1. ### Engineering Induction motor problem

Hi @anorlunda , So i know from the graph windage/friction losses constitute the power lost when the stator voltage=0V. I have actually reworked this question and got something im more happy with. I've actually said the windage/friction loss is 220W from extending the graph to 0V. I know that VL...
2. ### Engineering Induction motor problem

So I've attached my graph and found that the windage/friction losses occur roughly around 230Watts. I just dont know how i further explain the magnetising current I0. I know I0 = input current on no load. So do i assumed from P = √3 x VL x IL x CosФ that CosФ=230/√3*220*6.8= 0.0849 or...
3. ### LADSIM PLC Bytronic ICT3 Help

Attempt as above. image attached of Bytronic ICT3
4. ### PLC Question

Thank you, if No.1 is looking okay, i'll plod onto number 2 and get the rest answered for confirmation, thank you scott :)
5. ### PLC Question

Yeah you are correct, i meant IND 3 for rung 5 (N/O contactor 3/2). Also could you relink it, nothing there :) thanks!
6. ### PLC Question

Homework Statement Uploaded as image 1 I will show my workings for 2 if 1 are in the right direction I also don't understand what is meant as I/O Designation charts (nowhere in my study notes) Homework Equations None The Attempt at a Solution Uploaded as image 2 is my attempt.
7. ### Sketch the waveform to represent the transient response

@rude man so after searching through second order system responses I have a graph that looks like this. How does it look?
8. ### Sketch the waveform to represent the transient response

Apologies I think i've gotten myself confused... I think im looking too deep into it. I'll be back when i have some form of graph! Thanks for your help @rude man
9. ### Sketch the waveform to represent the transient response

This is what i'm unsure of, if it mentioned one of the above i could work through it via my notes... I've only encountered step change input for second order systems. Thus i understand which ones are under-damped (a/b) and which are over-damped c if this is the case. But how do i draw this? only...
10. ### Sketch the waveform to represent the transient response

Homework Statement Sketch, on a set of common axes, waveforms to represent the transient response of circuits having transfer functions with the following parameters: a) ζ = 0.5, ω = 1×10^3 rad s^-1 b) ζ = 0.2, ω = 2×10^3 rad s^-1 c) ζ = 2, ω = 1×10^3 rad s^-1 Homework Equations wd=wo√(1-ζ^2)...
11. ### Controlled rectification question

@jim hardy I'm still unsure on this question... sorry.
12. ### Controlled rectification question

Apologies i didn't add the image. So are you saying to integrate the sine wave between T/4 & T? Sorry only thing i found in my notes was very little other than the statement above.
13. ### Controlled rectification question

Homework Statement a) If the firing angle is set for alpha=(pi/3) estimate the power dissipated in the bulb if it is rated at 100 W and the voltage source is 230 V @ 50 Hz. b) An anomaly that can occur in controlled rectification is drift of the firing angle on one half cycle, so causing an...
14. ### Fourier Analysis and the Significance of Odd and Even Functions

Okay think i got it now :) thanks for your help.
15. ### Fourier Analysis and the Significance of Odd and Even Functions

Oh yeah! So by shifting it to the right by T/2 you would get a regular square wave? and thus making it have only sine terms. With regards to to whether they have symmetry I actually cannot tell now, it doesn't look symmetrial about the y axis so it's not an even function but it doesn't have...
16. ### Fourier Analysis and the Significance of Odd and Even Functions

Homework Statement Q1. a) In relation to Fourier analysis state the meaning and significance of 4 i) odd and even functions ii) half-wave symmetry {i.e. f(t+π)= −f(t)}. Illustrate each answer with a suitable waveform sketch. b) State by inspection (i.e. without performing any formal analysis)...
17. ### Transmission line Secondary Coefficients

Thanks @gneill! Only bit i was struggling on! But I hoped it'll be as simple as use the equation and plug in values. Helpful as always :)
18. ### Transmission line Secondary Coefficients

https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=%E2%88%9A((2%2B(16%CF%80)i)%2F(0.0005%2Bi(0.00046%CF%80))) Here's my workings using wolframalpha
19. ### Transmission line Secondary Coefficients

l Following onto this question i got all the same workings however we needed to find Zo aswell. Using with the values above I got Zo=179.427+j26.5060 Ω or in polar Zo=181.375 /_+8.403° Ω (sorry don't currently have software to do the polar expression so used /_ to signify the angle).Does this...
20. ### Simply supported loaded beam

Good! So in agreeance now that the new stress should be 8.68MPa and the percentage reduction is correct?
21. ### Simply supported loaded beam

@CivilSigma Hey buddy, i realised i messed up on figures for e) i figured out the new maximum stress was 8.68MPa (somehow my calculated messed up) but (8.333*10^3*0.12)/(1.152*10^-4) wasn't 6.58*10^6 (6.58MPa) but 8.68MPa, fancy checking my math xD this gives me a new percentage reduction of...
22. ### Simply supported loaded beam

phew! that question has killed me! it was a bit brutal. I have another one which my instructor has said will probably test myself (to do with column failure types and length of which buckling will happen etc. in a hollow cylindrical column)... i'll attempt it first and if not i guess i'll be...
23. ### Simply supported loaded beam

So more like this picture? I’ve placed the 0 next to the neutral axis (just to show it’s at that point), and added a negative sign to the tensile stress. Does this now satisfy the question 2c)? If so is everything overall looking like a correct solution to the whole question? Ignore the...
24. ### Simply supported loaded beam

Okay so below is my picture. After we’ve gone through c) can I just get a double confirm everything is good :) thanks again!
25. ### Simply supported loaded beam

@CivilSigma thats brilliant this question baffled me for the best part. D I’m happy with but E just to confirm my thought of a 47.4 % reduction is correct? That seems quite a lot for only a 20mm increas in depth, but if you agree I’m happy! Lastly, sorry I’ve been busy but if I tag you and...
