Enclosed station wiring

Proceedings of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1907

In the design of a power station, the wiring is often given but scant consideration, and is fitted into such spaces as may be left over and not available for other purposes. In reality, a safe system of station wiring is as important as reliable machinery and should be given thorough consideration in making the plans of the building. Power ...


Progress in high-efficiency emitter-wrap-through cells on medium quality substrates

3rd World Conference onPhotovoltaic Energy Conversion, 2003. Proceedings of, 2003

One of the most promising cell concepts for high efficiencies on medium quality base material is the emitter-wrap-through (EWT) solar cell. We fabricated solar cells on 1.25 /spl Omega/ cm FZ and 1.4 /spl Omega/ cm Cz(B) material. The performance of EWT, rear contacted cells (RCC) and random- pyramids passivated emitter and rear cells (RP-PERC) on Cz-Si is compared. An ...

Focal spot without the nearest diffraction sidelobes

DIPED - 2001. Proceedings of 6th International Seminar/Workshop on Direct and Inverse Problems of Electromagnetic and Acoustic Wave Theory (IEEE Cat. No.01TH8554), 2001

The authors consider a one-dimensional radiated aperture with a quadratic phase front. The field distribution over the observation plane (a Fresnel area) is analysed. It is required to modify an initially uniform radiated field, so that the diffraction lobes are eliminated over some area of the observation plane. A wave beam from the radiated aperture is focused onto the observation ...

IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, 1992

An ion-drag pump in a vertical, axisymmetric configuration was built. Two pumping sections with 1 and 10 electrode pairs were constructed. The total length of the pumping loop with one electrode pair was 133.0 cm; with 10 electrode pairs it was 186.0 cm. The electrodes were designed from the fluid mechanics standpoint. The ions were injected into the fluid where ...

  • Enclosed station wiring

    In the design of a power station, the wiring is often given but scant consideration, and is fitted into such spaces as may be left over and not available for other purposes. In reality, a safe system of station wiring is as important as reliable machinery and should be given thorough consideration in making the plans of the building. Power houses have frequently been shut down by animals getting across the conductors and by materials accidentally coming in contact with them. Men working about a building may be killed or injured seriously by exposed electrical connections. Once started, it is impossible to say how much damage an arc will do with open wiring. In every case the service is likely to be interrupted.

  • Progress in high-efficiency emitter-wrap-through cells on medium quality substrates

    One of the most promising cell concepts for high efficiencies on medium quality base material is the emitter-wrap-through (EWT) solar cell. We fabricated solar cells on 1.25 /spl Omega/ cm FZ and 1.4 /spl Omega/ cm Cz(B) material. The performance of EWT, rear contacted cells (RCC) and random- pyramids passivated emitter and rear cells (RP-PERC) on Cz-Si is compared. An EWT efficiency of 18.7% on degraded Cz (/spl tau//sub b/<35 /spl mu/s, W=250 /spl mu/m) outperforms clearly the RCC (14.9%) and even the RP-PERC (18.1%). Spectral response measurements prove the very good collection efficiency of the EWT cells compared to RCC. The cell parameters V/sub oc/, j/sub sc/ and /spl eta/ of EWT and RCC are logged over the entire degradation process and can be fitted very well by a double exponential decay. The high potential for fill factor and therefore efficiency improvement is shown via Suns-V/sub oc/-measurements which indicate a series resistance free fill factor of more than 81%.

  • Focal spot without the nearest diffraction sidelobes

    The authors consider a one-dimensional radiated aperture with a quadratic phase front. The field distribution over the observation plane (a Fresnel area) is analysed. It is required to modify an initially uniform radiated field, so that the diffraction lobes are eliminated over some area of the observation plane. A wave beam from the radiated aperture is focused onto the observation plane. The field distribution represents a general diffraction picture with alternate light and dark bands. The receiving antenna (rectenna) in that plane catches a portion of the microwave radiation and transforms it into direct current.

  • An experimental investigation of ion-drag pump in a vertical and axisymmetric configuration

    An ion-drag pump in a vertical, axisymmetric configuration was built. Two pumping sections with 1 and 10 electrode pairs were constructed. The total length of the pumping loop with one electrode pair was 133.0 cm; with 10 electrode pairs it was 186.0 cm. The electrodes were designed from the fluid mechanics standpoint. The ions were injected into the fluid where the viscous shear stresses were the highest. The fluid used was dodecylbenzine, and all the experiments were conducted at 25 degrees C. Pumping velocities as high as 33.4 cm/s (corresponding mass flow rate of 1.1 kg/s and total pressure generation of 111.9 Pa) at 25 kV have been achieved. The highest pump power efficiency obtained was 6.0%. The effect of the electrical conductivity level of dodecylbenzine on the pump performance was also studied. Increasing the conductivity level reduced the pumping velocity.<<ETX>>

  • The Fundamental Design Approach of The RF-DC Conversion Circuit for Optimizing Its Characteristics

    A Rectifying Antenna (Rectenna) is one of the most important components for a wireless power transmission. It has been developed for many applications such as Space Solar Power System (SSPS), Radio Frequency IDentification (RF-ID), and electric vehicle etc. The Rectenna consisting of RF-DC conversion circuits and receiving antennas needs to be designed for high conversion efficiency to achieve efficient power transmission. In this paper, we investigated the RF-DC conversion circuits by the theoretical analysis. And, we propose the theoretical formula for calculating the output DC voltage in giving the input voltage. The result that is calculated by the formula agreed with the simulator's result, so, we confirmed the validity of the formula we derived. The theory and the formula we derived are useful in order to know the basic operation of the RF-DC conversion circuit, and to design the circuit efficiently.

  • Multiple-subcarrier optical communication systems with subcarrier signal point sequence

    We propose a multiple-subcarrier (MS) optical communication system with subcarrier signal point sequence (SSPS). We use the SSPS having the large minimum value and the large Euclidean distances, so that the required d.c. bias is minimized and the error rate performance is improved. Note that in the proposed systems, the signal points having the larger minimum value are selected, while the signal points having lower peak to mean envelope power ratio (PMEPR) are selected in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. Therefore, the signal point sequences good for OFDM with phase shifting by /spl pi/ radian are not necessarily good ones for MS optical communication systems. We show that the normalized power requirement and normalized bandwidth requirement of the MS-SSPS are smaller than those of the conventional MS systems.

  • Discharge phenomenon on solar array surface due to RF irradiation

    Space solar power system (SSPS) transfers enormous amount of electrical energy of microwave. As the microwave may diffract to solar array surface, there is concern of multipactor discharge caused by the microwave. There has been no experiment on interaction between high intensity microwave and solar array. The verification experiment is essential for SSPS to become a reality. We examined interaction between solar array surface and microwave in a vacuum chamber. We investigated a discharge phenomenon on the solar array surface that receives RF irradiation with 400W maximum power and 5.8GHz frequency generated by a magnetron. We observed discharge on solar array depending on the microwave strength and vacuum condition. The discharge occurred mostly at N-electrodes of solar cells that acted as an antenna as good as a dipole antenna. We calculated the distribution of electric field inside the chamber by finite difference time domain method

  • Oscillation Property of Rod-Type Nd/Cr:YAG Ceramic Lasers with Quasi-Solar Pumping
