    This paper presents the radical view that training manpower to satisfy the needs of industry or government is not the purpose of engineering education. Rather, the focus is the individual student, his needs, his development, his fulfillment. Often the needs of the individual are not compatible with the needs of the corporation or of government; in such cases the latter should yield. The curriculum... View full abstract»

    A new introductory sequence in engineering electromagnetics is described. Its novel features include an axiomatic development of electromagnetic theory, the application of transform analysis to the solution of the important partial differential equations, and the use of engineering terminology in developing a distributed systems viewpoint. The sequence establishes a close relationship among electr... View full abstract»

    This paper describes an efficient version of NASAP (Network Analysis for Systems Application Program) that has been developed by Northeastern University for batch and on-line solution of circuit problems. Problem coding, using a free-form input format, may be facilitated by use of mark-sense cards. The program provides a multiple-transfer function representation of a linear, lumpedparameter networ...

  • Design of Digital Systems: The Parse-Implement Approach

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):18 - 25
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2041 KB)

    Presently the design of digital systems as treated in undergraduate engineering programs is restricted to one of two environmental levels, software or hardware, with little pedagogical effort directed at uniting these levels. This paper introduces the concept of a systems level of study at which environmental level considerations become special case treatments of a generalized design procedure. Th... View full abstract»

    The advent of the fast Fourier transform method has greatly extended our ability to implement Fourier methods on digital computers. A description of the alogorithm and its programming is given here and followed by a theorem relating its operands, the finite sample sequences, to the continuous functions they often are intended to approximate. An analysis of the error due to discrete sampling over f... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1737 KB)

    Any N-pole linear lumped-constant time-invariant network can be represented by a linear homogeneous difference equation. If an arbitrary input waveform is sampled at equally spaced time intervals, so that eight or more samples are available at the highest significant frequency present, the output waveform can be computed in a simple manner from the difference equation. If K input samples are to be... View full abstract»

  • Off-the-Shelf Black Boxes for Programming

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2155 KB)

    When a good circuit designer lays out a new circuit, he isolates those functions which are more or less self-contained and puts them in separate modules. This not only has the advantages of simplification, flexibility, and easier maintenance, but it also enables the designer to take advantage of whatever off-the-shelf modules he can obtain. A good programmer plans his programs the same way, dividi... View full abstract»

    The application of electronic technology to the most profound of man's tasks, that of education, provides both the opportunity for realizing lifelong, experiential learning as well as the possibility of yielding unpredicted social consequences. The use of high-speed digital computers and teaching machines is outlined and the growing power for cultural communication and control is discussed. Some p... View full abstract»

    Operator shift methods in differential equations theory have analogies in difference equations theory. These techniques may be useful in finding the complementary solution and often the particular solution, as well as in providing insight into the relation between the roots of the characteristic equation and the form of the solution.

    As a result of an increased utilization of the digital computer in Fourier analysis applied to engineering problems, the asymptotic behavior of the Fourier transform is becoming increasingly important. This paper presents a heuristic and detailed proof of a rather fundamental theorem bearing on this behavior, with the hope that this will engender greater emphasis on this technique in engineering c...

    With the advent of the computer, engineering education had to be altered to accommodate the use of the computer as an engineering tool. Being aware of this need, the Electronic Engineering Department at Monmouth College, West Long Branch, N. J., has developed and is experimenting with a course which prepares students to use both the analog and the digital computer in engineering analysis. The cont... View full abstract»

    Special methods are generally used to evaluate the partial fraction constants corresponding to the repeated poles of a proper fraction. Here it is shown by example that the normal method is easily extended to cover this situation; the procedure is useful pedogogically as an introduction to the Goldstone method. View full abstract»

    A survey was conducted on the availability of high-voltage educational laboratories in the universities of various countries. The purpose of the survey was to establish whether education in this area of electrical engineering has kept pace with industrial growth. The results show that in the United States only five such laboratories are known to be in active existence. These are not used for instr... View full abstract»

  • Step-by-Step Formation of Matrices from Objectsin Sequence

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):66 - 69
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (885 KB)

    Many ideas lose much of their abstractness and take on a real, physical meaning to a student if he can construct examples of his own. This paper outlines a method which is easily applied for constructing such examples as matrices to describe various aspects of a system whose elements have a sequential ordering. Several examples are included. View full abstract»

  • Generalized Clarke Components for Polyphase Networks

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):69 - 71

    This paper deals with the generalization of the Clarke components to polyphase current and voltage systems. Two definitions are proposed and their relative merits are discussed. It is shown that the second definition is to be preferred, since it is not only valid for completely symmetrical networks, but also for networks containing elements with only partial symmetry, such as the stator of an elec...

    By using feedback around an infinite-gain controlled source four finite-gain controlled sources may be simulated. Cascading two of these yields other types of controlled sources. New configurations are obtained by compensating imperfect controlled sources and also by using a negative resistance in the feedback loop. By making use of the singular elements (nullator and norator), some alternative co... View full abstract»
