    The dynamic process of voltage collapse is analyzed based on three mechanisms: on-load tap-changing, load dynamics, and generator excitation limiting. The interaction among these mechanisms and how the voltage collapse takes place are thoroughly investigated in a general interconnected network model under the assumption that system frequency remains unchanged. It is found that, so long as an equil... View full abstract»

    A switched-capacitor circuit is reported for the generation of 1/ fy noise. The circuit is described by a chaotic first-order piecewise-linear discrete map which yields a hopping transition between regions of chaotic motions, and hence produces 1/fy noise. Experimental results form a parasitics-insensitive prototype are included, demonstrating the circuit pe... View full abstract»

    The authors examine the effect of an external periodic excitation on the Chua's piecewise-linear circuit. Under the action of such a force this circuit exhibits a large variety of bifurcation sequences, including period-doubling, period-adding, and windows in the chaos regime. In addition, at certain parameters equal periodic bifurcations, hysteresis, quasi-periodic, and intermittent behavior and ... View full abstract»

    Discrete-time images of lossless LC one-port ladder networks are presented. Such images are obtained by expanding discrete-time reactance functions into z-domain continued fractions to obtain the discrete-time counterparts of Cauer-1, Cauer-2, and mixed-Cauer expansions. A methodology for synthesis of discrete-time reactance functions similar to the one known for the synthesis of... View full abstract»

    A general class of current amplifier-based biquadratic filter circuits capable of realizing arbitrary filter functions including the low-pass, high-pass, and bandpass transfer functions is presented. These realizations are derived from a class of well-known low sensitivity single amplifier biquadratic (SAB) filter circuits using the principle of adjoint networks. The salient features of the propos... View full abstract»

    Two closely related CMOS circuits are described. In the first circuit, the input signal is a current, and the output is a voltage proportional to the square root of input current. In the second circuit, the input is a voltage, and the output is the current proportional to the square of the input voltage. Each circuit includes an operational amplifier and two nested transistors. One of these transi... View full abstract»

    D. Westreich (ibid., vol.36, no.1, p.162-4, 1989) gave a practical algorithm for the evaluation of the matrix polynomial I+A +A2+. . .+AN-1, which requires at most 3 log2N matrix multiplications. The authors present a new method, which only requires at most 2[log2 N]-1 matrix multiplications. The list... View full abstract»

    In cascade realization of active RC, switched-capacitor, and OTA filters, it is desirable to have lower Q values of the pole pairs. The author compares various Q-reducing methods in the design of filters having equal ripples in passband. Two examples are provided to quantitatively illustrate the relative merits of each method in time domain as well as frequency domain View full abstract»

    Transmission-line models for the modified Schur algorithm that handles functions that are bounded on the unit circle and have a finite number of poles inside the unit disc are presented. The first application of these models is the physical interpretation of procedures for root distribution with respect to the unit circle: for every polynomial p(z), the transmission-line model fo...

    The possibility of implementing the double-sampling (DS) techinque in infinite impulse response (IIR) first- and second-order switched-capacitor (SC) decimators is considered. The DS-SC circuits that result are designed using the same procedure as standard IIR decimators, and only a different SC implementation results with a reorganized clock phasing. The main advantage is that the time allowed fo... View full abstract»

  • An novel treatment of robust stability of continuous-time systems

    The four-vertices concept of Kharitonov's theorem is one of the most important results in the area of robust stability of linear time-invariant continuous-time systems. If the coefficients of the characteristic polynomial of a given system are dependent, the vertex concept cannot be applied in general. If the coefficients are linearly dependent, various results can be achieved. The case where the ... View full abstract»

    Active resonators used to make bandpass filters are shown to suffer from a fundamental deterioration in available dynamic range with increasing Q, which is shown to arise from the dissipation in the transistors simulating inductance or performing an equivalent function. An active resonator with Q>1 may only attain a specified dynamic range with the use of a larger tuning capac... View full abstract»

    Frequency transformations for continuous- and discrete-time systems are derived based on the classical work of F.M. Reza (1958). Using Reza's multiplication theorem, it is shown that the analog counterpart of a digital all-pass function is a reactance function View full abstract»
