  • Van Wyk, Carel (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2011-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The computational power of mobile smart-phone devices are ever increasing and high-end phones become more popular amongst consumers every day. The technical speci cations of a high-end smart-phone today ...
  • Young, Andre (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2007-12)
    The finite element method is a very efficient numerical tool to solve geometrically complex problems in electromagnetics. Traditionally the method is applied to bounded domain problems, but it can also be forged to solve ...
  • Bekker, Bernard (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2004-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis investigates methods to extract the maximum amount of electrical energy from a py panel. The thesis is divided into four parts, focussing on different aspects relating to this topic. The ...
  • Badenhorst, J. (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-03)
    This study investigates high frequency probes through good metrology and computation software such as CST. A factor that can strongly influence the accuracy of measurements, is common mode (CM) current. Therefore, the ...
  • Van der Merwe, Benjamin (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis describes various software technologies implemented, or specifically developed, for the SUNSAT micro-satellite mission. With the discussion centered on the Mission Operations System functions ...
  • Geldenhuys, N. D. (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The topic of microwave frequency discriminators is introduced. Various applications and implementation techniques of these devices are given and discussed. This thesis may serve as reference foundation ...
  • Louw, Willem J. (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2005-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Both coaxial probe and waveguide (WG) measurement systems for electric and magnetic material property extraction were investigated. These measurement techniques were used to determine electrical properties ...
  • 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, ...
  • Kotze, Daniel Johannes Van Wyk (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2011-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: An investigation is made to find a suitable routing protocol for a millimeter wave ad hoc wireless network. It is discovered that a hierarchical routing protocol is ideal for a high node density. Due to ...
  • Schoeman, Marlize (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2003-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A complete mixed-potential integral equation formulation for the analysis of arbitrarily shaped scatterers in a planarly layered medium is presented. The integral equation is able to solve for simultaneous ...
  • Du Toit, Rene (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2000-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This product is designed as an educational tooL It was developed to make a classroom more organised. Better and easier communication between the teacher and the students can be established, as well as ...
  • Chewele, Youngie Klyv (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The development of fast and efficient processors, programmable devices and high power semiconductors has led to the increased use of semiconductors directly in the power supply path in order to achieve ...
  • Mouton, Zac (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Slip-synchronous permanent magnet generators (SS-PMG) is a recently proposed direct-grid connected direct-drive generator topology for wind power applications. It combines a permanent magnet synchronous ...
  • Rossouw, Jacques Stefan (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2004-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Improvements in the area of satellite orientation control in the presence of large actuator gain changes are investigated. Gain changes primarily originate from actuator failures, but may also result ...
  • Du Plessis, J. Prieur (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A Representative Unit Cell (RUC) model for flow through two-dimensional porous media is presented and applied to two industrial related problems. The first application is to that of cross-flow in tube ...
  • Van der Merwe, S (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
    This research project investigates the design, modelling and application of an open-air capacitive voltage sensor assembly for the measurement of wideband High Voltage signals on three-phase transmission lines. The ...
  • Shifidi, S. K. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: From a systems operation and design perspective, it is important to understand the behaviour of HVDC system insulation when presented with high voltage transients, such as induced by lightning and ...
  • Busch, Regardt (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-03)
    In this thesis the mathematical modelling and simulation of an autonomous underwater vehicle is presented. A generic six degree of freedom model suitable for AUV control applications is presented. This model is then ...
  • Gouws, Marcel (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-03)
