    Binary plot extraction systems are used in contemporary radar systems as an economical means for providing information on the presence and position of targets, by combining data from all the pulses during one scan of the beam. The paper assesses the performance of two binary plot extraction systems employing digital integrating counters. It is shown how to obtain probability of detection curves fo... View full abstract»

    Normalised series-expansion coefficients are presented for the numerical design of the surfaces of extremely short-focal-length/wide angle asperical scanning lens antennas with symmetrical off-axis focal points. Based on theoretical techniques previously developed for the problem, the normalised numerical results presented assume an index of refraction of 1.594 and a fixed off-axis angle of 20° f...

    A closed loop antenna being driven through a straight `centre line¿ conductor which bridges the loop at an axis of the symmetry has been considered. This antenna is called the `centre-line-driven loop antenna¿. In view of the circuit and radiation properties, this is considered as two closely coupled coplanar loops, compressed into a single loop. By approximation of the antenna current by interp... View full abstract»

    The nature of an equivalent network of slots having any arbitrary orientation in the broad wall of a rectangular waveguide, for both even and odd distributions of the aperture field, has been investigated. The complex power radiated by the slot has been determined from the angular spectrum of plane waves. The impedance characteristics of the transverse slot and of the centred inclined slot have be...

    The paper describes experimental evidence, supported by a simple theoretical analysis, of a new form of wave inside a rectangular-guide structure, two opposite walls of which present to the field anisotropic impedances. The mode concerned is of dipole pattern, belonging to the surface-wave family, and is not subject to cutoff. It is shown to be a slow wave, and to propagate along a guide of cross-...

  • Properties of interface between homogeneous and inhomogeneous waveguides

    Publication Year: 1974 , Page(s): 1367 - 1374
    Save to Project icon | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (733 KB)  

    The interface between empty and dielectric-loaded lossless waveguides is discussed in terms of three independent measurable quantities. A mode-matching technique is used to obtain an equivalent-circuit representation of the junction, when only the dominant mode propagates in each waveguide. The circuit has the form of two equivalent transmission lines, which describe the two waveguides, and a 2-el... View full abstract»

  • Analysis of overheads in packet-switched data networks

    Publication Year: 1974 , Page(s): 1375 - 1376

    Theoretical and simulation results are presented for the overheads in packet-switched networks. These overheads arise owing to the operational spects of the network and `blank¿ padding of the last packet of a message. Message lengths have been assumed to be exponentially distributed. Results indicate good agreement between theoretical and simulation results. It is concluded that overheads can be ... View full abstract»

    The problem of determining fault position on a series-compensated power line is considered and a novel measuring scheme based on definite integrals of relaying current and voltage is described. Attention is given to the effect of travelling-wave distortion of relaying signals in designing a prototype single-phase relay. Details of the equipment construction are given together with laboratory tests... View full abstract»

    In the last decade or more, a number of tests on large synchronous machines and the associated analytical work have revealed certain inaccuracies in the theory of synchronous-machine performance, which has been used for the last half century. A new look is taken at the assumptions underlying the old theory and several of them are discarded in the derivation of a new theory which corrects many of t... View full abstract»

  • Transfer-matrix analysis of linear induction machines with finite width and depth

    Publication Year: 1974 , Page(s): 1393 - 1398
    Save to Project icon | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (640 KB)  

    The linear induction machine is considered as a stack of rectangular regions bounded by an impressed excitation. These regions may in general be moving or stationary secondary conductors and iron segments and airgaps. For performance analysis, the field quantities must be evaluated in each region. A wave-impedance approach has previously been successfully applied in cases where lateral edge effect... View full abstract»

  • Current pulsation of induction motor driving a reciprocating compressor

    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Save to Project icon | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (498 KB)  

    With a reciprocating-compressor drive, large errors in the prediction of current pulsation can occur when the induction-motor steady-state characteristics are used in the analytical solution. A numerical solution, in which the induction motor is represented by its general 2-axis equations, is presented, and the results favourably compared with test measurements. The currently used equation for ind... View full abstract»

    The intensity of the electrostatic field at ground level due to transmission lines operating at 765, 1100 and 1500kV have been calculated as a function of lateral distance under the line. These results showed that the maximum field varied between 15 and 20kV/m. It was found that this field could be reduced significantly by interposing earth shield wires between the line conductors and earth; the i... View full abstract»

    A model is developed for a 2-area load-frequency control system, with the inclusion of excitation control in one area and voltage-perturbation input in the other. The change in load demand due to voltage perturbation is considered in both the areas. Optimal-control techniques are applied to this model to determine the optimum response of the system. This response is then compared with that obtaine... View full abstract»

    The general characteristics of multipass processes are discussed and a method of process modelling is proposed based on the single independent variable: total distance passed. The stability of a number of such processes, including longwall coal cutting, ploughing and metal rolling, is examined using this type of model analysed by the inverse Nyquist technique. Important stability problems, arising... View full abstract»

    A detailed system model for a vehicle travelling on an automated mainline guideway under a synchronous moving-cell control philosophy is proposed. The model takes account of position, velocity and acceleration errors as well as the dynamics of the vehicle's propulsion system and the effects of stochastic input disturbances. It is assumed that not all the vehicle's states will be available for meas... View full abstract»

    The paper presents a new method for the realisation of optimal linear-quadratic regulators, for linear time-invariant systems, using the concept of proportional-integral derivative (p.i.d.) feedback. It is shown that an optimum complete-state-feedback regulator-system response can be alternatively obtained with incomplete feedback, by introducing the derivative-control action. Considering also the... View full abstract»

    A new vacuum melting extraction and casting (v.m.e.c.) process for polyolefins has resulted in exceptionally low dielectric losses in the range 10¿3000 GHz. At 12.5 GHz, losses in polypropylene have been found to be usually below 30 ¿ rad and in a few cases as low as 5 ¿ rad. Measuring techniques have been refined to cope with these low values. Loss angles at 13 and 28 GHz can be measured in wa... View full abstract»

    An improved laboratory technique for the measurement of tree initiation voltages in polymeric insulation is described, which allows a closer approach to the conditions in extruded cable insulation. The potential importance of using divergent-field electrodes fabricated from polymeric cable screen compound is demonstrated by a reversal of the order of merit of two polymers when screen compound and ...
