    An approximate analysis of the operation of thermoelectric generators with temperature dependent parameters is presented. Expressions for the optimum current and optimum area to length ratio are obtained for the cases of maximum efficiency and of maximum power output per unit volume. The principal assumption made in the analysis is that the temperature distribution along the legs of the generator is determined, to the first order of approximation, by the thermal conductivity of the material. The equations derived in the analysis are applied to a particular solvable case, and the approximate results obtained from them are compared with the exact results. View full abstract»

  • Radio Telemetry of Stagnation Pressure from a Wind Tunnel Model Magnetically Supported in Supersonic Flow

    During a set of aerodynamic tests in a Mach number 2. 4 wind tunnel, it was proven feasible to telemeter stagnation pressure measurements from within a magnetically suspended, ferromagnetic model. State-of-the-art, f-m radio telemetry, developed for hypervelocity range use, was employed. Although data at the outset of each of three trials reflect errors of less than three percent, inordinate frequency vs temperature interaction introduced intolerable shifts in telemeter center frequency as testing progressed. Several methods may be used to reduce these interactions. Magnetogasdynamic effects arising from the use of the magnetic model suspension technique are discussed in an appendix, and are shown to be negligible in most wind tunnel testing.

  • Nonlinear Control System Design Using the Zero Force Curve

    This paper presents a design procedure using the Zero Force Curve for applying nonlinear elements in control systems. Specifically a method is presented for designing a nonlinear controller to achieve a desired step input response in a second order linear system. In a sense, the controller provides optimum response in that the desired response to the step input can be obtained with good fidelity. The body of the paper consists of the development of the design theory along with its application to several examples. View full abstract»

  • Measurement Errors: Undetected Defects and False Alarms

    Publication Year: 1964 , Page(s): 30 - 35

    During checkout of space or weapon systems, two types of errors can occur. These are (1) not detecting an existing defect and (2) calling a non-defective system defective. Equations are developed which relate the two error types to test equipment accuracy and specification limits of system parameters. The problem is considered on both the individual measurement level and the total system test level. The results of the paper can be used to specify test equipment accuracy design criteria, or to determine the probabilities of the two types of errors when test equipment design is already fixed.

  • Three and Four Coil Systems for Homogeneous Magnetic Fields

    Publication Year: 1964 , Page(s): 36 - 45

    In the magnetic testing of satellites and spacecraft, very homogeneous fields are needed. One method of obtaining such fields is to use a number of circular coils on a common axis. The parameters of the best three- and four-coil systems were obtained by making zero as many terms as possible of the series for the field along the axis of the system. The parameters are presented in the form of tables and curves. View full abstract»
