Union University and represents the work of a number of years. It comprises the investigation of phenomena which heretofore have rarely been dealt with in text-books but have now become of such importance that a knowledge of them is essential for every electrical engineer, as they include some of the most important problems which electrical engineering will have to solve in the near future to maintain its thus far unbroken progress. A few of these transient phenomena were observed and experimentally investigated in the early days of electrical engineering, for instance, the building up of the voltage of direct-current generators from the remanent magnetism. Others, such as the investigation of the rapidity of the response of a compound generator or a booster to a change of load, have become of importance with the stricter requirements now made on electric systems. Transient phenomena which were of such short duration and small magnitude as to be negligible with the small apparatus of former days have become of serious importance in the huge generators and high power systems of to-day, as the discharge of generator fields, the starting currents of transformers, the shortcircuit currents of alternators, etc. Especially is this the case with two classes of phenomena closely related to each other: the phenomena of distributed capacity and those of high frequency currents. Formerly high frequency currents were only a subject for brilliant lecture experiments now, however, in the wireless telegraphy they have found an important industrial use. Telephony has advanced from the art of designing elaborate switchboards to an engineering science, due to the work of M. I.
