    This tutorial paper describes the fundamental mechanism by which mechanical switches produce electrical "noise," and the parameters which determine the complex waveforms, frequency componets, and amplitudes produced. Understanding the fundamentals removes some of the mystery often associated with this ubiquitous source of noise and transients, and can assist in development of effective methods of ...

    This paper is primarily concerned with the analysis of induced transient current and voltage surges on buried shielded transmission lines due to earth-conduction effects of nearby lightning discharges. An analytical method is presented in this paper to model the conductive coupling mechanisms in the earth and to determine the amount of coupling between a lightning discharge to ground and an earth-...

  • Time-and Frequency-Domain Characteristics of Man-Made Radio Noise Affecting HF-Communications Sites

    Publication Year: 1979, Page(s):182 - 189
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (6243 KB)

    The short-term properties of man-made radio noise affecting operational HF receivers are described by simulated threedimensional display. Noise is categorized into types, and the importance of each type to HF circuit operation is discussed. The types of noise are also related to source categories to simplify source location and control processes. View full abstract»

  • Procedures for Determining the Parameters of the First-Order Canonical Models of Class A and Class B Electromagnetic Interference [10]

    Simple approximate methods as well as various more precise, analytical procedures for determining the first-order parameters of both the approximate and exact Class A and B noise models are derived and illustrated for both the ideal case of infinite sample data and the practical cases of finite data samples. It is shown that all first-order parameters of these models can, in principle, be obtained... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (69)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2092 KB)

    The chief aim of this paper is to provide a short technical summary of the principal noise-model results (11-[11], developed by the author to date, and to consider their major implications for 1) measurement, and 2) performance prediction and evaluation. The discussion is illustrated by a concise review of model statistics, methods of estimating the model parameters, including the effects on accur... View full abstract»

  • The Transverse Distribution of Surface Charge Densities on Multiconductor Transmission Lines

    Publication Year: 1979, Page(s):220 - 227
    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1139 KB)

    This paper is concerned with a problem which occasionally arises in the general area of multiconductor transmission line theory. In the past, the method of moments has been applied [1], [2] for the computation of transverse charge distribution and the capacitive-coefficient matrix for electrostatic systems formed by multiconductor transmission lines, with prescribed voltages on each line. But clas... View full abstract»

  • Radio-Frequency Interference Among Linear-FM Radars

    Publication Year: 1979, Page(s):228 - 246
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3063 KB)

    The problem of radio-frequency interference (RFI) between radars using linear-FM pulses is examined. For a very large class of cases, the RFI is the same as if the FM were removed; for the cases not in that category, it is shown that the peak response of an unweighted receiver can be closely approximated by a hand calculation. The effects of cosine-on-a-pedestal weighting, in either the frequency ... View full abstract»

  • Synthetic-Aperture Radar Based on Nonsinusoidal Functions: IV-Tracking Radar and Beam Rider

    Publication Year: 1979, Page(s):247 - 255
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1609 KB)

    Basic features of synthetic-aperture radar based on nonsinusoidal functions have been discussed in three previous papers [1]. This paper investigates the application of the principles to tracking radars and beam riders. The main area of application is for high-resolution all-weather radar. In this case, the highest significant frequency used is two orders of magnitude lower than for a radar using ... View full abstract»

  • Application of Modal Analysis to the Transient Response of Multiconductor Transmission Lines with Branches

    Cited by:  Papers (11)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1883 KB)

    An effective method for computing the time-domain response of lossless multiconductor transmission lines with branches in cross-sectionally inhomogeneous dielectric media is presented. Lines of this type are characterized by multiple propagation modes having different velocities. The theory of wave propagation on lossless multiconductor transmission lines with inhomogeneous dielectrics is used to ... View full abstract»

  • The Electromagnetic Field in an EMP Simulator at a High Frequency

    Publication Year: 1979, Page(s):263 - 269
    Cited by:  Papers (13)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1311 KB)

    The electric field in the working volume of an EMP simulator has been determined experimentally in both amplitude and phase at a frequency that is high enough so that the simulator no longer behaves like a terminated-TEM-mode transmission line. Graphs of the field in the working volume are displayed and interpreted in terms of the TEM and higher parallel-plate modes. The actual field is shown to d... View full abstract»

  • Frequency Synthesis Using Walsh Functions

    Publication Year: 1979, Page(s):269 - 274

    A new scheme for the programmable generation of either square or sine waves of a required frequency is proposed. It uses neither feedback, nor table lookup of stored values, but it derives the desired square wave from a Walsh function, fairly simple to select and to generate with digital circuits. For this purpose, the Walsh function is counted down in a binary counter, at whose output a function ... View full abstract»

  • Microwave Interference with the Function of an Implanted Cardiac Pacemaker

    The effect of external microwave radiation on an implanted cardiac pacemaker is studied. Based on a clinical case history [1] indicating an effective blocking in a patient of the implanted pacing activity due to microwave radiation, the process by which microwave energy may cause this observed effect is analyzed. The problem is formulated in terms of thermoelastic theory in which the absorbed micr... View full abstract»
