Abstract

THE reversal of the poles of a Voss machine by giving some turns in the wrong direction, as observed in NATURE of January 5 (p. 221), is not an unknown phenomenon. It is described in my paper “Essai sur la Théorie des Machines électriques à influence” (Gauthier-Villars, Paris, 1898), p. 38, together with a much more trustworthy and simpler means—an improvement, in theory and in fact. This consists in discharging by hand, at the same time, both the inductors of the fixed disc. Then the reversal is invariably observed without stopping the machine.
