D. B. Rushmore: It is very difficult to consider the subject of reactors for power stations or feeders without studying the apparatus such as generators, transformers, oil switches, protecting apparatus, etc. As a rule, electrical disturbances are due either to high currents, high voltages or high frequencies; and high frequencies have, as a rule, an indirect effect of producing high voltages, so we have simply high currents and high voltages to contend with.
