The Wind Power Pioneers

The Wind Power Story: A Century of Innovation that Reshaped the Global Energy Landscape, None

In the twenty‐first century, wind power is a big deal. It is such an important part of the global energy landscape today in the twenty‐first century that people almost take it for granted. James Blyth would be the first in a long list of distinguished wind power innovators that were a step ahead of their contemporaries. Around the same time ...


Application of storage batteries to regulation of alternating-current systems

Proceedings of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1908

The general function of a storage battery in connection with an alternating- current system is the same as in a direct-current system, namely, to relieve the power plant and in some cases the transmission lines of the fluctuations of load, permitting the generating machinery and conductors to be utilized to the greatest advantage and at maximum economy by subjecting them ...

  • The Wind Power Pioneers

    In the twenty‐first century, wind power is a big deal. It is such an important part of the global energy landscape today in the twenty‐first century that people almost take it for granted. James Blyth would be the first in a long list of distinguished wind power innovators that were a step ahead of their contemporaries. Around the same time that Blyth, Mr. Charles F. Brush, and Poul la Cour were experimenting with wind power, electric power systems were beginning to take shape in the United States and Europe. No history of the electric power industry would be complete without mentioning George Westinghouse. Westinghouse was an inventor and engineer who gained his first patent at the age of nineteen. In the first decades of the twentieth century, wind power innovators would have to find ways to provide electricity to rural consumers that were out of reach of the electric transmission system.

  • Application of storage batteries to regulation of alternating-current systems

    The general function of a storage battery in connection with an alternating- current system is the same as in a direct-current system, namely, to relieve the power plant and in some cases the transmission lines of the fluctuations of load, permitting the generating machinery and conductors to be utilized to the greatest advantage and at maximum economy by subjecting them to a steady load equal to the average, instead of a load whose fluctuations in some instances, as in heavy interurban railway work and in many industrial plants, are exceedingly rapid and severe. In many cases where alternating currents are developed, the advantages of a regulating storage battery are even more pronounced than in direct-current service, for the following reasons: 1. Alternating-current generation is particularly applicable to long distance interurban railway work where steam railroad conditions prevail, involving heavy units operating at comparatively infrequent intervals, producing fluctuations of load abnormally high as compared with the average. These conditions are comparable, except on a largely magnified scale, with those obtaining on the four or five car electric roads so common in the early history of electric railways.

  • Research on pulse oscillating circuit of turn-to-turn over-voltage test for reactors

    In order to discuss the operational feasibility of the test, analyses and experiments on the pulse oscillating circuit are carried out in this paper. The studies indicate that, under the same voltage, as gap of controllable discharging is larger than that of natural discharging, the trigger can be used to control the working state of the sphere gap, in repeatedly discharge condition and stable pulse oscillating voltage would be acquired. Research results show that the controllable spark-discharge technique is necessary and feasible to ensure the implementation of the turn-to-turn over-voltage test on dry-type air-core reactors.

  • Protective networks for high voltage power supplies for pulsed power loads

    We are reporting on a comprehensive study on protective de-coupling networks for High Voltage (HV) pulsed power charging supplies. Typically HV power supplies charge large capacitor banks [1, page 3], [2, page 4], which are rapidly discharged into a pulsed power load. Even during a normal discharge, this can put severe stress on the power supply if it is not properly decoupled from the load. A fault at the load capacitor such as a flashover resulting in a ringing discharge with voltage reversal would put even more stress on the power supply, since the load capacitor could discharge through the rectifier diodes in forward direction. In such a case the output rectifier of the power supply could be instantaneously destroyed. Protective networks between the power supply and the load can prevent such damage but may limit the efficiency as well as the available power output and rep-rate of the HV power supply. We are reporting on a number of protective networks including combinations of resistors, inductors, and diodes that can be placed between the output of the power supply and the load. We are also considering the effects of parasitics and the surge I2t action integral [3, Page 20] of the output rectifiers of the power supply to arrive at guidelines for optimal system protection.

  • Study on atmospheric-pressure diffuse discharge with a double-pins-to-plane gap in repetitive modes

    Summary form only given. Nanosecond pulsed generator can generate large-area homogeneous and low temperature plasmas at atmospheric pressure, which has attracted much attention1, 2. In this paper, a home made repetitive nanosecond-pulse generator, which is based on magnetic compression system, is used to produce diffuse discharges in a double-pins-to-plane gap. The output voltage has a rise time of ~70 ns and a full width at half maximum of ~100 ns. The characteristics of diffuse discharge are investigated by measuring the voltage-current waveforms and taking the discharge images. The experimental results show that a proper distance between the double pins for a better performance of the diffuse discharge is 8 mm. The diffuse discharge will transit to corona or spark mode with increasing or decreasing the amplitude of applied voltage in atmospheric-pressure air. Furthermore, the conduction current, the instantaneous power and the energy per pulse are calculated. The corresponding results show that the conduction current behaves unipolar and current amplitude is larger than the displacement current. The instantaneous power could reach tens of kilowalts. In addition, the pulse energy per pulse ranges from 2.34 to 4.45mJ in the experiments.

  • Mode transitions in low-pressure nitrogen RF-CCP at different frequencies

    Summary form only given. Low-pressure (p≈103-1Torr) capacitively coupled RF plasmas are mostly used in material processing [1]. Different parametrical conditions in the plasma are preferred by different applications. High density plasmas in gamma mode are ideal for etching applications while stabile plasmas in gamma mode are more convenient for sputtering applications [2]. Therefore, it is better to characterize the plasma before process to get more efficient results.This study reports mode transition points in low-pressure capacitively coupled pure nitrogen RF plasma driven at 13.56 MHz and 40.68 MHz. The plasma was ignited in a home-made (500 u 400 mm2) stainless steel cylindrical reactor. Distance between the identical (200 mm in diameter) electrodes was set to 40 mm [3, 4]. Moreover, L-type automatic matching network system was connected to the 40.68 MHz RF generator to get high accuracy while matching system of 13.56 MHz was perched in its generator. In addition, the pure (99.995 %) nitrogen was selected as an activation gas because there is not a strong work about mode characterization of nitrogen gas, although it has a remarkable impact in plasma processing applications. Mode transition analyses were done according to diagnostic results that were obtained by Impedans Langmuir single and double probe systems. Pressure and power dependence of electron conduction current density, electron density and electron energy (or temperature) were investigated to determine mode transition points. These investigations revealed that a smooth alpha to gamma transition was observed at 0.1 Torr pressure in 13.56 MHz nitrogen plasma at whereas a sharp one was seen at 0.3 Torr pressure in 40.68 MHz nitrogen plasma. Also, at these pressures, another transition point (from gamma to alpha) was noticed with 150 Watt critical RF power in both plasmas. In conclusion, heating mode transition pressure of the low frequency RF-CCP is lower than that of the high frequency RF-CCP. On the other hand, RF power shows the same effect in both RF plasmas.

  • A continuous-current generator for high voltage

    Of all electro-dynamic machines, the direct-current machine probably is the best understood. It was the first machine to be commercially utilized and it is an interesting matter from an engineering standpoint to follow the evolution which this type of machine has passed through. The first great improvement to be incorporated in this type of machine was the application of commutating poles. As is the case in any radical development, engineering opinion was much divided as to the usefulness of such a construction. At first it was held that commutating poles were only useful where the service was severe, as, for example, in adjustable speed motors covering a large speed range. Today, however, it is well realized that commutating poles are advantageous in all kinds of direct-current machines, except in very small machines of fractional horse power output. It is well understood in the art that commutating poles alone do not offer a perfect solution of the direct- current problem, since there exists in such machines troublesome flux distortions. Many attempts have been made to overcome this by aid of distributed windings, and in this paper is described a form of such windings, which have given excellent results both from an operating and an economical standpoint. This distributed winding consists of two parts, one of which may be considered a counterpart of the armature, and is called a compensating winding. This winding opposes the armature reaction in every point around the circumference and effectively prevents any distortion of the flux. There is also a second winding for supplying the excitation and as is described in the paper, this winding is also distributed. By aid of such field windings, it is possible to meet very extreme conditions of service, for example, as is met with in high-voltage machines. In the machine that is described, the voltage between bars runs up to about 100 volts, or nearly four times the conventional value; nevertheless, the commutation is perfect. Machines rated 15 kw. have been built successfully up to 15,000 volts. One of the mechanical difficulties in building high-voltage, direct-current machines lies in the building of the commutator. A novel type of commutator is described in the paper. This commutator construction provides simple means for holding the segments together, and at the same time secures high insulation qualities.

  • A suggested instrument and procedure to determine corona degradation

    Under normal circumstances an insulating media contains at least a few free electrons. If these electrons happen to be in an area of high voltage stress (or gradient) they can be accelerated to velocities which are sufficient to dislodge electrons from neutral molecules with which they collide. Positive ions and more free electrons are thereby produced and the latter are available to ionize still more neutral molecules. This chain reaction, or avalanche, gives rise to a large number of free electrons and ions existing in a turbulent condition called corona. An excellent tutorial paper on this subject was presented at the 1962 EI Conference(l). This and other papers(2,3) make clear that the effect of corona in shortening insulation life has been recognized for some time. However, the mechanism by which corona degradates insulation is not completely understood. It has been variously ascribed to ionic bombardment, electron bombardment, ozone attack, and localized heating(4).

  • Electrotechnical control and current protection system of the high-voltage pulse-current generator

    The current monitoring objectives in the discharge circuit of the pulse- current generator for the pulse-discharge technologies were analyzed. The designed control and current protection system of the 4-channel pulse-current generator performs the real time reaction on the appearance of the idle discharges and the short-circuit mode, stores the numbers of the nominal and idle discharges, and, during the short-circuit mode, blocks and turns off the generator. The system simulation and testing of the experimental prototype were successfully performed.

  • Experimental and computational investigation for a household tri-generation with HES system

    Tri-generation (electricity, heating, cooling) describes all energy generation systems that utilise recoverable waste heat for space heating, cooling, and domestic hot water purposes. Tri-generation is broadly considered as an alternative for the world to meet and solve energy-related problems, such as increase in energy demands and costs, energy supply security, and reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Diverse research on how to implement and utilise tri-generation system efficiently and effectively is booming at present. However, it is rarely reported in terms of the important relationship between efficiency improvement of tri-generation system and the reasonable utilisation of electrical energy in it. This paper discussed the reasons why the hybrid energy storage (HES) should be integrated into tri-generation system to promote its performance. And then an initial investigation of HES was carried out where, novel electrical storage components were employed to facilitate energy storage system which is regarded as a crucial part of tri-generation system. Furthermore, the performance of electrical energy storage and power supply subsystem was tested both in initial experimentation and simulation. The fact verified that innovative HES can promote the dynamics and improve the efficiency of tri-generation.
