    Blondel treated salient pole machines by resolving the fundamental space component of m. m. f. along the two axes of symmetry the direct axis of the pole, and the quadrature axis between poles. Using this idea and applying harmonic analysis, Blondevs theory has been extended in the present paper to a comprehensive system of treatment in which the effect of harmonic m. m. fsy as well as the fundame...

    Heretofore the subject of universal motors has not received very much publicity but the field for these motors has been increasing so rapidly that a great deal more attention is now being given to them. The paper endeavors to bring out points of general interest rather than going into the fundamental design and other details. The term “universal” as applied to this type of motor is d...

    The most obvious method for determining the distortion of telegraph signals is to calculate the transients of the telegraph system. This method has been treated by various writers, and solutions are available for telegraph lines with simple terminal conditions. It is well known that the extension of the same methods to more complicated terminal conditions, which represent the usual terminal appara... View full abstract»

    An equation is developed for use in meeting emergency conditions which necessitate the paralleling of transformer banks whose impedances expressed in percentage are not equal. This equation makes it possible to calculate what change should be made in the ratio of transformation of the bank with the lower percentage impedance in order to prevent its being overloaded when the total load approaches t...

    The design features and performance characteristics of salient-pole synchronous motors are well known and have been thoroughly covered in the technical press. The synchronous motor has been handicapped in the past because it is inherently a single-speed machine, and a change in speed could be obtained only by a change in the frequency of the power supply. Changing the frequency, however, is not pr... View full abstract»

    A brief review is given of the literature on conduction through insulators. Every dielectric has a definite resistivity when the potential gradient is below a certain value, different for each substance. If the potential gradient is continually increased, a point is reached where an increase in voltage does not affect the current. This is called the saturation current. With still greater potential...

    In the following pages, electrical machinery is analyzed from a new point of view.

    This paper was written to review and extend the theory of overvoltages due to the arcing grounds because of the increasing tendency to use impedances between the neutral point and the ground, thereby losing the advantage of the solidly grounded neutral.

    Many transformers are now being designed for service with one end of the high-voltage winding solidly grounded. These transformers require an over potential test by induced voltage of either 2.73 or 8.46 times their normal line voltage above ground plus 1000 volts. These tests must be made at more than normal frequency, to avoid too high a flux density in the core, and also to reduce the power req... View full abstract»

    There seems to be a certain amount of uncertainty among authors as to just what is a correct definition of resonance in a parallel circuit such as shown of Fig. 1. The most common definition is that resonance is that condition which makes the total reactance, or susceptance, equal to zero. This is the condition for unity power factor. In some definitions the further condition is added that at reso... View full abstract»

    This paper shows that humidity affects considerably the flashover voltages of porcelain and PYREX insulators. The flashover potential rises as the humidity is increased. The tests were made on pin-type insulators and on rods. The results show that this rising characteristic is a surface effect which varies with the absolute water content of the surrounding atmosphere. View full abstract»

    The designer of motors for locomotive service is confronted with at least two limitations; space and weight. For large locomotives, the second limitation may not be of prime importance, but the first must be constantly in the mind of the designer. The paper gives a comparison between different types of motor mounting as regards the amount of power which may be developed in the available space with... View full abstract»

    The usual understanding of the relationship between electrophysics and electrical engineering is that physicists discover facts and laws, develop methods of measurement, determine various constants, propose and work out in detail mathematical theories and hypotheses, etc., while electrical engineers later apply some of these valuable facts and theories to the design, construction, and operation of...

    R. Treat: The device which was developed by Mr. Wilkins, appeals to me as being applicable to investigations of other similar problems. It appears to be a very simple, and it is hoped, reliable device which may be used for determining among other things, the pressures in the interior of oil circuit breakers at the time of opening the circuit and the stresses which are brought to bear upon bus insu...

    The paper describes tests on a transmission line of the Consumers Power Company, using a portable million-volt impulse generator. Data were secured on attenuation with one, two, and three conductors in parallel, with and without ground wires. A study was made of the influence of ground wires in reducing voltages induced by overhead discharging clouds, and also the effect on surges of entering or l... View full abstract»
