Owing to the upgraded transfer ca- pabilities of the parallel high-voltage alternating current intertie that were provided by this control, substantial eco- nomic benefits were felt throughout the western region. Wiley; Volume 1 edition September 10, Language: Didn’t find what you’re looking for?

Used book in good condition. Best of all, it’s free. In this respect a homopolar line is preferable to a bipolar tine in cases where continuai ground current is. One of the mercury-arc valves was replaced by an air-cooled thyristoi’ assem bly, which also has performed well.

He was instrumental in securing accreditation of the school by the Engineering Council for Professional Development in Unfortunately, this book can’t be printed from the OpenBook. On his return to the United States, Dr. Norrnally they operate at equal current; then there is no ground current. Kimbark and his wife Iris, who survives him, shared an avid interest in cultural affairs. The National Academies Press.

Shows some signs of wear, and may have some markings on the inside. Figure la shows a single-eircuit three-phase ac line.

Present-day mereury-are valves for high-voltage transmission, known as excitrons, have, in addition to the anode and the mercury-pool cathode, an ignition electrode for starting the arc, one or more excitation electrodes for maintaining the are, and a control grid that prevents the are from reaching the anode until it is desired that the valve begin to conduct.

Plans have been announced for doubling the voltage and power on the existing cable by the addition of a new thyristor valve group to each terminal, thereby doubling the voltage.

Are you a frequent reader or book collector? There he developed and guiclect the use of a large network analyzer that was used to plan for system power flow and stability. Perhaps an additional belief was that there was no future in dc transmission. To search the entire text of this book, type in your search term here and press Enter. If a permanent fault occurred on the lower conductor, the converters connected to it would be controlled so as crrent bring the voltage and current on it to zero.

Valves for HV dc transmission are invariably of single-phase eonstruction, in contrast to the polyphase valves with mercury-pool cathode formerly used extensively in low-voltage rectifiers for industrial and railway application.

Constant-current operation was chosen because the hot-cathode tubes then used couId not withstand the high short-circuit currents expected to occur on a constant-voItage system. Intermediate generation raises the stability limit of the link. In fair condition, suitable as a study copy. More tools Find sellers with multiple copies Add to want list.

The breakers are required, however, for clearing faults transmixsion the transformers or for taking the whole dc link out of service.

Clearly he will be out of date on some of the kimbaro electronic topics but there are many topics, such as HVDC electrodes, where most newer texts simply cite this book and don’t even try to improve upon what he has to say.
