    The single-phase high-pressure trolley has arrived and evidently has come to stay. The advantages gained by delivering energy directly to a car without the necessity of an investment in synchronous converters and heavy feeders has long been recognized. That it is entirely practicable to take current from a high-pressure conductor by means of a moving contact has been fully demonstrated. It has req... View full abstract»

  • High-pressure line construction for alternating — Current railways

    The chief advantage to be derived from the direct application of the alternating current to railway service is in the use of high trolley-pressures. Having a successful alternating-current motor, the remaining problem of greatest importance is the method of supplying current to the car. The third rail, which is largely used in heavy railway work, is obviously unsuited for carrying 3000, 6000, or 1... View full abstract»

  • On track bonding

    In the earliest days of electric-railway work with crude apparatus and light loads, track resistance was neglected. As the need became evident, auxiliary return wires were run and connected to the rails at frequent intervals, but of a size which now seems absurdly small. Joint bonds were first of small iron wire like railroad signal-system bonds, then pieces of copper wire with the ends riveted in... View full abstract»

    F. B. Crocker: At the Philadelphia meeting of the Institute in May, 1894, the speaker read a paper entitled “Unipolar Dynamos for Electric Light and Power.” It received little encouragement then and there has been very little since that time. The present paper is therefore welcome, as it is the first ray of hope in 11 years for the successful development of a machine of this type. Th... View full abstract»

    President Lieb: The paper by Mr. Moultrop on “Modern Central Station Design,” brings us face to face with a problem which has been before us these 20 odd years. It will not be a loss of time to consider for a moment the progress which has taken place in central station development, and in order to place this before you the speaker will abstract some of the data and some of the conclu...
