    On August 24, 1970, 42 low-emission vehicles left M.I.T. on the first leg of the Clean Air Car Race. Seven days later, 35 of the cars had crossed the finish line at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena. In the electric-hybrid category, two vehicles tied for first place--the University of Toronto and the Worcester Polytechnic Institute entries. The WPI car, which used an internal-combus...

    Despite recent advances in solid-state controls for electric cars, chopper-induced problems still exist: commutation and ac losses are significantly high, the chopping action induces losses within the power source, and large ripple components in the chopper output cause increased rms losses at the motor. The author's dual chopper, two conventional choppers in parallel, reduces these problems. The ... View full abstract»

    At the present time there is much interest in vehicle location systems [1]-[3]. For certain applications [4]-[7] precise location of the vehicle is not needed and determination that the vehicle is within a zonal area of the city is sufficient. This paper considers a vehicle location system in which an array of transmitters forms an "electronic fence" along the zone boundaries. As it passes throagh... View full abstract»

    A method of calculating the effect of supports on the amplitude characteristics of a Goubau line is given in this paper. The results from this method agree well with experimental data and thus predictions for a line one mile in length were made. It is shown that supports can cause limitations in the line length and in the available bandwidth. View full abstract»
