    The paper introduces the parametric transformer as a device which provides a simple demonstration of the theory underlying parametric excitation and resonance. Following a review of the historical development of parametric devices, the operating principles of the parametric transformer are explained on the basis of the stability chart of the Mathieu-Hill type differential equation. The graphical techniques presented in the paper facilitate a ready understanding of the basic phenomena associated with the operation of parametric devices, and these techniques are extended to cover the description of various inherent characteristics of the parametric transformer which are useful in power-conditioning applications.

    This paper presents two graduate courses in the area of real-time control and operation of power systems. The objective of the courses is to study real-time control functions as performed by modern energy control centers. The main topics addressed are: 1) data acquisition and estimation, 2) energy management/automatic generation control, and 3) security monitoring and control. A unique feature of the courses is the use of a number of interactive computer programs. These programs assist students in studying in depth and understanding the concepts underlying the real-time operation of power systems. The paper describes course contents and the utilization of computer programs to enhance student comprehension of the concepts involved. Typical homework assignments are described to illustrate the utilization of the computer programs. The courses are presently offered at Georgia Tech, with excellent student response.

    A relatively inexpensive computer interface with an electric machines laboratory is described. This interface permits a number of experiments which could not be performed otherwise. Three such experiments are described in this paper: an interactive phasor diagram of the synchronous machine model, the dynamic buildup of speed of a dc motor, and the electomechanical oscillation of a synchronous motor.

    An introductory control systems laboratory which uses a microcomputer to provide an automated and highly flexible set of experiments is presented. Most of the important theoretical concepts which are presented in an introductory course in control systems are illustrated through experiments on an electromechanical system. Particular attention is given to an experiment which illustrates the use of the root locus diagram in the design of control systems. View full abstract»

    A microprogrammable microprocessor simulation is discussed. Four memory mapped I/O devices permit the interaction with various simulated on-line devices. The microprogrammable format, based on the architecture of the Am2900 family of bit-slice products, allows numerous architectures to be modeled. A development system that includes a microassembler and a macroassembler is detailed. The application of this simulation in teaching and the development and debugging of macro/ microprograms are discussed. The simulation is written in Pascal, and the assemblers are built using the UNIX development tools LEX and YACC. View full abstract»

    This paper presents a single board microcomputer which, in conjunction with a terminal console, constitutes a powerful but inexpensive work station for the instruction of undergraduate and graduate students in computer engineering. The hardware includes 64 K bytes of RAM, 64 K bytes of EPROM (storing a monitor, an editor, an assembler, and a debugger software), six serial ports, two parallel ports with timer capabilities, and a wire-wrap area. The microcomputer can be connected to a host system that acts simply as a nonvolatile storage and printing center. View full abstract»

  • A Model for the Evaluation of Instructional Methods

    A model was developed for the purpose of evaluating and comparing instructional methods in relation to a broad spectrum of variables associated with their effectiveness. To this end, some forms of evaluation used by educators were incorporated and two learning theories were added, which served as a frame of reference to explain the results obtained in the evaluation. The model is of a descriptive nature in that it takes into account a general picture of the main elements and products which should be borne in mind when evaluating an instructional method. The model is presented in detail, and a description is given of its first application in the evaluation of the personalized system of instruction, as implemented for the teaching of basic physics at Simdn Bolivar University, Caracas, Venezuela. Finally, certain comments are made on the utility of the model, together with recommendations for its use. View full abstract»
