Heretofore the distance to which power could be transmitted has been limited. This limitation is now removed by a simple method of loading the line with synchronous condensers, so that the current and voltage may be kept practically in phase. High power factor and hence high efficiency result, and the voltage rises of the system are very much reduced, thus reducing insulation strains. A standard frequency of 60 cycles is advocated for the national system, and 220,000 volts is proposed as… CONTINUE READING
