  • A high power audio frequency push-pull transistor amplifier to drive an electro-magnetic vibrator

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):191 - 196
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (600 KB)

    A 1 kVA electro-magnetic vibrator, having a nominal impedance of 10 ohms and requiring a 150 V peak excitation source, is taken as a model for studying the problems involved in driving large vibrators. The output transformer, usually associated with audio power amplifiers, determines the amplifier low frequency response. A design for a high power transformerless transistor push-pull amplifier is c... View full abstract»

    The paper is an introduction to hybrid digital/analogue servo systems utilizing the application of digital techniques to conventional closed-loop servo systems. The term hybrid is used to describe systems where the error signal is derived digitally and then converted into an analogue signal for the operation of the power source. This results in an improved system accuracy compared with that obtain... View full abstract»

    The success of sea-trials of an experimental pulsed sonar system using `within-pulse¿ electronic scanning has led to the development of a new version using a considerably larger number of channels and a shorter wavelength in the water. The new system, which has 30 channels and works at a carrier frequency of 500 kc/s in the water, is designed for a maximum range of 100 yards and a scanned sector ... View full abstract»

  • Square-loop ferrites with sinusoidal magnetization

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):209 - 212
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (390 KB)

    The switching speed of square-loop ferrite cores is limited mainly by the restricted speed of domain wall movement, and not by eddy currents as in a metallic core. Their use in magnetic amplifiers and modulators allows the excitation frequency to be raised, giving greater bandwidth. This paper uses a simple theory of flux reversal in square-loop ferrites to predict switching speed with sinusoidal ... View full abstract»

    Two functions which differ only in phase and that by 90 deg, are related to each other by the Hilbert transform and to derive one from the other it is necessary to know the values of the input function at all times, past as well as future, right up to infinity. However, the amplitude error will be less than ± 1 dB if the input values are considered up to a time duration equal to the period of the... View full abstract»

    The most important requirements of a control engineer for a static switching system are that it should be easily understood and easily applied. The features considered necessary to meet these requirements are discussed. A range of units having these features has been produced and the principal unit is described in detail. Some indication of its versatility is given and other units of the system ar... View full abstract»

    The `continuous seismic profiler¿ is an instrument system for studying the structure of sediments and rock beneath the sea floor by the seismic reflection method. Pulses of sound reflected at near-normal incidence are automatically timed and correlated by the recording method used in echo sounding. The sound source is chosen to give a repeatable pulse having a broad spectrum rich in low frequenci... View full abstract»

    The techniques of activation analysis are discussed and equipment suitable for application to steel production described which uses a neutron generator based on the D¿T reaction. These techniques offer the possibility of direct process control, since the analyses can be performed automatically and the results are presented in a form which could easily be applied to a controlling mechanism.
