  • Bezuidenhout, Quintus (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A low earth orbit satellite system can be useful in numerous communication applications where physical connections are not possible. Communication time available from any point on earth to the satellite ...
  • Smith, David (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
    The aim of this thesis is to find an a ordable and upgradeable manner of increasing the data rate of current satellite systems. The compression, modulation and amplification techniques and telecommunication regulations ...
  • Berner, Heiko (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: After successful use of a DSP processor onboard the SUNSAT satellite, the need arose for a faster floating-point processor. A list of possible processors was generated from various selection criteria. ...
  • Gous, Marthinus Gerhardus Faculin (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2003-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis presents the design and implementation of shunt active power filtering algorithms for unbalanced, non-linear loads. A three-phase four-wire topology is developed in the dqO space. Based on ...
  • Welgemoed, Frans Marx (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The use of power electronic converters provides a more efficient, accurate and dynamic solution to reactive compensation. In this thesis the application of power electronic converters to shunt reactive ...
  • Van Rooyen, M. W. (Melchior Werner) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Balanced loads such as antennas normally require baluns when they are measured. For wide band applications, designing and building a balun complicates the measurement and introduces errors. A simple ...
  • Rasmeni, Sibusiso Wiseman (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2003-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Two distinct simulation methods have been developed to simulate the single and the multi-phase excited current waveforms of the switched reluctance machine (SRM) under single pulse mode operation. These ...
  • Van der Merwe, Andre (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2003-12)
    INTRODUCTION: The Medical Radiation department at iThemba LABS provides proton beam therapy facilities for irradiation of intracranial, head and neck lesions. Proton radiation treatment offers a number of advantages over ...
  • Lodder, Shaun (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) monitors brain activity by using signals such as EEG, EcOG, and MEG, and attempts to bridge the gap between thoughts and actions by providing control to physical devices ...
