Page 160 - Kilovolt — One thousand volts. Kilowatt — One thousand watts. Kilowatt-hour — The amount of work equal to that performed by an activity of one kilowatt maintained steadily for one hour. An amount of work equal to 3,600,000 joules. One thousand watt-hours.
Page iii - been prepared with the object of rendering the principles of electric motors clear to those who are not specially trained in electrotechnics.
Page 134 - The reluctance of most substances is practically the same as that of air, and is not affected by the quantity of flux which passes through it.
