    Although not its main purpose, this paper takes issue with certain criticisms of the "Goals of Engineering Education" report. The main thrust of this paper is, assuming that the general goals are sufficiently well established within the minds of most engineering educators, to develop specific methods for improving education rather than to further refine and distill our definitions. Two specific su... View full abstract»

    Over the last few years an integrated circuit fabrication laboratory intended primarily for use by undergraduates has been developed within the School of Electrical Engineering at Purdue University. Operating under the principle that integrated circuit design and laboratory practice are inseparable, the main objective was to allow the undergraduate student to acquire a working knowledge of how tra...

    The construction details of a simple, inexpensive television system that permits display of any waveform produced on a conventional 5-inch oscilloscope are described. The system requires no electrical connections to the oscilloscope whose waveform is to be displayed, and is limited in bandwidth, sensitivity, and versatility only by the 5-inch oscilloscope employed.

    The choice of media for instruction or communication will be influenced by its potential for stimulus recognition, this being an essential part of the perception of the message. Audio stimuli and audio stimuli with visual reinforcement from television are considered, and the conclusion drawn from tests performed is that the visual reinforcement has a considerable beneficial effect. Tests involving... View full abstract»

  • A Novel Approach for Undergraduate Teaching

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):82 - 83
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (549 KB)

    A novel approach for undergraduate teaching is proposed in which the instructor will meet the students for a three-credit-hour course only one hour a week to discuss and interact with each other instead of giving the monolog-type of lectures. The new approach has many potential advantages. Theoretically it should benefit the students and the instructors, as well as the college administrations. Sho... View full abstract»

  • Applications of Linear Graph Theory to Lumped Models of Solid-State Devices

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):83 - 87
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (819 KB)

    Linear graph theory has received wide application in electrical network theory. This paper extends the well-known methods of network analysis by exploiting the linear relationship between current and carrier density that exists in the lumped (large-signal) model of the bipolar transistor. The lumped model is described briefly and a linear graph is drawn for the lumped model. Relations between the ... View full abstract»

  • The Application of the Compensation Theorem in the Proof of Thevenin's and Norton's Theorems

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):87 - 88
    Cited by:  Papers (7)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (339 KB)

    It has been found that, for linear networks, both Thevenin's and Norton's theorems are special cases of the compensation theorem. To illustrate the interdependence of these network theorems, Thevenin's theorem is proved using the compensation theorem. Norton's theorem can be derived by using a dual form of the compensation theorem. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (589 KB)

    Particularly in the field of control systems, a large amount of computation is required for analysis or synthesis of even very simple systems. Most all electrical engineers vividly remember the effort required for hand computation of the transient response of a third-or fourth-order system driven by some polynomial or trigonometric function. The advent of high-speed, low-cost computers with FORTRA... View full abstract»

  • Conservation of Energy in the Discharge of an Ideal Capacitor Structure

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):91 - 93
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    An ancient "chestnut" of circuit theory is the energy discrepancy associated with the switching of a charged ideal capacitor. It is suggested that the problem of interest should instead be that of an ideal capacitor structure, for which a field analysis results always in energy conservation and is of practical significance.

    The United States Military Academy at West Point, N. Y., has used a time-shared computer system in support of the academic program since 1965. The requirement has existed, however, for a highly flexible, portable access terminal-one more portable than the bulky communication or video units normally labeled as portable. It was felt that a terminal that could be used in any classroom or auditorium w... View full abstract»

  • A Pitfall in the Scalar Electromagnetic Formulation of Kirchhoff Theory

    A difficulty in applying scalar Kirchhoff diffraction theory to the individual components of the vector electromagnetic field is pointed out. For example, the method, if applied incorrectly, does not account for the cross-polarized radiation from a circumferential slot on a cylindrical structure. View full abstract»

    Return difference and sensitivity with respect to a parameter can be easily evaluated when the first power of the parameter occurs as a unique branch transmittance. The method has been extended to cases when the parameter and its higher powers occur as transmittances in more than one branch. View full abstract»

    An important problem in the design of a closed-loop control system is the selection of an open-loop system gain to match an allowable damping ratio. This paper presents an analytical method for determining the open-loop gain for a given damping ratio. A derivation of the method, a few points of note in the computer program, and some numerical examples are discussed. View full abstract»

    Analysis of the stability of amplifier circuits by the method of examining the signs of the input and output resistances is often beset with pitfalls, compared to other methods of stability analysis. Some representative instances are quoted from the literature and the precautionary measures to be taken are stressed. View full abstract»

    SOme pedagogical aspects pertaining to the algorithms that are used to compute the discrete Fourier and the Hadamard transforms are considered. Elementary matrix partitioning techniques are used to illustrate the manner in which these algorithms work and how they are related. It is felt that this approach can be used to good advantage to introduce the student to this class of algorithms before pro... View full abstract»

    Taylor expansions and subsequent arrangement in linear simultaneous-equation form lead to matrices for the numerical application of the bilinear transformation z=(s+1)/(s-1). The matrices are somewhat similar to those previously reported, but the proof seems more adaptable to the classroom. View full abstract»

    Closed-form expressions for various powers m periodic nonsinusoidal steady state are derived, and conditions insuring their existence are given. These powers are related to the class of powers possessing conservation properties-the generalized powers-and it is shown that of all powers defined in the nonsinusoidal steady state, only active power and reactive power are generalized powers.
