    An experiment on pulse-code modulation designed for the senior-year electronics student is described. PCM is pedagogically desirable for its embodiment of a wide variety of pulse and digital techniques. The experiment draws upon the component-type experiences typical of undergraduate courses and integrates them into a complex system study. Emphasis is on functional interaction rather than on how a... View full abstract»

    This article describes a laboratory servomechanism and an associated laboratory sequence which were designed to complement theoretical first courses in servomechanisms at either senior-year undergraduate or first-year graduate level. The primary aims were to provide the student with the means for an experimental verification of theoretical results and, at the same time, to encourage him to establi... View full abstract»

  • On the Pedagogy of Feedback Systems

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):10 - 12

    The undergraduate student contacts feedback ideas from two distinct points of view, each with its own nomenclature and symbolism: electronics on one hand, and control systems on the other. In the typical electronics or communications book treating feedback at an undergraduate level, the analysis is constrained to the steady-state sinusoidal situation. Nyquist's criterion is merely presented withou... View full abstract»

    The paper discusses how the concept of switchingtype servosystems can be introduced into an undergraduate curriculum without requiring a more advanced background in mathematics on the part of the student than is ordinarily expected. A differential equation approach is used to study the response of a second-order system which is excited with a step function input. The system starts to respond in a ... View full abstract»

    The z transform of simple delay, integrator, leadlag, and differentiator networks are suggested as the basic building blocks for simulating complex control systems on a digital computer. The system parameters retain their explicit identity, thus facilitating analysis and design of the system as a function of specific parameter changes. View full abstract»

    Based on energy considerations, it is possible to obtain the differential equations of motion of any physical system. A statement of equilibrium involving operations on energy functions is the Lagrange equation d / OT a7' D aOV dt (aq,) -aq aq + aq. Providing that the kinetic energy T, potential energy V, and dissipation function D can be written, the differential equations of the system are obtai... View full abstract»

    A new method for determining the coefficients of the Fourier series is given. This method is developed by considering each sample as a vector. The two coefficients an and bn are obtained simultaneously. Compared with the present techniques, this method is much simpler and more accurate. Illustrative examples are included.

    The main purpose of this paper is to present and clarify the subdivision of teaching machines into the General Purpose and Special Purpose categories. Initial defining of: Teaching Machines, General Purpose Teaching Machines, Special Purpose Teaching Machines, and Teaching Machine Technology will establish a frame of reference within which this paper will be presented. The distinctions between the... View full abstract»

    The evolution of graduate education in electrical engineering began in the early 1890' s and progressed at a rapid pace in the 1920' s, particularly in metropolitan areas conscious of community needs. In these areas, evening programs held the spotlight because of the ever-demanding need to provide graduate engineers with advanced knowledge. Such cooperation between community interests and colleges... View full abstract»
