Early in the history of the development of the alternating current (AC) generator it was recognized that there might be losses present under load conditions in addition to the no-load losses and the armature copper loss due to load current. Because no one had a satisfactory means of measuring this loss it was not included in the early definitions of conventional efficiency. In 1913 papers were presented giving the results of carefully made input - output tests which tended to show that the… CONTINUE READING
