  • Techniques of frequency synthesis

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):1057 - 1077

    A brief outline of the initial development of synthetiser techniques is followed by a description of two early types, and reference is given to a comprehensive survey in the late 1960s. The concurrent advance in solid-state technology has had a major impact on synthetiser development, mainly in regard to divider- and voltage-controlled-oscillator techniques, resulting in improved performance combi...

  • Surface-acoustic-wave components, devices and applications

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):1078 - 1110

    Since the mid-1960s, there has been a strong upsurge of interest in the propagation of surface acoustic waves on solids. The stimulus for this interest came from the realisation that simple, compact, and potentially cheap surface-acoustic-wave devices could be made which performed valuable signal-processing functions principally at intermediate frequencies. In a very short space of time these devi... View full abstract»

    This review covers the range of basic large a.c. motors, comprising squirrel-cage and slip-ring induction, synchronous and a.c.-commutator motors, in the output range of 1¿20/30 MW, and the size range of 0.5¿30 kW per rev/min, with centre heights ranging from 450 to 1250 mm. The underlying theme may be described in general terms as `system design¿ in the widest sense; i.e. the effect of the env... View full abstract»

  • Electricity in horticulture

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):1133 - 1164

    British horticulture has developed from a way of life to an industry run on factory lines, where all facets of growing, from seed sowing to marketing, depend on precise control of the environment and maximum operating efficiency. The need to improve the output and quality of greenhouse crops has demanded a strict control of plant climate; the increasing cost of labour, the drift of workers to fact... View full abstract»

  • Computer-controlled road-traffic signal systems in the United Kingdom

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):1165 - 1180
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2739 KB)

    The paper is concerned with dynamic control, and, in particular, traffic-signalling systems that use computers as the controlling element. In the UK, such systems have two principal applications: the first deals with traffic problems in cities and towns, and the other applies to motorways. Area traffic control is the name given to those systems that apply to cities and towns, and traffic control f... View full abstract»

  • Ergonomics in control

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):1181 - 1192
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2074 KB)

    Discussions of completely automatic plants, pilotless aircraft and other fantasies of the automation euphoria have now become outmoded and replaced by more rational considerations concerning the proper integration of men into complex systems. Ergonomics is the technology concerned with the application of the human sciences to problems of the effective deployment of manpower. This review attempts t... View full abstract»
