  • A single sheet tester having closed magnetic path (a closed type of SST) has a problem that measurement accuracy of magnetostriction is considerably affected by electromagnetic force between specimen and yoke. Therefore, an open type has been developed. In order to get uniform flux distribution in sufficiently large region, a compensating magnetizing winding is installed, and a method of waveform control is investigated, in which applied voltages to main and compensating windings are adjusted individually. The effectiveness of the newly developed open type is demonstrated by measuring magnetostrictions of thin amorphous sheet as well as highly grain-oriented silicon steel sheet.
  • An electrical circuit testing device is provided, comprising a case, a digital voltage level testing circuit with a display means, a switch to initiate measurement using the device, a non-shorting switching means for selecting pre-determined electrical wiring configurations to be tested in an outlet, a terminal block, a five-pole electrical plug mounted on the case surface and a set of adapters that can be used for various multiple-pronged electrical outlet configurations for voltages from 100 600 VAC from 50 100 Hz.
  • Calculation techniques used in designing low-voltage electrical distribution systems have advanced decidedly over the past two decades, as has the design of modern molded-case circuit breakers (MCCB's). There is a need for data and interfacing techniques that permit the system design engineer to calculate system response under short-circuit conditions with the MCCB as an active element of the circuit. This paper discussed the MCCB as a circuit element and describes one method of calculating system behavior with the MCCB as an element.
