  • Becker, Martin Gerhard (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2004-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis covers the development of a transformerless series dip compensator. Of all known power quality problems, voltage dips are the greatest reason for concern. Series injection dip compensators offer ...
  • Claassens, Andries Johannes (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The behaviour of induction motors at a petrochemical plant under transient conditions was investigated with the view to improve plant immunity to voltage fluctuations. The benefits of using a ...
  • Mostert, Sias (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 1990)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The transputer virtual memory system provide, for the transputer without memory management primitives, a viable virtual memory system. This report evaluates the architecture and its parameters. The ...
  • Cilliers, Francois Dirk (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
    The Gaussian mixture model (GMM) performs very effectively in applications such as speech and speaker recognition. However, evaluation speed is greatly reduced when the GMM has a large number of mixture components. ...
  • Beukman, Theunis Steyn (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A new type of wideband lters, with tunability in both the centre frequency and bandwidth, is presented in this thesis. These lters are based on perturbed ring-resonators in cascade, while varactor ...
  • Browne, Michael John (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2000-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A unified method is proposed to treat saturation in both Multi-Input-Multi-Output MIMO and Single-Input-Single-Output controllers. This method offers superior performance over existing MIM 0 anti-saturation ...
