  • Adaptive control through sinusoidal response

    An investigation has been made in the application of sinusoidal techniques to adaptive feedback control systems. The adaptive feature of this approach is an automatic gain control. These systems contain two loops: a basic or primary control loop and an adaptive control loop. The forward-path gain of the basic loop is adjusted by the adaptive loop. A sine wave test signal is added continuously to t... View full abstract»

  • Regression techniques in multivariate adaptive control systems

    A control system is proposed which utilizes a multiple regression technique for optimal control of a multivariate nonstationary process. The concept underlying this system is the basing of each set of control actions on a current statistical description of the process, so that the adjustments performed will cause control of the output in an efficient manner. Adjustments are made to occur at discre... View full abstract»

  • Optimalizing control with process-dynamics identification

    The meaning of the terms process identification, adaptive and optimalizing control is indicated. The basic difference between these types of control and the ordinary ones is the need for a "learning process". Using multiplication plus integration as the simplest possible type of "learning", simple schemes are obtained in which sinusoidals or random fluctuations may be used as test signals. A more ...

  • Stability and control of nuclear rocket propulsion

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):86 - 96
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (584 KB)

    A systems treatment of the dynamic behavior of nuclear rocket propulsion systems is presented. This simplified analysis does represent the basic ideas of more detailed computer studies. Nuclear reactor systems for space propulsion are much faster than conventional reactor systems which complicates the controls problem. (The dynamics of chemical systems have been simpler in nature due to their spee... View full abstract»

  • Optimum design of passive-adaptive, linear feedback systems with varying plants

    In designing a feedback control system involving a variable (or incompletely known) plant the prime consideration, besides obtaining a satisfactory transfer function, is to specify a system which is insensitive to plant variations. Some procedures for obtaining insensitive designs have been described in the literature, but they all result in systems having large open loop bandwidths. In the presen... View full abstract»

    In this paper a method is described for evaluating the dynamic performance of the operation of an organization. It is shown that the performance response of past efforts can be expressed mathematically by means of performance operators leading to the development of a mathematical model of the process of industrial operations. This paper considers the operation of an engineering organization as a d... View full abstract»

    Unsymmetrical half periods exist in a system with static and kinetic dry friction. The time duration under kinetic and viscous friction is much shorter than that under static friction alone. The condition of sustained oscillation is formulated and determined by a modified describing function method. The accuracy of this mothod is evaluated by comparison to an exact analysis.

  • A phase space investigation of bi-stable systems by means of vectors

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):38 - 39

    An investigation is made to determine the conditions under which a third order system with a bi-stable element will maintain a high frequency oscillation rather than exhibit simple relay switching. A criterion is developed in general terms. The study is made in phase space and vectors are used to determine the direction in which the trajectory intersects the switching plane. The appendix contains ... View full abstract»

  • A non-linear analysis technique for an on-off servo with velocity inputs

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):13 - 21

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (456 KB)

    Optimum transient response can theoretically be obtained with a servo system operated in an on-off mode. Although phase plane techniques can produce an optimum system for positional inputs, it is shown that a phase plane analysis is invalid for velocity inputs for a type 1 control servo. A novel approach to the problem is presented which permits an optimum switching procedure to be obtained for ve... View full abstract»

    Tory II-A, the first experimental reactor in the Pluto nuclear ramjet program, will be tested in late 1960 at the Nevada Test Site of the Atomic Energy Commission. The fundamental objective of Tory II-A is to demonstrate that a high power-density, high-temperature, air-cooled reactor can be successfully designed, constructed, and operated. This application places requirements on the reactor contro... View full abstract»

    "Synchronous" networks, also called "chopper" networks and "commutated" networks, consist of passive elements plus driven switches or choppers. R-C chopper networks have been used occasionally as compensating networks in A-C servos. Their main advantage is a response independent of carrier frequency variation, and freedom from zero drift. Their main disadvantage is noise output in the form of harm... View full abstract»
