    The purpose of education of the electrical engineer is explored, especially as it relates to the division of responsibility between the teaching machine and the faculty. Arguments are presented for making the curriculum more flexible and better suited to individual students, especially gifted students. View full abstract»

    Mathematics comprises abstract operations upon abstract elements. For the application of mathematics to the sciences, we not only must know the rules for manipulating symbols, but also must define the correspondences between the mathematical abstractions and the concepts to which application is made. Certain basic postulates about physical observables yield the structure of their mathematical repr... View full abstract»

  • Introduction to Electrical Engineering Systems

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):74 - 77

    A course is described in which the attempt is made to introduce first-year electrical engineering students to the basic principles upon which their chosen discipline is founded and to establish early the concept of a system. It is contended that an undergraduate course need not lag a decade behind current practice and current thinking but that, rather, the techniques taught and, indeed, the entire... View full abstract»

  • Procedures for the Automated Synthesis of Logical Networks

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):77 - 81
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1098 KB)

    Numerical procedures are presented which can be programmed in a generalized manner to accomplish the logical design of various logical networks with the use of a general-purpose digital computer. Some programming techniques are discussed to indicate just how the procedures are performed in the computer. Several elementary designs are mentioned with regard to the relationship between the network in... View full abstract»

    Senior technical electives in electrical engineering should Drovide the student with an oonortunitv to svnthesize knowledge gained throughout his undergraduate years. An excellent vehicle for such synthesis is a design project, including a detailed written and oral report. This paper describes such a project and discusses its effectiveness in achieving these goals. View full abstract»

    During a session of the first Intersociety Energy Conversion Engineering Conference, a panel discussion dealt with approaches to nonconventional energy conversion education. This short paper covers the contribution of this author. It is realized that these topics should be covered during university studies; however, the question of where in a curriculum, or when during a student's university caree... View full abstract»

  • Probability Theory and the Laplace Transform

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):99 - 100

    The problem of the sum of two or more random variables can be solved through use of the Laplace transform. It is argued that use of this technique, usually learned in earlier circuits courses, can help the student appreciate its wide applicability and at the same time increase his understanding of an important problem in probability theory.

    The state-variable approach to linear system analysis is applied to an example problem originating in the fields of physiology and medicine. A linear, time-invariant model is formulated to describe the absorption of an orally administered drug into the bloodstream from the gastrointestinal tract, and the subsequent removal of the drug from the bloodstream by the passive clearance function of the k...

    Graphical methods of solving linear circuits in the steady state have been reviewed at various times [2] and recently it was suggested by Boehne [3] that "simpler straight line methods for 4320244-Y transformations might be sought." The present paper describes some novel constructions resulting from this search. The constructions are very simple for transforming any polyphase star or mesh, whateve... View full abstract»

    A general conservative system may be considered to be represented by n(generalized) ports at which energy can enter the system; two generalized variables are associated with each port, the generalized force variable and the generalized coordinate variable. It is shown that the generalized force exerted on the system by the ith port at any given point in the system may be expressed in terms of the ... View full abstract»

    Some basic, unpretentious analog circuits are presented which may be useful in demonstrating mathematical concepts introduced at the senior high and college freshman levels. The analog computer is used as a picture-drawing device. How it operates is not emphasized. These circuits have been used several times in presentations made to groups of teachers, and should be of particular interest to those... View full abstract»

  • Teaching Transistor Circuit Design to Undergraduate Engineers

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):111 - 114
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (694 KB)

    A simple equivalent circuit is proposed which can form the basis for undergraduate courses in circuit design. The circuit sacrifices a small amount of accuracy in gaining a great deal of simplicity. Since this equivalent circuit applies to all areas of design, a unified, practical approach to transistor design can be developed. Several justifications are presented for using this equivalent circuit... View full abstract»

  • The Mechanics of the Bilinear Transformation

    The effect of the bilinear transformation substitution s 1 Z = -- s- on a polynomial equation nE aizi = 0 i= 0 is formulated in matrix terms. The matrices involved are formed by very simple rules. This procedure considerably facilitates calculation of the resulting s-polynomial, and makes the bilinear transformation an attractive tool for systems analysis rather than the textbook curiosity which i...

  • On a Theorem Used in Determining a Driving-Point Immittance from Its Phase Specifications

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s): 117
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (222 KB)

    A simple and straightforward proof is given of the following theorem: The slope of the numerator polynomial of the odd part of a positive real function F(s) is negative at a pole, and positive at a zero, of F(s) on the imaginary axis, including the origin. The theorem is used in the tangent function method of deriving a drivingpoint immittance from the specification of its phase. View full abstract»
