    An experiment with a low-cost "teaching machine" is described and evaluated from the standpoint of effectiveness in an electrical engineering course given to practicing engineers at their plant. In the new teaching method the instructor is not present at two of the three weekly sessions. The method replaced a 3-hour session held once each week and was found to be more effective and convenient for ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1306 KB)

    The lack of sufficient formal education in the field of reliability is an accepted fact by both the engineering educator and reliability manager. This paper describes this problem in some detail and contrasts the state of reliability education with other more established disciplines. Some of the previous ambitious attempts to remedy this situation are discussed and some more limited and perhaps mo... View full abstract»

  • The Difference Amplifier-An Explanation for the Undergraduate

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):27 - 31
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (993 KB)

    An elementary analysis of the difference amplifier is presented in this paper in a form that is easily understood by undergraduates. Basic operation of the amplifier, the significance of the "common-mode rejection ratio," the maximum allowable input signal level, and the use of "balancing resistors" in the emitter circui'ts are the principal topics covered. In addition, a practical difference ampl... View full abstract»

  • A Hybrid Realization for Sampled-Data Controllers

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1969 KB)

    This paper presents a method for realizing sampled-data compensators for discrete control systems. A canonical representation that requires a minimum number of delay elements is selected for the realization of sampled-data compensation functions. A hybrid implementation of this canonical form is presented that uses analog elements for multiplication and summation, and digital elements for storage ... View full abstract»

  • A User-Oriented Synthesis Program for Transmission Networks

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):37 - 41
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2828 KB)

    A computer program is presented that is intended primarily as a teaching aid for the design of transmission networks. It permits the student to select intuitively a set of reflection zeros or natural modes and attenuation poles and to evaluate several selected performances as the result of this selection.

  • The Short-Circuit Modes of a Synchronous Machine

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):41 - 44

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1723 KB)

    Time-domain matrix methods coupled with convenient linear transformations are used to obtain expressions for the winding currents of a synchronous machine subjected to a symmetrical three-phase short circuit. For the case of a rotor having two windings in quadrature, the system matrix eigenvalues are found in terms of winding-time constants. For this particular machine, the nature of the short-cir...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (724 KB)

    Through use of vertex matrices and a path inversion-induced duality between paths and loops, it is shown that the work of finding additional graph formulas from a given formula can often be reduced. View full abstract»

  • Generating Functions, Difference-Differential and Partial-Differential Equations

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):46 - 48
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (653 KB)

    A series solution approach to solving partial-differential equations can be based on difference-differential equations. The approach is explained and used to obtain an analytic solution in examples. Computational methods can be used to obtain a finite number of the series coefficient functions, and hence an approximate solution. The concepts of this paper should be of interest in classes in comput... View full abstract»

  • On the Numerical Integration of Discontinuous Functions

    The numerical integration of discontinuous functions is best carried out by integrating each continuous portion of the integrand separately. Through the use of a simple example, it is demonstrated that integrating through a discontinuity (by blindly applying a standard technique such as Simpson's rule) increases the computation time and the sensitivity to round-off error.

  • A Fourier Transform Approach to Transmission-Line Analysis

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):50 - 52
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (573 KB)

    In this paper the transmission-line equations and their solutions are presented in terms of Fourier transforms. This approach is particularly useful in presenting transmission lines to undergraduates, yet provides a tool that can handle any load and source impedance with any Fourier transformable waveform.

  • On the Analysis of Transmission-Line Transients

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):52 - 54
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (545 KB)

    In the analysis of transmission-line transients, it is customary to assume a frequency-dependent distributed-parameter transmission line and to approximate the propagation constant as a rational function in order to simplify an otherwise complicated analysis. This paper focuses on the validity of these approximations and derives some definite conclusions. View full abstract»

  • Some Electronic Techniques for Speed and Slip Measurement in Power Laboratories

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):54 - 57
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1588 KB)

    Circuits that provide a transient and steady-state measure of slip and speed for rotating machines are described. A basic stroboscope consisting of very few components, all solid state, is also described and this can be used for the measurement, under steady conditions, of synchronous machine load-angle, of speed, and also, to a limited extent, of slip. The circuit designs are modular in character... View full abstract»

  • Switching off of Magnetic Fields

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s): 59
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (153 KB)

    Instantaneous switching off of magnetic fields usually involves some analytical problems concerning the instant t= 0. It is shown that this is due to the fact that disrupted electromagnetic circuits are systems with "a half degree of freedom." The correct answers are obtained only if the displacement current is taken into account, although its absolute value is negligible in conductors. View full abstract»
