    The CAMAC instrumentation system developed by the ESONE Committee of European laboratories has been endorsed by the U. S. AEC NIM Committee as a dataway system complementary to the NIM (Nuclear Instrument Module) system. CAMAC is described in a general way in this introductory paper which is followed by papers that discuss the system in greater detail. This paper is an updated version of the intro...

    The basic purpose of CAMAC is to provide a standardized method for transferring data and control information between instrurrentation modules and a digital controller. CAMAC encompasses both a hardware standard for housing the modular components of a system and an electrical and logical standard for the control "language" used to effect the information transfer. The CAMAC specification contains th... View full abstract»

    The typical CAMAC system is operated in conjunction with a small computer. In the usual case, the computer acts as a repository for data generated by CAMAC, and also controls and directs the CAMAC operations. This paper discusses some of the aspects of the hardware interface, and also some of the interaction between the computer and the CAMAC system. View full abstract»

    Since most CAMAC systems include computers, the generation and maintenance of computer programs may represent a substantial fraction of the effort involved in assembling a CAMAC system. The effort involved can be reduced if standard software can be used, but the generality of the hardware and the variety of computers and interfaces make the production of efficient, general software difficult. Some... View full abstract»

  • Sumary of CAMAC: Status and Outlook

    Is everyone going to use CAMAC? Probably not. Does CAMAC represent all the latest thinking in data handling? Again the answer is no. However, one must remember that the time from conception to delivery of a computer makes it partially obsolete before it is ever used. This is the price of progress. A similar gestation time was inevitable for CAMAC. If we were to begin today, CAMAC would be differen... View full abstract»

  • Adaptive Nuclear Reactor Control Based on Optimal Low-Order Linear Models

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):72 - 82
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1367 KB)

    The problem of optimally controlling the power level changes of a nuclear reactor for a wide variety of cost functions is considered. Admissible performance indexes are arbitrary functions of the power level and its derivative as well as of the reactivity input and its derivative. The proposed method is based on the use of optimal second-order models, the parameters of which are computed on-line t... View full abstract»

    In this paper, control systems with multiple transport lags are analyzed using the parameter-plane and parameter-space methods. A chemical system operated for the automatic control of a nuclear reactor is considered, and a comparison of the result with current literature is given. View full abstract»

  • Stabilization of a Coupled-Core Reactor Control System Using Artificial Dither

    The use of a perfect relay in the automatic control of a coupled-core reactor results in an undesirable limit-cycle, regardless of the reactivity rate demand. In order to enable the use of a perfect relay, artificial dither is inserted into the control system loop. This paper presents the principle and establishes the nature of the stabilization signal that eliminates possible limit-cycle in the s... View full abstract»

    Second generation operational amplifiers, which are widely used in space applications, show considerable sensitivity to electron irradiation at fluences corresponding to unshielded long term operation in the earth synchronous orbit. Surface and bulk radiation effects are described for different device types. It is shown that the surface effects are very process dependent. Guidelines are given for ... View full abstract»

    A straightforward (pedestrian) approximation scheme is applied to a transient electromagnetic field problem associated with a finite-length cylindrical cavity bounded by perfectly conducting walls. The cavity is filled with a homogeneous lossy dielectric material. Analytic expressions for the zeroth-and first-order terms of the perturbation solution for each of the relevant components of the elect... View full abstract»
