  • In the past few years the need of a device for recording voltage surges on transmission lines has been felt more and more. Realizing this need, J. F. Peters, in the fall of nineteen twenty-three, developed the klydonograph which utilizes the Litchtenberg figure to record the characteristics of transient voltages. The principle of the instrument and practical connections to a line are discussed. The results obtained in the field from four investigations are given. Parts II and IV describe the… CONTINUE READING
