  • Atomic power in Ohio

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):1047 - 1051
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1208 KB)

    SINCE August 6, 1945, when the atom first burst on the world's consciousness with the bomb which rocked Hiroshima, the State of Ohio has contributed enormously to the development of the atom. Up to now, most of that development has had for its object a strengthening of our defenses. That continues to be of paramount importance. Yet we also continue to hope that the atom will justify the sweat and ... View full abstract»

  • Numerical solutions for temperature fields in electric coils

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s): 1052
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (469 KB)

    THE MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE electric loading of a coil is restricted by the allowable temperature rise in the coil cross section. In order to establish this peak loading, the designer must compute the maximum temperature or general temperature distribution that is peculiar to each new cross-section profile under design loading. A technique for computing these general temperature fields t(x, y) which c... View full abstract»

    It is inevitable that man in his progress of communications from talking, telephoning, aural and visual broadcasting by radio, should go back a bit to do something more than merely transmit intelligence. This is about a refinement: reproducing recorded sound more faithfully than heretofore. View full abstract»

  • Overload relays and circuit breakers for protecting motorized appliances and their branch circuits

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):1056 - 1060
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1011 KB)

    After presenting the causes of motor overheating, thermal overload relays are discussed with bimetal-type or solder-film types being preferred. Short-circuit protection then is examined and molded-case air circuit breakers are suggested for use with most domestic- and industrial-type branch circuits to which motorized appliances are to be connected.

    Mine-trailing-cable construction is discussed with the cables being divided into five groups having characteristically different construction. The four principal types of damage to these cables are given together with ways of identifying the damage and both preventive and remedial measures. View full abstract»

    Although 60-cycle alternating current is almost universally employed for lighting purposes in this country, fluorescent lamps can be operated more economically on higher frequencies and at the same time their light output and life are increased. View full abstract»

  • Noise and crosstalk control on N1 carrier systems

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):1075 - 1080
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1058 KB)

    The most important sources of noise system noise, secondary induction from telephone plant and external sources, and nonsoldered cable pair joints are discussed together with the methods of alleviating the trouble. Although control of crosstalk had been facilitated by the Nl system design, it still has to be dealt with in connection with transverse crosstalk, crosstalk in lateral cables, and inter...

  • A low-height 15-ton mine locomotive

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s): 1081
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (548 KB)

    WITH THE ADVENT of mechanical mining it has become possible to mine coal from seams formerly considered too narrow for practical working. As a result, locomotive designers had to produce a haulage locomotive, big enough to handle the production of coal in seams 30 to 42 inches high. Moreover, the locomotive must conform to the requirements for standard haulage-type locomotives as regards high cont... View full abstract»

  • Generator relaying for single-axis short circuits

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s): 1082
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (404 KB)

    FOR FEAR that overcurrent relays might trip off the unit on overload when it is needed most, generators are usually not provided with relays to respond to balanced external faults. This is satisfactory practice because balanced faults on the system can be tolerated by the generator for an appreciable time. However, experience now indicates that the more closely designed modern generators should be... View full abstract»

  • Economic factors of small-capacity hydroelectric stations

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):1083 - 1088
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1012 KB)

    The use of induction generators in semioutdoor plants, simple relay and water-wheel controls, and fully automatic features has reduced materially the plant investment, operating, and maintenance costs, thus making the use of small hydroelectric sites more desirable. The economic aspects of two actual induction generator plants are described. View full abstract»

  • Design of transformers for resistance welding machines

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):1088 - 1093
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1319 KB)

    A DISCUSSION OF transformer design and characteristics would have been a rather controversial subject 15 years ago, as in those days the name-plate kilovolt-ampere rating of the transformer meant little other than that it was printed in English. Oftentimes in the early years, if the power companies limited the maximum connected kilovolt-amperes for a particular installation, a machine was supplied... View full abstract»

    SUCCESSFUL USE of the transport helicopter in Korea and in the Canadian Rockies of British Columbia is focusing attention on the potentialities of this craft as a transport vehicle. With such successful operations in mind, a study was indicated of the feasibility of using a commercially available 8-passenger 1,500-pound payload-carrying transport helicopter for transmission-line maintenance and re...

  • Resistance bridge sensitivity and output formulas

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (323 KB)

    CONVENIENT FORMULAS for current and voltage in the detector branch of a resistance bridge are shown in Figures 1 to 3. These formulas are particularly useful for determining either the exact sensitivity of the balanced bridge or the approximate output of the unbalanced bridge where the unbalance is, in general, not greater than the order of 10 per cent. In either case, the user is assumed to be re... View full abstract»

    THE THEORY and practice involved in the economic scheduling of thermal plants, including the effects of transmission losses, has been well developed in recent years. This article presents a method for short-range optimum economic scheduling of a thermal-hydroelectric power system with transmission losses rigorously considered. View full abstract»

    THE CIRCUIT shown contains two saturable reactors with “square loop” cores. An alternating voltage is applied to their windings through rectifying diodes. During positive half-cycles of the supply voltage Vc the core flux of the converter stage rises from some preset value to saturation. Before “firing” only a small magnetizing current flows; after firing the... View full abstract»

    A PROTECTIVE DEVICE which the author has called a differential reactive current protection relay (DRCPR) was developed for use in an aircraft a-c electric system, as a solution to a number of problems associated with reactive load division. This protective device is equally applicable to any system of paralleled alternators with automatic voltage regulation. View full abstract»

    Design of band-pass impedance transforming filters is derived from Norton's1 equivalence between a dissymmetrical band-pass filter and a symmetrical section plus an ideal transformer. This equivalence is illqstrated for a T section in Figure 1. View full abstract»
