  • Effects of negative ion space charge formation on nonuniform air gaps

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):710 - 716
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1446 KB)

    A modified a-c streamer theory is set forth on the basis of established d-c theory, taking into account the various effects of negative ion space charge formation. The theory is found to be useful in describing electrical breakdown phenomena in nonuniform gaps that are excited with a-c potentials View full abstract»

    Process lines often require external heating to overcome viscosity problems and to facilitate the pumping and transmission of heavy liquids. Both steam and electric tracing are commonly employed, but the emphasis in this article is on the latter technique, which has the advantages of superior adaptability and greater ease of control View full abstract»

    Two methods are discussed for controlling line-charging kilovars and voltages on a lightly loaded 345-kv system. One method utilizes shunt reactors while the other takes advantage of underexcited capabilities of modern turbine-generators utilizing appropriate control. The conclusion, supported by experience, favors the underexcited operation in this situation View full abstract»

    The term Centrex is well known in the telephone industry as a designation of a dial PBX system providing certain new features and services. The name and original concept suggest centrally located equipment to serve a plurality of customers. This concept has been broadened to include other than centrally located installations when the same services are provided on the customer's premises View full abstract»

    In the process of performing many staged-system tests, some involving short-circuit currents as high as 45,000 amperes and voltages of 230 kv, the Bonneville Power Administration has developed techniques for recording fast-rise voltages and currents associated with such tests. Various recording systems are described. Of particular interest is a high-speed 35-mm moving-film type of camera capable o... View full abstract»

    Mohole is the National Science Foundation's program to drill through the earth's crust under the ocean and into the unknown mantle below that is known as the Mohorovic Discontinuity. The drilling may take three years. By a system of controls, the drilling platform (mounted on stilts above pontoons that look a little like submarines) must be held almost directly above the hole to be drilled. View full abstract»

    Signals from a satellite are being transmitted with electricity from a nuclear power source developed by the Atomic Energy Commission. The Department of Defense satellite was launched recently from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., by a Thor-Able-Star missile. The nuclear device is the SNAP-9A, the third lightweight radioisotope-fueled thermoelectric generator to be used in a satellite. The first... View full abstract»

    Recently demonstrated for the U.S. Air Force was a three-element fuel-cell battery capable of operation in a space environment. The small prototype unit produces slightly more than two watts from three fuel cells weighing only if, ounce and occupying % cubic inch of space. At this power output, the battery delivers 150 watts per pound and operates at electrolyte current of 780 amperes per square f... View full abstract»
