    President Lieb: The papers presented this evening represent an interesting series relating to indicating and recording instruments. This is a subject in which we are interested, either as buyers or sellers of current, or engaged in making tests, or conducting investigations in which this class of apparatus is used.

  • Discussion on “measuring instruments” at Philadelphia, May 8, 1905

    President Lieb: I know that if there is a spirit pervading the administration of the Institute — it has also pervaded previous administrations — it is the feeling that the Institute is not merely a body of electrical engineers living and working in New York, but that it is a national body, that it represents and has at heart the interests of electrical engineers all over the United States. I feel that the central organization is certainly alive to its obligations and to its duties to the local organizations, as representing a very much larger constituency than merely the local membership of New York. Perhaps this feeling of greater interest which the members removed from New York should have will be aroused when our engineering building shall have been completed. View full abstract»

    One would infer from Mr. Nies' paper that the polyphase meter is an inherently inaccurate instrument. A polyphase meter so constructed that there are no mutual electrical or magnetic influences between the two meter elements, should and does operate just as accurately as the single element of a single-phase meter. This independence of the two meter elements is made permissible by connecting them together mechanically instead of electrically and magnetically. A polyphase meter mechanically connected between the two elements (that is, with two complete meter elements respectively acting upon two discs fixed to the same shaft) is polyphase only in that it may be so connected with polyphase circuits as to measure accurately the power whether the circuits are balanced or unbalanced.

    The idea of frequently calibrating and adjusting instruments, particularly integrating wattmeters, and providing a means for readily inserting standardizing instruments is to be highly commended. The use of modern potential and current transformers greatly simplifies the operations of standardizing and adds to the safety of the installation. The cupped-diamond bearing is a recent innovation; its use is highly recommended by those who have tried them. View full abstract»

    To the south of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, and occupying portions of North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia, lies the high plateau commonly known as the Southern Appalachians. This plateau attains its greatest width, of some 70 miles, in North Carolina, and has an average elevation of about 3 000 ft. It includes 275 peaks that exceed 5 000 ft. in height, and 36 summits of over 6 000 ft., among them Mount Mitchell, which is the highest point east of the Rockies, and the oldest land on the continent.
