  • Nel, Francois (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The aim of the thesis is the design of an economical do - it - yourself ground station for school pupils to communicate with SUNSAT 1. The ground station should also be more economical than a hand - ...
  • Mthembu, Sifiso Selby (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-03)
    The nanosatellite is build-up of subsystems and payloads (defined as satellite nodes) connected together into the OBC using CAN bus as the main communication protocol. The flight software application is required to run ...
  • Roets, Hendrik Adriaan (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Power utilities are expected to keep the cost of electricity as low as possible. They are also expected to be environmentally friendly and, amongst other things, not to produce unacceptable audible ...
  • Van der Merwe, Jacki (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Worldwide, more large antenna arrays are being deployed in areas of science previously dominated by other antenna geometries. Applications for large arrays include Radar, Satellite Communications and ...
  • Bekker, Johannes Cornelius (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Wind energy is a very current topic, both locally and internationally. It is one of the most rapidly growing renewable energy sources with installed capacity doubling every three years. South Africa's ...
  • Ludick, Daniel Jacobus (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The use of Focal Plane Arrays (FPAs) as suitable feed-structures for the Parabolic Dish Reflector antennas that are intended to form a large part of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) is currently the ...
  • Van der Westhuizen, Christo Carel (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Diabetic- and hypertensive retinopathy are two common causes of blindness that can be prevented by managing the underlying conditions. Patients suffering from these conditions are encouraged to undergo ...
  • Huysamen, Johan Herman (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2006-12)
    The design of an electrically small planar antenna for compact circular polarization is presented. After an in-depth study of the performance limitations on electrically small antennas and an investigation into the working ...
  • Doorduin, Riaan (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2004-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Electricity theft in South Africa has become a major problem. This led to several developments from both industries and research institutes to counter these actions. Since equipment is already installed ...
  • Tait, Jan (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2000-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: An electro-optic sensor system was developed which uses the modulated scatterer technique [1] to measure the fine structure-amplitude and phase-of electric fields with the minimum of perturbation. The ...
  • Burger, Ernst H. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2000-12)
    South Africa has an immensely rich reserve of minerals which still has to be exploited. The problem with these reserves is that they exist in reefs where the mining environment is extremely hazardous, and where mining ...
  • Serdyn, J. J. (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis discusses the development of a 5 kVA single phase AC voltage regulator, specifically designed to assist in the reduction of electrification costs in sparsely populated rural areas. The voltage ...
  • Terblanche, Phillip (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis presents the study, analysis and design of electronically tunable filters, that can be tuned over a wide frequency range (20-500MHz), for use in a direct sampling receiver. The final design ...
  • Fouche, Carien (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
    The properties of an elliptical microwave applicator are investigated. The investigation includes the analytical solution of the cutoff frequencies and electromagnetic field patterns in elliptical waveguides. This requires ...
  • Venter, Francois A (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2003-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis pursues the establishment of a new Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) framework for South Africa. The aim of this framework is to ensure that the user is protected from sub-standard products ...
  • Nicholls, Christo (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-03)
    Conventional immunity tests are both time consuming and costly. There is thus a reasonable interest in relatively quick, but accurate and cost effective, in-house pre-compliance test techniques within an engineering d ...
  • Rottier, P. A. (Pieter Adriaan) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: High-temperature (HTc) SQUID magnetometers are used in the biomedical field of magnetocardiography (MCG). The use of MCG enables a much earlier diagnosis of potentially dangerous conditions than the ...
  • Galbraith, A. S. G. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
    Power system stability simulations are of growing importance for studying the operational integrity of modern power systems, especially in developing economies where generating and transmission capacity lead the demand ...
  • Blum, Konrad (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
