    The very simple approximations used for calculating the threshold voltage shifts for ion-implanted long-channel MOSFET's in classroom discussions are compared to the results of a more exact numerical simulation. Limited experimental measurements are compared to the calculated threshold voltage shifts. View full abstract»

    This paper describes a three semester-hour laboratory-oriented service course in microcomputers which has been taught five times with steadily increasing enrollments. Using Apple computers, students are taught basic microprocessor and microcomputer concepts, as well as interfacing and applications fundamentals. Emphasis is placed upon developing the skills required to effectively communicate with ... View full abstract»

    A laboratory-based approach is described for making a diversified set of computer firmware design projects available to large groups of undergraduate students at a modest cost. All essential functions are provided as common resources to students. Support functions are made available inexpensively by use of either a minicomputer or a microcomputer. The computer provides interactive operating and te... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a program for analyzing linear active networks that is simple enough to be appropriate as a class project. The key is modeling active networks as RLC nullor networks. This is completely general since all linear active networks can be modeled as RLC nullor networks. View full abstract»

    A novel method of teaching the concepts associated with difference amplifiers is outlined. Departures from methods used in most textbooks consist of emphasis upon superposition of common and difference mode signals, and use of "Thevenin equivalent type" models for the difference amplifier. The well-known decomposition of an arbitrary signal into common and difference mode components is interpreted... View full abstract»

  • A Simple Approach to the Solution of the ac-dc Power Flow Problem

    The advent of inexpensive and reliable high-power SCR's has led to the reemergence of dc power systems for industrial and utility applications. Calculations of the voltage profile for these systems require that the ac-dc power flow problem be solved. While many texts treat the ac power flow, none to date have incorporated the ac-dc power flow. Presented in this paper is an approach for simultaneou... View full abstract»

    In this paper, 40 studies are reviewed in which the effectiveness of the personalized system of instruction (P.S.I.) is compared to that of the traditional class method, over the period 1969 to 1979, and a sample is taken of the number and nature of the criteria used and the results of said comparisons in relation to 10 criteria. Most of the research consulted (90 percent) only partially evaluated... View full abstract»

  • Parameter Estimation in a Simple Experiment: The Resonant Circuit Revisited

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):47 - 49
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    The experimental study of a resonant circuit offers a natural opportunity to introduce modern methods of parameter estimation in the electrical engineering curriculum. In this short note it is shown that optimal parameters, determined by mathematical optimization methods, lead to models that fit experimental results better than models with parameters obtained by physical measurements. Moreover, on... View full abstract»
