Electric potential

In classical electromagnetism, the electric potential (denoted by φ, φE or V; also called the electrostatic potential) at a point in space is the electric potential energy divided by charge associated with a static (time-invariant) electric field. (Wikipedia.org)

Observation of harmonics in current and in voltage wave shapes of transformers

Proceedings of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1910

Introduction Ever since Professor Ryan presented his famous paper on “Transformers” before the Institute, in which attention was called to the lack of symmetry between curves of instantaneous values of current and potential applied to the transformer, numerous writers have discussed the subject from various view points.

Proceedings of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1913

The paper gives a brief outline of some of the important developments in oil circuit breakers which have taken place within the last two or three years. Ideal conditions require that the current should not reestablish itself after passing the first zero value following the opening of the contacts, and this emphasizes the value of high opening speed in a ...

The development of the one-phase railway motor leads to the introduction of grounded alternating-current systems, in which the current is returned over the rail. With rail-return, necessarily more or less current strays through the ground, reaching gas and water pipes, lead cables, etc. When using direct current for railroading, lead cables, etc. are protected against electrolytic corrosion by connecting them ...

  • Notes on oil circuit breakers for large powers and high potentials

    The paper gives a brief outline of some of the important developments in oil circuit breakers which have taken place within the last two or three years. Ideal conditions require that the current should not reestablish itself after passing the first zero value following the opening of the contacts, and this emphasizes the value of high opening speed in a circuit breaker. Breakers have been designed in which resistances were introduced to limit the current to a value readily ruptured, but as this principle is difficult of accomplishment, reactance has been successfully substituted for resistance. Reactance breakers have two sets of contacts, the main set which carries the normal current, and an auxiliary set which carries the reduced current after the reactance has been introduced by the opening of the main contacts. Breakers for any power and voltage, with all the usual methods of operation are now available.

  • Alternating-current electrolysis

    The development of the one-phase railway motor leads to the introduction of grounded alternating-current systems, in which the current is returned over the rail. With rail-return, necessarily more or less current strays through the ground, reaching gas and water pipes, lead cables, etc. When using direct current for railroading, lead cables, etc. are protected against electrolytic corrosion by connecting them to the negative terminal of the circuit, so that the stray current enters the cable from the ground, but does not leave it; that is, the cable is always at a negative potential against ground. With alternating currents this method of protection evidently is not feasible, since the potential difference constantly reverses.

  • Surges on a cable system with an aluminum surge protector: Experimental investigation of the surges on an underground alternating-current distribution system, and the protection by aluminum cells

    The investigations referred to later in this paper were begun by the authors early in the summer of 1908 and covered a period of from eight to ten weeks. The system of the United Electric Light & Power Company, of New York City, seemed particularly desirable for this class of investigation, as it is the largest alternating-current light and power system that is entirely underground and therefore subject to the particular class of phenomena treated by the paper; moreover, it is without the variations that might be encountered in a system having a part of its lines overhead.

  • Gaza Substation Grounding

    An investigation into the optimal design of a substation grounding system for the transmission substation in Gaza City, Palestine has been carried out. A research into the most influential parameters on the effectiveness of the substation grid system has been performed and its results have been incorporated into the Gaza case study. Through modelling and simulating the power station in Gaza while considering some field data, an optimal substation grounding grid has been designed and has shown complete conformance to safety. It is thus considered that such a design will protect personnel in any area of the substation in addition to the installed machinery if the largest possible fault current was to traverse the earth.

  • Probabilistic Potential Theory

    The equivalence of the steady-state wave and diffusion equations leads to a solution technique for electrostatics problems, sometimes called probabilistic potential theory (PPT). This technique relies on a random-walk game with a set of rules for play and scoring, while physical terms such as electric field, charge, or energy never appear. The random-walk procedure described in this chapter is an interesting but unsatisfying way to solve the finite difference Laplace equation. If this procedure were used over many points on a grid to determine the voltages at all these points, some of the voltages will definitely fall outside the confidence interval. The chapter then describes a procedure in which the diffusion equation is solved without resorting to random walks, or for that matter to random numbers at all. Another approach to a random-walk solution is to eliminate the grid entirely.

  • Numerical Analysis Method of Grounding

    This chapter introduces the numerical methods for parameters of substation grounding systems in uniform and multi‐layer soil, including grounding resistance, touch voltage, step voltage, mesh voltage, ground potential rise, and potential distribution on ground surface over grounding grid.
