  • Operating the hanford reactors

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):951 - 956
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1915 KB)

    A considerable amount of valuable information has been obtained as the result of 13 years' operating experience at Hanford. This article, after a brief plant description, discusses personnel requirements, operating procedures, and maintenance problems of a Hanford reactor. The items covered are indicative of the types of problems to be faced by the managers of future nuclear power plants. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (282 KB)

    PROPER VOLTAGE regulation is now becoming an increasingly important factor in efficient operation of electric power distribution systems. The degree to which a voltage regulator performs its function on these systems depends upon the accuracy and reliability of its controls. Because of fluctuating voltage conditions on most systems, the voltage-regulating and time-delay elements of the controls ar... View full abstract»

  • The economics of component parts selection

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):958 - 962
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1223 KB)

    A prerequisite for the best equipment to suit a particular requirement is a thorough knowledge of the economics, selection, application, and performance of component parts. Other factors that affect equipment reliability — engineering costs, rating of component parts, customer losses — are discussed along with a working formula for determining the cost of a part.

    Varied experiments proposed for the earth satellite require a very flexible telemetering system designed for maximum reliability and minimum weight and operating power requirements. A new instrumentation technique combining square hysteresis loop magnetic cores with switching transistors is discussed in the description of the magnetic telemetry encoding system.

  • The digital computer and power system short-circuit calculations

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):981 - 983
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1425 KB)

    Precalculation of short-circuit currents is necessary in order to provide effective protection of power systems against possible short circuits. A method for determining these currents by means of a digital computer is described. Among its advantages are speed, accuracy, and the ability to be operated without highly trained professional personnel. View full abstract»

    Various breakdown phenomena of air insulation have been encountered in the development of an air-insulated air-blast breaker. Methods used in the location, analysis, and correction of the breakdown are described. The use of insulating material in conjunction with high-pressure air is covered briefly. View full abstract»

    FOR THE MANY YEARS that statistical quality control procedures have been used by the Western Electric Company in its manufacturing processes, an audit has also been made which is, in reality, a statistical evaluation of the completed telephone product being shipped from the manufacturing plants. This audit is termed “quality assurance” in the Western Electric Company. Data thus gathe... View full abstract»

  • Internal corona spaces in cables

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s): 989
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (258 KB)

    IN THE DEVELOPMENT of high-voltage cables insulated with thermoplastics or rubber, it is necessary to measure the corona onset voltage. The manometric method detects internal corona by the decrease in air pressure caused by absorption of corona-activated oxygen. The rate of pressure drop increases rapidly with voltage. By connecting a capillary oil manometer to the sample, this pressure drop can b... View full abstract»

    Numerous problems are involved in setting up definitive performance tests for cathode-ray tubes. The need is emphasized for absolute quantitative methods of evaluating focus problems in these tubes. In addition, those characteristics which are unique to color tubes and which present the most problems to the set designer are discussed. View full abstract»
