Experiments with High Tension Currents

at the Oerlikon Works, Switzerland.

C. L. Brown, manager of the Oerlikon Works, Switzerland, recently read a paper for the Electrotechnische Gesellschaft at Frankfort on the transmission of high tension currents. As this paper was based on extensive experiments made in the Oerlikon factory, and proved of considerable interest on the other side of the water, an account of the tests is given herewith for the benefit of American electricians.
