    In recent years, as never before in history, whole platoons of engineers and scientists have together “ridden the waves” of expanding electrotechnology. The experience has been exciting and rewarding. Their careers (and, for the most part, their salaries) have crested with the waves. But many are finding themselves in the troughs, or even worse, on the beach. What is the reason, and what can be do... View full abstract»

    On December 13, 1973, the Federal Energy Office (FEO) — now the Federal Energy Administration (FEA) — issued a fact sheet on national energy conservation that called for the reduction of lighting in all commercial and industrial buildings, including retail establishments, factories, and offices. The nonmandatory guidelines specified lighting levels of 50 footcandles at workstations, 30 footcandles... View full abstract»

    Describes the project of Inga hydroelectric power station, situated 170 kilometers inland from the Atlantic and 460 kilometers west of Kinshasa. It is planned to utilise the maximum runoff of the Zaire River system. The design for terminal convertor stations, overvoltage protection of HVDC equipment and the dimensions of the development are described. View full abstract»

    In early September of this year in Michigan City, Indiana, I met, for the first time, William Crawford Eddy, a man known to me previously only by reputation. Who is William Crawford Eddy? To me, and to thousands of others like roe who were trained as electronics technicians in the U.S. Navy during World War II under the Eddy programs, he will always be Captain Eddy. To thousands of others who, ove... View full abstract»
