A method of locating electric transmission line towers using
ground survey data in a digital computer program is presented in this
thesis. The towers are located for maximum spacing subject to the
constraints of available tower heights, forbidden ground areas, minimum
ground clearance, and specified conductor tensions. The digital
This thesis proposes a criteria for the evaluation of those variable
parameters that influence the response of a hydroelectric generator
driven by a hydraulic turbine of the Kaplan type. It is considered
a requirement that a unit must be stable when supplying an isolated
load and it is assumed that...
The comparative values of impedance and resistance to reactance
ratios are important parameters in determining the load
capacity of an interconnection of power transformer, called a bank.
The full design capabilities of parallel or three-phase connected
transformers cannot be utilized unless the following constraints are
1. All transformer voltage...
This simulation is a model for a tidal power-peaking plant that
can be used to determine the electrical peaking generation for a given
set of conditions.
The simulation internally contains a tide producing function
for a specific year, the hydraulic characteristics of the plant, and the
plant's machines' characteristics. The...
The three-phase squirrel-cage induction motor is rugged, compact,
inexpensive, can be totally enclosed and requires little maintenance.
Its use as a variable speed drive has been limited, however, by the
state-of-the art of control components.
The advent and continuing development of the silicon controlled
rectifier and associated solid-state components has...
