    Spreading the signal spectrum is a widely used technique in telecommunication applications. Variable-frequency and spread spectrum modulation methods can also be utilized in power electronic applications to improve electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC). This paper gives an overview to variable-frequency techniques in power electronics with experimental results. View full abstract»

    The rapidly growing fuel consumption in engines and turbine that power the world's transportation vehicles and power-generation plants will nearly exhaust the world's supply of petroleum by the end of the next century. These engines and turbines run at high heat-input temperatures because their efficiency is limited by the Carnot cycle. Muscles used for propulsion by animals are not limited in eff...

    The state of Georgia has experienced a number of tornados that occur without warning, and, in several cases have caused fatalities. Researchers at the Severe Storms Research Center (SSRC) of the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), Georgia Institute of Technology are attempting to detect tornado formation within severe thunderstorms occurring in the vicinity of Atlanta, Georgia, using non-radar...
