Turbo-alternator modeling and control
This thesis is concerned with the problem of designing a constant coefficient feedback controller that will allow arbitrary pole placement of a single synchronous generator connected through a reactance to an infinite bus. ...
A study of the effect on dynamics of a nuclear boiler modification
This report discusses the study of a modification in the structure of a boiler representative of the type used aboard nuclear-powered ships. The modification involves the relocation of the feed water injection point from ...
Effect of dimensions on the efficiency of radiant energy cells
This work deals with the enhancement of the quantum efficiency and photovoltaic energy conversion efficiency of a P-N semiconducting cell by optimizing the dimensions of the cell. Based on the Shockley-Read statistics a ...
Measurements of the temperature dependence of electron-hole pair creation in silicon nuclear radiation detectors
The semiconductor radiation detector may be looked upon as a solid-state ionization chamber in which the energy of incident radiation is dissipated, resulting in the creation of electron-hole pairs in the detector medium. ...
Analysis of medical waveforms
A discussion of the necessity of automation of medical waveform analysis and of methods of performing this analysis is given as motivation for the project reported by this paper. This is followed by a short discussion of ...
The structure and behavior of cellular automata
A cellular automaton (or CA) is an interconnected set of finite state machines (or cells) such that the inputs of each cell are connected to the outputs of k "neighboring" cells, and the next state of each cell is a function ...
Magnetic tape coder and decoder
The need for the magnetic tape coder and decoder system and the requirements set forth for its operation are discussed. The coder output which is to be recorded serially on one channel of a frequency modulated tape recorder ...
A low frequency oscillator
Inferring Spectral and Spatiotemporal Dependencies from Data and its Application to Epilepsy
A fundamental problem in many science and engineering disciplines is inferring the characteristics of a physical or biological system from the dependencies in data recorded from the system. The dependencies in data, ...
