  • Stability study of A-C power-transmission systems

    Publication Year: 1942, Page(s):893 - 905
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3094 KB)

    FOR the operation of power-transmission systems of medium and long length, the problem of stability is becoming increasingly important. This is true in the steady state of the system as well as in the transient state, during and after the occurrence of a fault on the system. Since the design of the transmission system is primarily responsible for its proper operation, and since the a-c network ana... View full abstract»

  • Emergency overloading of air-cooled oil-immersed power transformers by hot-spot temperatures

    Publication Year: 1942, Page(s):906 - 915

    The paper points out that during the period of the war the need for obtaining maximum transformer overload capacity is very great, particularly under rare emergency conditions. From a thermal standpoint, the amount of overload is limited by the hottest spot in the transformer winding. To obtain accurate data 1. On the actual hot-spot temperature s under rated load conditions 2. On the increase of ... View full abstract»

  • Induced voltages on transmission lines

    ABOUT the year 1929 it first became appreciated that the lightning discharge is not instantaneous. The recognition of this fact had a profound influence upon the theories of lightning protection, the emphasis being diverted from induced to direct strokes1 as the agent to be guarded against. With the meager information then available the calculations indicated that induced voltages were ... View full abstract»

  • Load ratings of cable — II

    Since the author's 1939 paper,1 further data have been obtained regarding the loading of underground power systems having impregnated-paper-insulated lead-covered underground cable. The results of the studies may be summarized as follows: 1. The factors affecting the setting of maximum safe conductor temperatures are so numerous that no fixed value (or values) can be assumed as applicab... View full abstract»

  • Factors which influence the behavior of directional relays

    Publication Year: 1942, Page(s):942 - 952
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2343 KB)

    Very little material dealing with the factors (such as network dissymmetries) which lead to incorrect operation of directional relays has appeared in the technical literature. Practical experience has been the guide as to the relative merits of the 12 possible connections which utilize either line-to-neutral or line-to-line voltages and line currents or the differences of line currents to actuate ...

  • The combination of probability curves in engineering

    Publication Year: 1942, Page(s):953 - 962

    ENGINEERS are quite familiar with simple probability distributions showing the relative likelihoods of occurrence of the different values which a varying physical or electrical quantity may assume. As the complexities of machines and circuits in modern design increase, it becomes highly desirable to be able to estimate the probability distribution resulting from the joint presence of two or more s...

  • Series capacitors for transmission circuits

    Publication Year: 1942, Page(s):963 - 973
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2828 KB)

    This paper presents the results of an analytical and experimental investigation of the use of series capacitors to increase the permissible loadings of long high-voltage a-c transmission lines. Because of limitations imposed by synchronous stability and reactive kilovolt-ampere requirements, conventional lines, when extended to the higher voltages and greater lengths, cannot be loaded to values of...
