  • Mobile v.h.f. and u.h.f. radio systems in the UK

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):953 - 958
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    Mobile radio systems, operating in the v.h.f. and u.h.f. bands, are widely used in the United Kingdom for short-range land, maritime and aeronautical services. In tracing the growth of these services the preponderance of land-mobile units is evident, and the review concentrates on land-mobile aspects, referring to the others mainly when differences in equipment or practice are significant.

  • Telephone-traffic techniques

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):979 - 992

    Given well designed and reliable equipment, the efficiency of a telecommunication system depends on having sufficient equipment to meet requirements for normal service, with a reasonable margin for peak traffic. At the same time, the cost of the network must be low enough to permit the provision of an efficient service to the subscriber on acceptable terms. The determination of the amount and arra...

  • Development, design and use of ripple control

    Publication Year: 1975
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2660 KB)

    Many of the earlier patents for ripple control were British, and the development of the single-frequency systems was pioneered in Britain. Nevertheless, interest in these systems lapsed in the UK after the Second World War, whereas in Europe it increased until in many countries ripple control of consumers' loads became standard practice. The paper reviews the history of the development of ripple c... View full abstract»

  • Overhead-line practice

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):1009 - 1017
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1678 KB)

    Overhead lines have been in use in the UK since the beginning of electricity supply, those erected prior to 1882 being based on American practice. The 1882 Act established rules regarding the consent for the erection of lines, but made no reference to technical considerations. Further Electricity Acts followed, but it was not until 1928, when the UK Electricity Commissioners issued their first gen... View full abstract»

  • Electrical standards of measurement. Part 1: D.C. and low-frequency standards

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):1018 - 1036
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2787 KB)

    The paper reviews recent developments in electrical masurement techniques in the context of the UK national standards maintained by the National Physical Laboratory. Part 1 describes the primary electrical standards, their derivation from the SI units, and their relation to the standards maintained by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures. From the primary standards a number of working ... View full abstract»

  • Electrical standards of measurement. Part 2: R.F. and microwave standards

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):1037 - 1053
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2798 KB)

    The review covers standards and measurement techniques for guided waves in the frequency range from about 1 MHz to 100 GHz. The organisation for the provision and dissemination of microwave standards, which has been established in the UK in recent years, is described. Standards have been provided for the measurement of power, attenuation, impedance and noise in coaxial line and waveguide. A brief ... View full abstract»

  • Electrical standards of measurement. Part 3: Submillimetre-wave measurements and standards

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):1054 - 1070
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2901 KB)

    In the submillimetre-wave region (100GHz¿10THz), standards are not so well established as at lower frequencies. New measurement techniques are being developed and are finding application in a variety of technological fields with a consequent growth in the need for standards. This part of the paper starts by reviewing recent developments of sources, detectors and measurement systems based on Fouri... View full abstract»

  • Direct-voltage references

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):1071 - 1076
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (911 KB)

    Precise sources of e.m.f have existed mainly in three forms: the electrolytic cell, the gas-discharge tube and the avalanche or Zener diode. The paper attempts to place these various voltage-reference devices in historical and technical perspective. The properties of several types of cell are given, followed by a similar treatment of glow-discharge and corona-discharge tubes and finally a rather f... View full abstract»

  • Computer-aided management techniques

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):1077 - 1088
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2193 KB)

    The paper outlines the areas in which computers are of significant assistance to management, and the nature of the assistance given. The evolution of management techniques, in so far as it is relevant to the theme, is compared with the evolution of commercial data-processing systems. A progression from a state of maximum conflict between management and computer systems to a potential identity of p... View full abstract»
