    Presents a means of predicting rain attenuation for a 20/44 GHz SATCOM system for Canada. Rain attenuation statistics have been estimated, but not verified experimentally, for most of the Canadian territory below 69°N latitude for a geostationary SATCOM system in the 10-45 GHz range with arbitrary link parameters. The effect of site diversity on these results can be estimated. Long-term exp... View full abstract»

    A method is developed that permits the solution of scattering by arrays of a finite number of anisotropic cylinders in a convenient and accurate form. It is based on an analytic formulation using the boundary value problem and an application of a point matching technique. The method is subsequently applied to study the scattering properties of linear arrays of magnetized ferrite cylinders, and to ... View full abstract»

  • Coupled finite and boundary element method in electromagnetic problems

    Publication Year: 1990 , Page(s): 56 - 62

    An efficient numerical method known as the coupled finite and boundary element method (CFBM) is proposed and developed to treat electromagnetic scattering and waveguide discontinuity problems. The proposed approach is based upon the coupling of the finite element and boundary element methods. The respective merits of these methods are extracted to yield much faster solutions and to enhance computa... View full abstract»

  • Solving reactive-power dispatch by a penalty function/linear programming method

    Publication Year: 1990 , Page(s): 63 - 72
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (7051 KB)  

    Three criteria are used for the formulation of the nonlinear reactive-power dispatch problem: (1) the minimization of real-power transmission losses (RPL); (2) the feasibility enforcement of the system's violated constraints (FEC); and (3) the minimum deviation of node voltages from specified values (AVD). These problems are mathematically defined in terms of a full set of control variables: gener... View full abstract»

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3058 KB)  

    Presents research into the design and implementation of an environmental controller for energy-efficient passive solar homes. The device is a user-friendly adaptive controller which allows extensive parameterization of the controlled space. Controller software provides capabilities for a seven-day, four-temperature setback thermostat. Control routines allow for the optimization of the passive sola... View full abstract»
