    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...

    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»

    Stability may be defined as the capacity of a power system to remain in equilibrium under steady load conditions, and its ability to regain a state of equilibrium after a disturbance has taken place. The lack of stability first manifested itself in the cases of overloaded machines and high impedance tie lines.

    F. W. Peek, Jr.: Prof. Harding has given us some curves up to 500,000 volts on conductors good for operation at 220 kv. or less.

The difference on several of the conductors is, I believe, due to the fact that sphere gaps were used for voltage measurement.... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the necessity for standardizing voltages and advocates the utilization voltage as the most logical reference base.

    The capacitance, or electrostatic capacity, of conductors of various shapes has practically always been calculated by the “inverse method” of first assuming certain charges of electricity and from them calculating equi-potential lines and surfaces, which, in the more fortunate cases, agreed exactly with the shapes of the conductors.

    In recent years, much attention has been given to fire protection of turbo generators, resulting in a trend towards closed ventilating systems and the use of inert gas to smother combustion. Water-wheel type generators are not so well adapted to this method of protection.

    Porcelain insulators have been manufactured and used for the transmission of high-voltage electric power for forty years.

    A general equation is developed for the mechanical force exerted by a system of n electric circuits, upon any part of that system. The electric circuits are assumed to contain resistances, and the reluctance of the several magnetic circuits is assumed to be a function of both the currents and the relative positions of the circuits.

    This paper presents new and simplified formulas for the armature leakage reactance of synchronous machines, and compares the results obtained with tests on 100 machines of varied types. The new formulas are characterized by novel expressions for the end leakage and for the “air-gap” or “differential leakage” reactances. Formulas for zero phase-sequence reactances also a...

    Since wound-rotor induction motors with clutch brakes have been very commonly used for this application, a review of the operating conditions and safety requirements is given, in order to show why synchronous motors without clutches may be used for the same application. View full abstract»

    P. L. Alger: Mr. Boyajian's theory of three-circuit transformers applies to the induction motor as well as to the transformer. His three-circuit transformer is the same in theory as the double-squirrel-cage induction motor, and the same phenomenon of a negative reactance which occurs in his diagrams also occurs in the equivalent circuit of the motor.

    A report on a proposed American Standard for Graphical Symbols for Electric Power and Interior Wiring developed by a subcommittee of the Sectional Committee on Scientific and Engineering Symbols and Abbreviations was received at the December 13, 1929 meeting of the A. I. E. E. Standards Committee and was ordered printed in report form for distribution for purposes of criticism and suggestion. This... View full abstract»

    There are three methods of obtaining the flux distribution in a magnetic field. First: By test. Templates or models can be made of the field to be explored and the flux distribution can be obtained by test as described in a companion paper “Graphical Determination of Magnetic Fields — Comparison of Calculations and Tests” by Messrs. E. E. Johnson and C. H. Green. Second: By ma... View full abstract»
