    The use of toroidal transformers makes possible analogue computing circuits with an accuracy of a few parts in a million. Among many applications the use of such circuits has proved of great value in the control of machine tools. Some details are given of the transformers and of design procedure, and the simulation of mathematical operations, such as multiplication and interpolation, is shown. A d... View full abstract»

    Problems peculiar to nuclear reactor and heat exchanger simulation are outlined and techniques are described which deal satisfactorily with these problems. A description is given of a machine which gives a reasonable accurate simulation of the behaviour of stations of the Calder Hall type without being too complex in design. View full abstract»

  • Analogue computers and their use in nuclear reactor safety studies

    Publication Year: 1958
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (577 KB)

    Computational and circuit techniques are described which have been used successfully to study the various aspects of nuclear plant kinetics which are relevant to reactor safety. These include an examination of the overall stability of the system, the effects of coolant pump failure, burst steam lines and control rod maloperation. Particular reference is made to a revolving capacitance storage drum... View full abstract»

    The need is stressed for simple correlation between the time and frequency responses in servomechanisms in order to rationalize synthesis procedures. Some existing methods of correlating features of the unit step response with frequency response parameters are examined and their shortcomings noted. Statistical evidence, obtained from the responses of a large number of servo systems of various type... View full abstract»

  • A decimal product accumulator

    As a step towards a digital correlator, a machine has been built which accumulates the sum of products of pairs of numbers. This device can determine the correlation between two series of numbers, provided all terms in the series are positive. The arithmetic operations are performed by dekatrons. To minimize multiplication time each product is formed in an asynchronous cycle whose duration is gove... View full abstract»
