In this study, transmission characteristics of split-ring resonator (SRR) and double-sided SRR (DSRR) are investigated using Ansoft's HFSS software, for varying values of substrate parameters, which are thickness, the real part of relative permittivity and the dielectric loss tangent of the substrate. Simulation results have shown that resonance patterns of both SRR and DSRR are affected similarly from permittivity and loss tangent variations. However, changes in the substrate thickness affect their resonance characteristics quite differently. Resonance frequency, resonance strength, and bandwidth of the resonance curve noticeably decrease for the DSRR structure in response to decreasing substrate thickness while the resonance frequency of, the SRR increases at a comparatively slower rate without any noticeable change in the bandwidth and the resonance strength. Besides, the simulation results show that doubling the SRR (i.e., using DSRR), while keeping the unit cell dimensions fixed, provides an electrically smaller structure, and thus better effective medium approach.

Predictive accuracy and computationally efficiency of method of lines (MOL) solution of the discrete ordinate method (DOM) coupled with different radiative property estimation techniques (GG, SLW, SNBCK) are assessed by applying them to the prediction of incident radiative fluxes along the freeboard walls of a 0.3 MWt atmospheric bubbling fluidized bed combustor (ABFBC) and comparing their predictions with measurements generated previously from two runs one without and the other with recycle. Freeboard is t...
RECONSTRUCTION OF PERMITTIVITY AND CONDUCTIVITY PROFILES OF A DIELECTRIC SLAB IN THE TIME DOMAIN BY DESCENT METHODS
ONDER, M; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 1992-10-01)
An optimisation approach is presented for the problem of reconstructing the permittivity and conductivity profiles of a dielectric slab from the reflected and transmitted field data. The problem is treated as an optimal control problem where the norm of the difference of measured and calculated boundary data is minimised subject to the state equation governing the system. The original constrained optimisation problem is reduced to the evaluation of stationary points of an augmented functional which is obtai...
Design, Implementation and Operation of a New C-type 2nd Harmonic Filter for Electric Arc and Ladle Furnaces
Gercek, Cem Ozgur; Ermiş, Muammer; Ertas, Arif; Kose, Kemal Nadir; Unsar, Ozgur (2010-10-07)
In this research work, the transient overvoltage suppression capability and harmonic filtering performance of C-type 2nd harmonic filters are optimized by using two-stage damping resistors; one is permanently connected to the filter circuit, while the other one is switched on by back-to-back connected thyristors during furnace transformer and Harmonic Filter (HF) energization periods. However in conventional C-type 2nd HFs there is only one damping resistor, which is permanently connected to the filter circ...

Söken, Halil Ersin (FapUNIFESP (SciELO), 2014-01-01)
In this study, an Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) algorithm is designed for estimating the attitude of a picosatellite and the in-orbit external disturbance torques. The estimation vector is formed by the satellite's attitude, angular rates, and the unknown constant components of the external disturbance torques acting on the satellite. The gravity gradient torque, residual magnetic moment, sun radiation pressure and aerodynamic drag are all included in the estimated external disturbance torque vector. The sa...
Effects of Substrate Parameters on the Resonance Frequency of Double-sided SRR Structures under Two Different Excitations
Ekmekci, E.; Averitt, R. D.; Sayan, Gönül (2010-07-08)
In this study, we numerically investigate the effects of substrate parameters (i.e., the thickness and the permittivity) on the resonance frequency of the double-sided SRR (DSRR) structure under two different excitation conditions. This includes either electric or magnetic excitations which are two common techniques to obtain a resonant effective permittivity or permeability, respectively. The numerical calculations are performed using CST Microwave Studio. The numerical results reveal a similar trend in th...
