before this Institute. View full abstract»

    Certain memorable opinions, recently uttered by railroad men whose creative and administrative work, and wide experience entitle them to preeminence, command attention. In March last, the New York Times contained an interview with Mr. E. H. Harriman, who discussed at length various features of the present steam railroad situation; the influence of national and state legislation; the developments, ... View full abstract»
