Excerpt from Elementary Lectures on Electric Discharges: Waves and Impulses, and Other Transients

In the following I am trying to give a short outline of those phenomenon which have become the most important to the electrical engineer, as on their understandings and control depends the further successful advance of electrical engineering. The art has now so far advanced that the phenomena of the steady flow of power are well understood. Generators, motors, transforming devices, transmission and distribution conductors can, with relatively little difficulty, be calculated, and the phenomena occurring in them under normal conditions of operation predetermined and controlled. Usually, however, the limitations of apparatus and lines are found not in the normal condition of operation, the steady flow of power, but in the phenomena occurring under abnormal though by no means unfrequent conditions, in the more or less transient abnormal voltages, currents, frequencies, etc.; and the study of the laws of these transient phenomena, the electric discharges, waves, and impulses, thus becomes of paramount importance. In a former work, "Theory and Calculation of Transient Electric Phenomena and Oscillations," I have given a systematic study of these phenomena, as far as our present knowledge permits, which by necessity involves to a considerable extent the use of mathematics. As many engineers may not have the time or inclination to a mathematical study, I have endeavored to give in the following a descriptive exposition of the physical nature and meaning, the origin and effects, of these phenomena, with the use of very little and only the simplest form of mathematics, so as to afford a general knowledge of these phenomena to those engineers who have not the time to devote to a more extensive study, and also to serve as an introduction to the study of" Transient Phenomena."
