    Accurate time delay devices are essential to both industrial and military control applications. Static time delay devices presently available provide time delays accurately and economically up to a few seconds. The emphasis on reliability in the industrial and military control fields has made it desirable that a static device be developed to generate the long time intervals required in these areas...

    A series-connected saturable reactor with capacitive loading exhibits interesting features. The circuit may exhibit instability associated with a double or three-valued output corresponding to a given input depending on previous history of operation. In some ranges of circuit parameters and forcing function, the circuit may become regenerative thus oscillating at a low frequency modulating the car... View full abstract»

    Although there are many methods and procedures for analyzing complex circuits, probably the best-known general approach is to apply an organized, systematic procedure to the combination of the analytic expressions for the voltage-current characteristics of the individual circuit elements. To be able to apply this method of attack, it is essential that the characteristics of the individual circuit ... View full abstract»

    It has been demonstrated1 that the behavior of magnetic amplifiers without diodes can be analytically described by a set of linear difference equations relating the average values of voltages and currents at the ports. For most circuits this representation gives values which are accurate to within 1 or 2% of actual even for a large variety of waveforms of port and supply voltages. The reason for t...

  • Standards for measurement of brightness intensification in fluoroscopic image intensifiers

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):504 - 506
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (958 KB)

    It is convenient to characterize devices for production of intensified X-ray fluoroscopic images in terms of their brightness as compared with conventional fluoroscopic screens. Thus, an X-ray image intensifier is described having an intensification factor of 200 or 500 or 1,000 meaning that the image presented to the viewer is 200 or 500 or 1,000 times brighter than the image would be if he used ...

    By consideration of a detailed example, the use of iterated Laplace transformations is shown to be an important technique for the solution of combined circuit-field problems, i.e., problems in which the simultaneous solution of ordinary and partial differential equations is necessary. One- and 2-mesh circuits in which eddy currents in a rectangular magnetic core play a significant role are analyze... View full abstract»

    The conventional procedure for designing systems with many physical parameters is discussed and the translation of this procedure into digital computer operations is considered. Although it is possible to code all of the routine design calculations for a computer, it is impossible to program the insight of the design engineer. It is shown that the determination of the physical parameters for the o... View full abstract»

  • The numerical-graphical method in the design of multiterminal switching circuits

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1131 KB)

    Up to the present time there has been no satisfactory direct method for designing multiterminal switching circuits. A common approach is to consider each output individually and derive a 2-terminal network for it. An attempt is then made to change the form of the individual 2-terminal networks, if possible, so that combinations between paths may be facilitated. This may be done, for example, by al...

    In a series-connected saturable reactor working in the proportional mode with its control winding fed by a direct current from a high impedance source, the gate current as a function of time has a rectangular shape and its amplitude, in ampere turns, is equal to the magnitude of the control current.1 Full-wave rectification of the gate current yields a direct current closely proportional to the co...

    Several papers have been published on the correlation between the control characteristics of magnetic amplifiers and the magnetization characteristics of magnetic cores.1¿5 However, the approaches hitherto inaugurated on this subject of great importance have failed in elucidating the problem concerning the effect of control-circuit resistance (CCR) on the control characteristics of full-wave magn...

    Shortly after the announcement1 of the invention of the Bell Solar Battery, Bell Telephone Laboratories undertook an exploratory development program with a twofold purpose. First, device designers wanted to learn how to make large quantities of silicon photodiodes, how to devise reliable connections to the active parts of the diode, and if possible, how to increase the realizable efficiency of con...

    One of the objectives of analyzing a system is to determine if there are periodic oscillations and, if so, what their amplitude and frequency will be; another objective is to determine the magnitudes of output errors and output powers, when the statistical character of the input signal and noises are known. Methods are given for calculating the output power and the error power for nonlinearities d... View full abstract»

    The transference or effective gain of a piecewise linear component is derived. The output autocorrelation function of a clipper, a dead zone, and a general piecewise linear nondynamic component is obtained by a double integration of the second probability density. The output power is a sum of Gaussian error integrals. This can be divided into fundamental or correlated power, and distortion power d... View full abstract»

    Up to the present time, the completion of an incoming call to a private branch exchange (PBX) extension telephone has been dependent upon a human attendant. She must determine what extension station is desired and do the proper switching of the call from the incoming trunk to the station. Indialing provides a means whereby the call is dialed directly from the general exchange system to the PBX sta... View full abstract»

    The conventional electric network, consisting of linear or one-dimensional RLC (resistance-inductance-capacitance) elements, may be generalized by adding to it planar-, cubic-, etc., up to k-dimensional RLC elements. The resultant geometrical configuration of 0-, 1-, 2-¿ to k-dimensional spatial networks interconnected into one structure is called, in combinatorial topology, a ¿polyhedron.¿ Its...

    The inductance of an a-c magnet is a function of its coil as well as its magnetic structure. Hence, if the total equivalent permeance of the magnetic field is known, the inductance can be obtained from the equation $L = N^{2} p_{eq} (10^{-8}) eqno {hbox{(1)}}$ where L = inductance, henrys N = series turns in the coil peq = equivalent permeance, lines/ampere Because computing the permeance of even ...

    This paper describes a special-purpose matrix inversion technique developed in the System-Planning Branch of TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority). This is the first known use of the method. It is particularly applicable to the inversion of matrices that describe power system impedances or admittances. As outlined, the technique is not entirely general. It requires division by elements of the major dia... View full abstract»

    Considerable difficulty is usually encountered by the novice in understanding how stored-program information-processing systems operate, and how they can be programed. While conventional teaching tools are definitely inadequate in this case, the use of a commercial computer for demonstrations does not provide an ideal solution either, because the machine tends to overwhelm the novice with its spee...

    It has been known for some time that long-distance (100¿150 miles) very-high frequency propagation exists, and is capable of wide-band performance. This paper follows the empirical investigation of these fields to their ultimate use as signal sources for a community antenna system (CATV) and a television station (WSVA-TV). View full abstract»

    As thermal deterioration of electrical insulating materials is directly connected with their lives it has been an important problem since electric machines and apparatuses were put to practical use. Nevertheless, a thorough study has not been made on the subject because quite a long time is required for testing the lives of the materials and also because numberless combinations and many working co...
