An analysis is made of methods for applying a Mills cross array to radar. Such an array could consist of two linear arrays positioned at right angles to each other. The arrays have fan-shaped directivi... View full abstract»

  • Generation of high-speed waveforms using nonlinear delay lines

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):1763 - 1768
    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (703 KB)

    In nonlinear delay lines employing back biased p-n junctions as variable capacitors, the velocity of propagation is a function of signal amplitude. This effect may be used to produce short-risetime pulses which may be of high repetition rate. Two circuit applications are discussed, these being the processing of sinewaves to produce fast-edge triangular pulses, and also the processing of long-riset... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):1775 - 1782
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (892 KB)

    An analysis is given of the phenomenon of direct synchronisation of a sinewave oscillator to a rectangular pulse. The effect of an applied step function is investigated first, and the pulse is then considered as the application of a step, followed by its removal. By considering the action of the nth pulse in an applied pulse train, expressions are derived for most of the important effects, in term... View full abstract»

  • Effects of asymmetry of induction-machine windings upon the slot leakage reactance

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):1805 - 1809
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (563 KB)

    It has been shown recently that asymmetrical fractional-slot windings can be devised to draw balanced currents. The leakage reactance for the three phases of these windings may, however, no longer be equal. The paper discusses the effects of the asymmetry of the windings upon one component of leakage, namely the slot leakage. It is shown that, by careful selection of the coil pitch for the winding...

    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (894 KB)

    By examining the nature of the variate of the breakdown frequency, the conventional method of analysing data is shown to be incorrect, unless some breakdowns occur on the wavetail. A new method is devised for the derivation of the cumulative frequency distribution of breakdown voltage (or `time to breakdown¿), which is an estimate of the corresponding probability distribution. The new method extr... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (711 KB)

    Increases in the signal-carrying capacity of submarine telephone cables by extensions of the frequency bandwidth have led to progressively tighter specifications for the relative permittivity and losses of the polythene dielectric. A study of the factors determining the dielectric losses of low-density, i.e. high-pressure-process, polythene has resulted in a low-loss material, of precise relative ... View full abstract»
