    A microscopic model for the electrostatic spraying system is presented to investigate the effect of the voltage applied to the induction nozzle on the droplet's charge, mobility, and charge-to-mass ratio. The variation of these parameters along the jet was also included. The model also lays particular emphasis on the effect of the applied voltage on the spray current and the charge density at the ...

    Procedures governing medium- and high-voltage breaker application, although conceptually tractable, tend to be repetitive for large systems. Hand calculations can become quite laborious when assessing safety margins of installed switchgear on systems that have experienced sudden growth. This article describes how a computer can be used as an efficient tool to address these concerns. The discussion... View full abstract»

    This article results from the experience of installing a number of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems for various projects. It attempts to describe typical applications in a pulp and paper mill, determines how to evaluate whether a UPS system should be used, and suggests some alternative approaches to the problem. There are several types of UPS configurations available. Although rotating t... View full abstract»

    If protective devices and relays represent the ≫OPEN "nerves” of a medium- or high-voltage electric power system, the DC control battery distribution system represents the system's “bloodstream.” The battery distribution system delivers energy the battery provides to the control circuits of AC circuit breakers and other electrically operated interrupting equipment (the “...

    Charging batteries in electric vehicles needs to cover several aspects including electrical safety, the weight of an onboard charger, different types of chargers needed by different types of batteries, low line disturbance with high efficiency, and the influence of the charging process on the lifetime of the battery. Another important problem is the communication between the vehicle and the outsid... View full abstract»
