    Information is presented for designing and predicting the optical-electrical performance of a concentrating solar cell panel. Various factors affecting performance are discussed and evaluated. Basic equations, expressing performance in terms of the design parameters and variables, are developed, and typical performance curves are given for an earthspace application. View full abstract»

    In this paper, a method is discussed for calculating the load saturation curves of the inductor machine. The theory has been verified both by comparison with actual tests under load, and by stationary flux measurements on a machine under simulated load conditions. Both checks showed good agreement between test and calculated values. For these tests a homopolar polyphase inductor-alternator was use... View full abstract»

    Existing data on railroad car plain bearing temperatures are presented and interpreted by means of equivalent thermal circuits. Analyzing the radiation from the car truck, relating it to the characteristics of infrared measuring equipment, and discussing the handling of resulting data¿all suggest approaches to more efficient use of wayside hotbox detectors. Effects of some ambient phenomena are p... View full abstract»

  • A Technique for the Synthesis of Linear Nonstationary Feedback Systems I-The Approximation Problem

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):186 - 192
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1322 KB)

    In this paper, and in a companion paper, a technique for the synthesis of linear nonstationary feedback systems is presented. This paper deals with the approximation problem, i.e., a method is developed whereby a realizable weighting function which produces a desired output when subjected to a polynomial input can be generated. Certain conditions which must be fulfilled by the outputs are also dev... View full abstract»

    In this paper, and a companion paper, a technique for the synthesis of linear nonstationary feedback systems is presented. This paper deals with the synthesis problem, i.e., a method is developed whereby a given weighting function can be synthesized as a feedback system. The problem of synthesizing a nonstationary weighting function as a feedback system when constrained bv a fixed plant is also so... View full abstract»

  • Multiparameter Self-Adaptation Using Auxiliary Models

    For a system with N-variable parameters, an N-dimensional parameter space defines a matrix of all possible parameter combinations. By subdividing the parameter space, assigning an auxiliary model to each subspace, and using them to scan, all values in the parameter matrix may be tested rapidly. Logic operations select the proper auxiliary model and initiate adjustments of the system parameters. View full abstract»

  • Stability Considerations in the Synthesis of Time-Varying Feedback Systems

    In a recent paper1 the synthesis technique proposed by Guillemin for liniear stationary systems2 was extended for nonstationary feedback systems. It is to be expected, however, that stability problems may arise when applying the method for unstable or nonminimum phase plants, as it does in the time-invariant case. In this investigation it is shown that stability of the system... View full abstract»

    The problem of minimum-time angular velocity control of a spinning space body, with a sinigle axis of symmetry, is examined. The control thrusts are assumned bounded. Two-axis, gimballed, and single-axis controls are considered. The optimal controls law is derived for each method. Comparison of the response times indicates that gimballed control is best.

    When synithesizinig a linear system which is described bv a linear ordinary differential equation, it is desirable to have the equatiotn reduced to the lowest possible order since the number of components increases with the order of the equation. In this paper the concept of reducibility of linear differential equations is discussed. Reducibility is defined as the property which allows a different... View full abstract»

  • Justification and Limitation of a 2-Parameter 2-Adjustment Self-Adaptive System

    Various specific cases of systems employing a plant with large variations in two parameters together with the existence of additive measurement noise in the output are analyzed. These systems include both two-degree-of-freedom conventional passive systems, and self-adaptive systems. It is shown that the reduction of the effects of the measurment noise justifies the employment of a plant-adaptive s... View full abstract»

    This paper is concerned with a linear system whose transfer function can be represented by the gain constant, poles, and zeros, the parameters of the system. These parameters vary with time in an unknown manner. A scheme is presented in which these parameters are tracked. The system can be readily realized in terms of simple analogue components. The novel idea presented here lies in the fact that ... View full abstract»
