    Following an introduction on millimetre waves and their applications, the various types of guiding media for this frequency range are illustrated and described. Particular attention is paid to the H-, groove and fence guides and their derivatives. The discrepancies between theoretical and experimental attenuation of rectangular waveguides is discussed, the characteristics, theory and history of gr... View full abstract»

  • Electric arcs: their electrode processes and engineering applications

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):450 - 480

    The paper reviews some of the most significant developments made since 1970 in the understanding, observation and control of the phenomena which occur in the cathode and anode regions of arcs under a number of conditions, and in the engineering applications in which they are used or arise. Even with this limitation to less than 14 years, the literature on arcs is so vast that selectivity has been ... View full abstract»

  • Control and instrumentation of large nuclear power stations a review of future trends

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):481 - 515
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5899 KB)

    The basic requirements of control and instrumentation (C & I) for large nuclear power stations are reviewed with special reference to the advanced gas-cooled reactor (AGR) and the pressurised water reactor (PWR), emphasising current developments and trends rather than established techniques. The extensive instrumentation, now provided for condition monitoring, particularly of the chemistry of ... View full abstract»

    The paper outlines the principles upon which the efficient control of speed of electrical machines is based, and classifies all the main types of variable-speed drive in accordance with these principles. The development of successful forms of drive is charted from the early machines using electromagnetic control to their modern equivalents using electronic control. The modern drives are described ...

    Aids for the handicapped is an emotive subject; ?electronic aids for the blind? is highly emotive because of the innovation the field has seen over the past 20 years and the controversy over what is best for the user and what is appropriate as a manufactured technology. The subject is reviewed against this background, showing the advances in reading aids to have had a smoother and more successful ... View full abstract»
