    The total output of Soviet electric stations at the beginning of 1968 was 135 million kW; by 1970 it is expected to reach 180 million kW. There are ten interconnected power systems in the country. The European Power Grid unites six of the systems, with a total power output of 68.5 million kW and covering a territory of 6 million km2 with a population of 160 million. Plans for the period to 1980 ca... View full abstract»

    The determinant of the salary that a man is paid for his services can involve many factors, both naturally and artificially evolved. The evaluation of a man's monetary value is particularly complex in the case of technical professionals whose product cannot easily be judged by clear-cut measures such as amount of sales made or runs batted in. In this article, data from a group of job applications ... View full abstract»

    It is no exaggeration that a kid on roller skates can propel himself crosstown, from the East River to the North River, on any of Manhattan's midtown streets in considerably less time than that required by a motorist. And we all have had the frustrating experience of spending more time in a bus between an airport and center city than in making the actual flight of 500 km or more. About five years ...

    Commercial-frequency currents of a few milliamperes flowing through the body will cause muscular contractions, resulting in the inability of the victim to release his grasp on a live conductor. Values of ``let-go'' current are very important criteria in the establishment of safe-current requirements. Since ventricular fibrillation, a condition in which circulation is arrested, is probably the most... View full abstract»

    The present scientific and technical world is one of complexity, magnitude, and rapid growth. In the face of such soaring progress, one subject has grown increasingly important and yet has remained somewhat of a mystery to people in the scientific and engineering community- that of ``trade secrets.'' Although, as a general rule, these people have some working knowledge and familiarity with the pat... View full abstract»

    A hybrid tantalum thin-film and beam-lead silicon device will be incorporated in the Bell System's Touch-Tone telephones of the future. This RC multifrequency audio oscillator will replace the LC device presently used in the Touch-Tone keyboards. The tuning process for the RC device requires that the tantalum thin-film resistors be custom adjusted to calculated values; and a tuning system driven b... View full abstract»

    The Pacific Northwest-Southwest Intertie is the largest single electric transmission development project ever undertaken in the United States. It will connect directly or indirectly the major systems of the federal government and public and private electrical systems in 11 western states, promoting a maximum of electrical efficiency. The benefits to these areas of the United States, and to the res... View full abstract»

  • An IC medium power voltage regulator

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):72 - 78
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4285 KB)

    This article describes a monolithic integrated-circuit voltage regulator for use in medium-power applications in the achievement of ``local'' or ``on-card'' regulation. Included are design features, an explanation of circuit's operation, a dc analysis, regulation analysis, performance characteristics, design rules and considerations, and selected applications.
