    This paper presents a graphical design method for common continuous-time and discrete-time compensators. The method is based upon a set of design charts which have been generated using appropriately normalized compensator transfer functions. These charts allow compensator parameters to be determined with minimum calculations, and without going through the trial and error procedure presented in mos... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the influence of permeability on flux density in magnetic circuits is relegated to a minor importance. Here, permeability is considered as a mere measure of the effectiveness of amperian currents in increasing magnetic intensity. Based on this interpretation, the solution of problems related to magnetic circuits excited by permanent-magnets is reduced to the solution of problems rel... View full abstract»

    A CAD-system for logic design based on the use of IEEE standard logic symbols is described. The system, called DEMET, can be used to specify the operation of digital logic components entirely graphically with IEEE symbols. DEMET can automatically interpret the symbols, and generate functional simulation models for them. IEEE symbols can be simulated with a built-in logic simulator. DEMET uses comp...

    Two methods are presented in this paper for removing single variable static hazards in Boolean Functions. The first method is a hand calculation method that uses a single variable static hazard cover algorithm. The hand calculation method can be used in the classroom and does not require computer assistance. The second method involves using a single variable static hazard cover software synthesis ...

    The high computational burden posed by modern control algorithms often precludes their industrial application using present day microcomputers. We evaluate the computational load of different logical and arithmetic operations and the capabilities of several computing systems (software and hardware). Real-time limitations are alleviated through the adoption of general techniques associated with the... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a specific application of cepstral processing is considered to illustrate homomorphic signal processing. In particular, an analytic expression is derived for the frequency domain representation of a signal that has been recovered from a multi-path signal with cepstral processing. The multi-path signal is composed of time-delayed, scaled versions of the transmitted signal, and the tr... View full abstract»

    The maximum power transfer theorem provides the condition which the load resistance or impedance must satisfy for maximum power absorption from the source network. This paper reviews the conventional maximum power transfer theorem and presents a modification to the theorem by incorporating a measure of the relative importance of power transmission efficiency over power transferred to the load View full abstract»
