    This paper reports on undergraduate student involvement in a research project at Iowa State University. The undergraduate project used computer graphics as a tool to investigate the shape of the potential energy surfaces for a multimachine power system. The over-all research project is concerned with the application of the Transient Energy Function (TEF) method in direct transient stability analys... View full abstract»

    Many control texts do not provide an adequate insight into the assumptions inherent in the describing function technique for analyzing the stability of nonlinear systems. A laboratory experiment is described which provides this background by investigating the harmonic content of the signals in an analog simulation of a third-order system which incorporates an ideal relay. The paper then proceeds t... View full abstract»

    The ability of dimensional analysis to contribute to the design of devices and systems has been greatly enhanced by the development of the SI system of units which is consistent across all disciplines. This paper shows how dimensional analysis can be used to facilitate data acquisition, to develop equations relating system variables, and to interpret data from scaled or distorted models of a given...

    Students often have difficulty understanding the Fourier transform concept and its relation to Fourier series concepts and signal spectrum concepts. Conceptual problems occur for the student in understanding the transition from the line spectra obtained with Fourier series to the continuous frequency spectra obtained with Fourier transforms and in understanding the reason that the resulting amplit...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (298 KB)

    A mathematical model based on control theory is proposed for the physical problem of the interaction (macroscopic and microscopic topics) between electric field and dielectric medium. The model predicts the phenomenon of ferroelectricity; and the Curie temperature of a given material is given by the transition point between the stable and unstable regions of the corresponding root locus diagram.
