Article publication date: 1 June 1944


A FREQUENTLY recurring problem, more particularly in the sphere of electrical engineering practice, is the determination of the equivalent rating of a machine or piece of apparatus under conditions of intermittent loading. By equivalent rating is to be understood the value of the continuous load, whether expressed in terms of current or power, which will produce the same final temperature rise as is actually produced by the given intermittent load.
