Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering

 

Electrical and Electronic Engineering is an exciting and dynamic field. Electrical engineers are responsible for the generation, transfer and conversion of electrical power, while electronic engineers are concerned with the transfer of information using radio waves, the design of electronic circuits, the design of computer systems and the development of control systems such as aircraft autopilots. These sought-after engineers can look forward to a rewarding and respected career.

  • Zeeman, Adriaan Siebrits   Booysen, Marthinus J. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2014-07)
    The informal transport industry in Sub-Saharan Africa is notoriously dangerous, leading to many fatalities annually. This paper presents an innovative way of monitoring driver behaviour, in real-time, by taking into account ...
  • Booysen, Marthinus J.   Ebot, N. A.   Akpa, E. N. O. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2014-07)
    Minibus taxis are considered to be notoriously dangerous and are seen as the epitome of bad driving in South Africa in particular, and Sub-Saharan Africa in general. Minibus taxis are used for long-distance and urban travel. ...
  • Zeeman, Adriaan Siebrits   Booysen, Marthinus J. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2014-07)
    The informal public transportation sector in Sub-Saharan Africa contributes significantly to public transport, and yet little is known about passenger mobility patterns. We propose a low cost system to measure occupancy ...

    The recent advances in sensing and communication technologies pave the way for interfacing cars with smartphones to offer value-added services to users on the road. Kinematics, automotive diagnostics, passengers load, ...
  • Niesler, Thomas (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-11)
    Thomas Niesler’s academic career began at the University of Stellenbosch where he obtained the BEng and MEng degrees in Electronic Engineering in 1991 and 1993 respectively. He moved to St John’s College, Cambridge, in ...
  • Mouton, Toit (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-03)
    Hendrik du Toit Mouton was born in Somerset-West in 1965. In 1976 his family moved from Stellenbosch to Bloemfontein where he matriculated in 1983. He started his B.Sc. at the University of the Orange Free State in 1984 ...
  • Groenewald, Christoffel Johannes (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: An Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS) demonstrator and testing platform was required for satellite engineering students. The ADCS demonstrator and testing platform will allow students to ...
  • Alzogaiby, Adel (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This work entails the development and performance analysis of a human gait detection system based on radar micro-Doppler signals. The system consists of a tracking functionality and a target classifier. ...
  • Stofberg, Anneke (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Large close range environmental reflections or poor isolation between the transmit and receive paths of an FMCW radar can overload the receiver. The In phase and Quadrature phase (IQ) Reflected Power ...
  • Thompson, Nicholas Christopher (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Technical advances in electromagnetics, signal processing and processing power have led to a significant increase in sensitivity and accuracy in radio telescopes. With this increase in sensitivity, radio ...
  • Matladi, Thabang-Kingsley (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Superconducting QUantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) are fairly recent types of magnetometers that use flux quantization combined with Josephson tunnelling to detect very faint (< 10¯15 T) magnetic ...
  • Nye, Jonathan Mark (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This work investigated the influence of photo-voltaic generators on the voltage control of distribution feeders and the methods that can be used to increase the maximum penetration levels of these feeders. ...
  • Van Wyk, Hendrik Petrus Daniel (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In this thesis the design and testing of the baseband components of a modem intended for use as a telemetry and control link for a low earth orbit satellite is presented. This includes parts of the ...
  • Villet, Wikus Theo (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The position sensorless controllability of the reluctance synchronous machine (RSM) is investigated in this thesis with the focus on industry applications where variable and dynamic torque is required ...
  • Thesnaar, Emile Jacobus (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Within a complex electronic system, sub-system communication forms the backbone of the functionality of any satellite. It allows multiple processors to run simultaneously and data to be shared amongst ...
  • Botha, Antheun (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The extension of the Karoo Array Telescope (KAT), MeerKAT, will be the most sensitive radio telescope in the southern hemisphere until it is superseded by the completion of the Square Kilometre Array ...
