A Portable Passive-Element Network Analyzer for Engineering Systems Simulation 630378
The design, construction, and typical application of a portable, passive element network analyzer is described. This device was designed for use in the simulation, analysis and design of complex aerospace systems. When programmed, this analyzer becomes an electrical model of a physical system rather than a computer for the solution of mathematical models which represent a physical system. The advantages of this design are its small size, economy, and availability of all programming elements on a single compact unit. An example problem is also described to illustrate the typical application of the network analyzer in the solution of engineering problems.
