    A tutorial on the analysis of linear antenna array performance is presented. Use is made of a rapidly converging algorithm for the calculation of element currents that include the effects of mutual impedance. The procedure makes it possible to introduce realistic antenna problems into an advanced undergraduate or first graduate antennas course. The procedure is straightforward, and lends itself to...

  • Reformulated Nyquist criterion for discrete-time systems

    Publication Year: 1989, Page(s):59 - 61
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (224 KB)

    A reformulated Nyquist criterion for discrete time systems is generalized in two ways. First, the criterion is cast in a form which allows the user to assess, directly from the mapping, the range of a parameter that yields stability. Second, the criterion is extended to apply to the case where poles at z=∞ occur in the function being mapped View full abstract»

    The author presents several novel applications of the SPICE circuit analysis computer program which should be of use to engineering students of various disciplines. Attention is directed to an implementation of SPICE for the MS-DOS operating system environment, named PSPICE. Three specific examples are presented. The first example shows a method of simultaneously displayed several parametric solut... View full abstract»

  • Solution of static electric and magnetic problems using the integral definitions of the curl and divergence operators

    Publication Year: 1989, Page(s):25 - 28
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (372 KB)

    Numerical methods are described which use a basis consisting of the values of the electric field intensity along each edge of a cell and the values of the magnetic flux density normal to each face of a cell. Definitions of the curl and divergence operators in terms of line and surface integrals respectively, as well as Gauss' law and Ampere's law, are used to define mesh and nodal equations for de...

  • The presentation of Lagrange's equations in introductory robotics courses

    Publication Year: 1989, Page(s):39 - 46
    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (616 KB)

    The topic of Lagrange's dynamic equations is presented in a fashion suitable for introductory robotics courses. The development of the material does not rely on either principles of virtual work or variational calculus. The thrust of the demonstration is that, given dynamic for a rigid body, one can always manipulate the equations to show that the equations depend exclusively on the difference bet...

    A method for calculating the total noise voltage at the output of inverting and noninverting amplifiers modeled using one- and two-pole differential gain expressions for the operational amplifier is developed. This method is adapted to deal with the case of a low-pass filter stage constructed using an operational amplifier modeled by a one-pole differential gain expression. The results obtained ar...
