  • Jacobs, D. M. (Danver Maxwill) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In this thesis a new voltage control method is developed for a three-phase inverter supply system. The inverter supply system consist of a Permanent Magnet Generator, a three-phase rectifier, a three-phase ...
  • Visser, Abraham Johannes (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis covers the development of a multilevel cascaded inverter for the purpose of costeffective transformerless series dip compensation. Of all known power quality problems, voltage dips are the ...
  • Green, Jeremy James (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Statistical experimental design techniques are powerful tools that are often approached with suspicion and apprehension by experimenters. The trend is to avoid any statistically structured and ...
  • Crause, J. C. (James Christoffel) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In this study the deoiling and fractionation of paraffin wax using supercritical fluid extraction (SCFE) has been investigated. SCFE was compared with state-of-the-art processes such as wax crystallisation, ...
  • Goussard, Charl Leonard (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis describes an algorithm to extract primitive geometric entities (flat planes, spheres or cylinders, as determined by the user's inputs) from unstructured, unsegmented point clouds. The ...
  • Boshielo, Babudi Turcia (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: One of the requirements for satellite telemetry systems is the provision of reliable telemetry data to allow accurate monitoring of the satellite status. This thesis focuses on the design of telemetry ...
  • Brand, W. W. (Willem Wouter) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: First-order second-moment structural reliability methods are used to assess the reliability of a prestressed concrete beam. This beam was designed for imposed office floor loads and partitions following ...
  • Banda, Wezi (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Slag cleaning has become a common practice at many smelters in the nonferrous industry to maximize recovery of valuable metals. However, during the carbothermic reduction of nonferrous slag to recover ...
  • Jakoet, J. (Jamiela) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In an attempt to improve the efficiency of the transport system, the national government has instituted a new tender system for public transport contracts. Small bus and taxi operators are unfamiliar ...
  • De Villiers, Wernich (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A frequency domain Power Line Carrier (PLC) simulation program, with the ability to simulate signal attenuation including the coupling equipment, was developed. This simulation program was put to the ...
  • Schwarz, Cara Elsbeth (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2001-12)
    Current methods for wax fractionation result in products with large polydispersity, and due to the high temperatures required, thermal degradation of the wax is often incurred. The need for an alternative process thus ...
  • Drew, Margaret Jane (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Recently concern has been raised regarding effluent from wine cellars, as it often does not comply with environmental legislation. It was with this in mind that the effluent problem at Ashton Cellars ...
  • Muller, Martinette (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The application of artificial neural networks to microwave circuits is investigated. A neural network model is developed for two parallel waveguides coupled by a longitudinal slot in the common broad ...
  • Cardoza, Andrew Robert (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: SRMA currently used on the SUNSAT field station is an effective MAC layer protocol but lacks several features. Sufficient support for flexible communication, acknowledgement of individual data packets, ...
  • Ven, Nelke C. Van de (Nelke Cornelia) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Inorganic membranes offer numerous advantages, such as stability at high temperatures and a long lifetime. Two Russian professors invented and patented a method for manufacturing a tubular ceramic ...
  • Schoonees, Jacobus Stefanus (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The process of sand being moved parallel to the coast by wave and current action is called longshore (sediment) transport. Knowledge oflongshore transport is essential for the design of breakwaters ...
  • Bulman, Andrew (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2001-12)
    This Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA) was commissioned in March 1998 as a supporting document to an application for the rezoning of an ert in Noordhoek from general housing to commercial use. The proposal at the time was ...
  • Van der Ham, Gert A. (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The trends in worldwide fuel consumption and availability were studied, these indicated a bigger growth in gaseous fuel use than that of crude oil over the last decade. The economics (cost of converting ...
  • Doyi, Silulami J. (Silulami Julius) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The co-existence of electronic devices and their attached transmission cables requires a careful planning regarding the energy leakage across cable shields. This leakage poses potential serious problems ...
