Page 335 - ... are correctly employed, and a general statement of the principles of electrical science on which the definition is founded. Each of the great classes or divisions of electrical investigation or utilization comes under careful and exhaustive treatment ; and while close attention is given to the more settled and hackneyed phraseology of the older branches of work, the newer words and the novel departments they belong to are not less thoroughly handled. Every source of information has been referred...

Page 341 - O. This is the first work yet written in any language dealing in a complete and logical manner with all of the phenomena of alternating currents and their calculation in the design of alternating-current machinery. In the first six chapters the various primary conceptions and methods of treatment are developed, the use of complex quantities being explained in a remarkably clear and effective manner. The various alternating-current phenomena are then taken up in turn and the more complex parts of...
Page 335 - The dictionary is not a mere word-book ; the words, terms, and phrases are invariably followed by a short, c»ncise definition, giving the sense in which they are correctly employed, and a general statement of the principles of electrical science on which the definition is founded.

Page 343 - Fair and those in the largest and most modern central-stations, a complete and entirely practical method of dynamo-calculations is developed. Differing from the usual text-book methods, in which the application of the various formulas requires more or less experience in dynamo-design, the present treatise gives such practical information in the form of original tables and formulas derived from the result of practical machines of American as well as European make, comprising all the usual types of...
