    In the problem of inductive coordination of power and communication systems, residual voltages and currents in the power lines are an important element; yet it is apparent that they are not, in general, well understood. Studies have been made, and others are under way by well-equipped organizations, which will add much to the data concerning them. In this paper the general principles which apply a...

    The study of physical and electrical characteristics of insulating materials is of growing importance to the electrical industry because of the ever-increasing potentials employed in electric enerating and distributing equipment. The particular problem presented in this paper it related to engineering practise because polarization and conduction both result in the conversion of electric energy int... View full abstract»

  • Abridgment of surge voltage investigation on transmission lines

    Publication Year: 1928, Page(s):795 - 798
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1201 KB)

    This paper and companion papers discuss the surge voltage investigation on six power systems in the lightning season of 1927. Valuable data have been secured as to the nature and polarity, magnitude, wave-front and attenuation of surges; also the effect of overhead ground wires, choke coils, and lightning arresters. Of special interest is the attenuation formula A = k e2, the for... View full abstract»

  • Abridgment of gas-filled thermionic tubes

    Publication Year: 1928, Page(s):798 - 803
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1662 KB)

    This paper describes a fundamental principle of thermionic gas tube operation, by which cathode disintegration may be entirely avoided; and a new type of cathode which requires much less heat energy than any hitherto used. With these improvements hot cathode gas tubes appear to be practical, and their fundamental characteristics as lamps, rectifiers, and “thyratrons” are briefly desc... View full abstract»

    The paper gives first a brief history of the series of improvements to better operating conditions over the Cascade Range which have been undertaken by the Great Northern Railway since the line was put in operation in 1893. The paper next gives (Part II) a description and the principal operating characteristics of the motor-generator type of locomotives now in service on the electrified section fr...

  • Abridgment of the electrolytic zinc plant of the Sullivan Mining company

    Publication Year: 1928, Page(s):808 - 811
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1364 KB)

    This paper describes the recently constructed electrolytic zinc plant of the Sullivan Mining Company, located near Kellogg, Idaho. The first unit which has just been completed has a capacity of 50 tons of slab zinc per day. Provision has been made for two additional units which will bring the capacity up to 150 tons per day. The “Tainton-Pring” electrolytic process, which uses strong... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the history of the operating experience and surge voltage recorder data for the years 1926 and 1927, on the first 220-kv. line in the east. The system of the Pennsylvania Power & Light Company is described. Lightning weather data, design characteristics of the 220-kv. line involved, and details of connection and installation of surge voltage recorders are given. The stud... View full abstract»

  • Abridgment of heat flow from underground electric power cables

    Publication Year: 1928, Page(s):817 - 820
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1256 KB)

    The heat resistance of the soil surrounding underground cable ducts is usually large, and the path of the heat through the soil is not simple, especially when there are several adjacent ducts. This heat resistance and the path of the heat flow may be determined graphically, but except in the simpler cases, this method becomes very difficult. The heat resistance of any one of several ducts can be c... View full abstract»

    Variable speed drive for ring spinning frames, used in making yarns, has many advantages provided the driving mechanism has certain suitable characteristics. In this paper, the conditions which must be met are outlined, and it is shown that the most satisfactory method of drive is by means of the a-c., three-phase, shunt-characteristic, brush-shifting variable-speed motor.

    In 1777, one hundred and fifty-one years ago, Dr. George Christoph Lichtenberg, Professor of Physics in the University of Göttingen, observed that under certain conditions an electric discharge produced curious and strangely beautiful figures. Lichtenberg's apparatus and circuit arrangement were very simple and can readily be reproduced. Place a pane of glass on a metal plate connected thro... View full abstract»
