A review of some of the principal headings with an occasional comment will give a rapid survey of the scope of this paper. The conditions of single grounds occupy most of the treatment, although incidentally the subject of short circuits and high frequency oscillations are brought in briefly where they are particularly pertinent. The general principles of the arcing ground suppressor are described. Its mechanical features, consisting of an oil switch, electrostatic or electromagnetic selective… Expand

Lightning and Other Experience with 132-Kv. Steel Tower Transmission Lines, and its Bearing on Tower-Line Design from the Continuity of Service Standpoint
A large number of transmission lines have been erected without adequate consideration having been given to the ability of the line to stay in circuit electrically during the occurrence of lightningExpand
Localizers, Suppressors, and Experiments
Generators on a loaded three-phase system maintain practically constant delta potential between phases. The generators themselves generate nearly constant and stable Y potentials. Any shifting of theExpand

For a considerable time the voltage of long distance transmissions was limited by the line insulator. Until a few years ago, the transmission line insulator was the same pin type as used in telegraphExpand
