Title: PARALLEL OPERATION OF WELDING GENERATORS

Abstract

Eight 900-amp, 36-kw direct current welding generators driven by eight 60-hp induction motors were operated in parallel to supply up to 7200 amp to resistance loads for heat transfer studies. A description and circuit designs of this installation, which provides safety interlocks and permits sectionalized operation for separate leads, are given. (auth)
