Transient Definition and 11 Discussions

ECHELON, originally a secret government code name, is a surveillance program (signals intelligence/SIGINT collection and analysis network) operated by the United States with the aid of four other signatory states to the UKUSA Security Agreement: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, also known as the Five Eyes.Created in the late 1960s to monitor the military and diplomatic communications of the Soviet Union and its Eastern Bloc allies during the Cold War, the ECHELON project became formally established in 1971.By the end of the 20th century, the system referred to as "ECHELON" had evolved beyond its military and diplomatic origins into "a global system for the interception of private and commercial communications" (mass surveillance and industrial espionage).

    Motor simulation in Maxwell

    Hello, I'm trying to simulate a 3 phase hysteresis motor with 4 poles, 36 slots, 220 input voltage peak for each phase, 50Hz, specified dimensions and 0.6 N.m output torque in maxwell transient. The magnetic material used is LNG52 which is also known as alnico600, alnico5DG(ACA52) and alcomax...

    Unsteady flow of water being discharged from a tank

    I am currently modeling the altitude that a water rocket can attain. In order to do this i am first modeling the the thrust phase. Due to the water mass decreasing with time (the same goes for the pressure - it decreases over time as the water is expelled out of the nozzle). This is an...

    Electronics - Have I found the transient current correctly?

    Homework Statement A step voltage of 120v is applied to a series CR circuit. C = (4x10^(-6))F R = (20x10^(3))Ω When the capacitor is fully charged the supply voltage is removed. Using KVL and Laplace transforms obtain an equation for the transient circuit current, given when t = 0, the voltage...

    Droop control (load sharing in AC Mains distribution networks)

    Hi, I have quite a superficial understanding of Droop control: I'm not after a super technically detailed explanation, but if anyone has any more detailed sources for how it is...

    Peak-hold equivalent amplitude for transient vibration

    I have a question regarding transient vibration data I received that was processed into a peak-hold equivalent amplitude (units = g). I have come across peak-hold before which is a type of "averaging" that retains the highest values from each estimate in random vibration overlap processing and...

    How to design coil terminals for maxwell3D transient?

    In magnetostatic simulation model I design the winding as a volume of copper and assign a single plane on the volume of copper as current excitation terminal to define the winding current value and its direction. In transient model when I am creating coil terminal for a winding, I need to...

    Synchronous Machine Transent parameters from sudden 3phase Short Circuit

    Hi, So we're doing this Lab on Transient reactance of a synch generator and I'm reading Sarma's classic: Electric Machines Steady-state theory and Dynamic performance p. 474-479 But I can't see how to get the actual exponential time constants for the sub-transient and transient reactances? Thanks

    Ansoft Maxwell 14.0 -- solve for the magnetic fields created due to the eddy currents?

    So I'm trying to run some 3D transient simulations based on magnetic field focusing/shielding, but I'm not getting the expected results. Does anyone know if Ansoft Maxwell 14.0 will solve for the magnetic fields created due to the eddy currents? It doesn't appear to.
