(6) Select a moderate value of flux density in the air-gap and make Z correspondingly large. In other words, the armature should be magnetically powerful. It is interesting to note that for moderate speeds the cubic curve y'R of Fig.

Jetzt, in traumhaftem Entschlüsse, hob sie mit beiden Händen die ihr vererbte Waffe und traf mit ganzer Kraft das teure Haupt. Jürgs Arme sanken, er blickte die hoch vor ihm Stehende mit voller Liebe an, ein düsterer Triumph flog über seine Züge, dann stürzte er schwer zusammen.
Page 38 - Inspection of equation (20) will suffice to show that the constant i is the controlling factor in determining the shape of curve y'n and also the points in which it intersects the axis of n. For suppose that 7 = 0, which would mean physically that there is no demagnetizing effect due to the winding element shortcircuited by brush b, or in other words, that there is no current in this short-circuited element; the numerator of (19) then reduces to r.) (23) which represents a straight line shown as...
