Thus, i will be talking  about pulse integration and fluctuation loss in a radar which is in a  way a part of what my job/career is thus far.

 
While in the Navy, I work on radar systems. Thus, I will be talking  about pulse integration and fluctuation loss in a radar which is in a  way a part of what my job/career is thus far. Typically, you need more  than a single pulse to meet the required performance for a pulsed radar.  Thus, we use pulse integration to improve SNR or (Signal-to-Noise  Ratio) to average out any interferences. The following list is used to  process multiple high-velocity tracks over several resolution cells  during the integration time. Or simply put multiple incoming potentially  hostile targets at a very high speed over a large area.
The result of loss is the difference in the Signal-to-Noise required  over a set area M-of-N Integration and when Signal-to-noise is required  for all CPI (Coherent Processing Interval) within that area.
I never personally use calculation since the computer does most of  this on the fly and even gives us updates on when this is occurring.  That way, as an operator and technician, I can focus on threats, take a  clean picture, and keep the status of my gear up to date with what fixes  are required.

However, in the real world, there will be  some mismatches that will cause some of the signal to be reflected back  in to the transmission line.

 
I work for the Navy, doing testing and repair of Electronic Warfare  (RADAR detection and jamming) systems. A fundamental understanding of  Radio Frequency (RF) Wave Propagation is required to effectively  troubleshoot system operations. Part of this process is conduct Voltage  Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR) testing of RF pathways, such as millimeter  Waveguides and Heliax.
VSWR is the measure of how efficiently RF power is transmitted in to a  load. For example, if a power amplifier is connected to an antenna  through a transmission line, such as a Waveguide, ideally there will be  no reflections and all the signal from the power amplifier will be  transmitted to the antenna. However, in the real world, there will be  some mismatches that will cause some of the signal to be reflected back  in to the transmission line. VSWR is the measure of how much signal is  reflected back in to the system. It is the ratio between transmitted and  reflected waves. A high VSWR indicates poor transmission-line  efficiency and performance, in most cases requiring component or pathway  replacement.
To calculate VSWR, a specialized Signal generator and Spectrum  Analyzer are used, as well as an assortment of loads and couplers. Some  of the basic formulas for VSWR include:
Where (r) is the Reflection Coefficient, (RL) is the Return Loss, and (ML) is the Mismatch Loss (Microwave101, 2022).
To be honest though, I’ve really never looked at nor understood the  formulas required for the calculations. The test equipment I use is  designed to generate the needed signals, measure the reflected energy  for a given frequency range, and then provide a graph with the resulting  calculations. From there, I compare the loss values based on the  specifications for the pathway or antenna under test.

When i got to step six everything  functioned as planned and no more symptoms were found throughout the  whole house.

 
I  choose the COMPTIA approach mainly for its structured steps that really  helps break down problems and find solutions faster and also records  the issue as a record in case further issues arise and if they are the  same or similar it will help with finding the problems occurring. The  steps are very straightforward, and they are:
Step 1: Collecting information—Identifying symptoms and issues
Step 2: Develop a Probable Cause Theory
Step 3: Test the Theory to Find Out What’s Causing It
Step 4: Create an Action Plan
Step 5: Put The Solution Into Action
Step 6: Check For Full System Functionality and Put Preventive Measures In Place
Step 7: Create a Record of The Problem
The reason I choose the CompTIA  troubleshooting approach is because it’s a very good system when it  comes to troubleshooting network issues. For this discussion board I  will explain my problem and how I implemented this step-by-step approach  to find the solution. The problem I am experiencing is that my home  network speeds are very slow in areas other than the room with the  actual router in it and I found this by using step one of the CompTIA  method because I went room to room and tested my network speed on my  laptop and discovered this. After finding this trend throughout my home I  moved to step two which is developing a probable cause theory for this  issue and my theory was that my house is built with stucco which is very  thick concrete material that hinders Wi-Fi signal in other areas of the  house besides the living room with the router. For my action plan I  decided to test this by running an ethernet cable to a repeater near a  room with low network speed and see if the speeds would be higher than  before. After doing this test I found that the speeds were maintained  throughout the house where the repeater was near. The results of the  test helped me develop my action plan of running ethernet cable to  multiple repeaters throughout the house to expand the network signal  range. After putting this plan into my house, it was evident that my  theory was correct regarding the slow network speeds and after  implementing the repeaters all of my devices had way better network  speeds throughout the whole house. When I got to step six everything  functioned as planned and no more symptoms were found throughout the  whole house. The next thing I did was made a word document stating my  network setup and what devices were using the repeaters and what speeds  each device maintained when the repeaters were first installed in case I  run into another issue down the road. The biggest reason I choose this  method is because finding problems and troubleshooting is most effective  and efficient if there is a process/system of doing it that way no time  is waisted, and you don’t get discouraged and you stay on track  throughout the troubleshooting process.

Using a simulation of the manufacturing process Mr. Gürkan found a  method to find the optimal location to place buffers to help machines  run smoother and longer without breaking down. The simulation ran a  maximum of 50 machines and took data on cycle times and downtime to set  up the production process. Then using the data collected and forming a  directional derivative could be used to infer the approximate location  where the process became too loud or uneven. These points were isolated  and selected for the optimal location for the buffers. Once added into  the simulation the productivity of the process was found to increase as  was the time between break down on the production line.
               To further test the simulation additional production  line simulations were produced. These additional simulations were made  with fewer machines used in the process.  These simulations were tested  utilizing the directional derivative and more traditional stochastic  testing methods and the level of error found between the two on the  location of buffers was found to be negligible.

The pid algorithm uses proportional feedback which  tells the servo that it needs to go faster to reach the set speed  increasing current sent to the servo.

 
For my discussion, I choose to talk about how derivatives are used  for servo motor controls. First, we need to discuss what a servo motor  is and what it does. A servo motor is a current and voltage-controlled  electrical motor. This motor works on a closed-loop system through the  commands of a servo controller which uses a feedback device to control  the velocity and position of the servo. A great example of this would be  the cruise control in a car. The servo controller would be the driver  setting cruise control to a set speed which sends a voltage signal and  varying current to the servo which controls the throttle until you get  to a certain speed, then maintains that speed. The feedback device would  be your tachometer telling the servo to lower the current being sent if  you go over the set speed and to raise the current if you go under the  set speed. The servo is using Proportional Integral Derivative or PID  which changes the motor’s output based on the set speed and what the  tachometer reads. The PID algorithm uses Proportional feedback which  tells the servo that it needs to go faster to reach the set speed  increasing current sent to the servo. Derivative feedback tells the  servo that we are over the set speed, and it doesn’t need to run anymore  decreasing current sent to the servo. Integral feedback holds the  current at its set amps and holds the position of the servo to keep the  set speed without any outside interactions that would call for the need  of the other two. Below is an image of how the PID algorithm works.

Application of tangents and normal in real life.

 
There are many types of derivatives used in real life engineering  situations but, the one I am going to talk about is tangents used in  daily life. I specifically want to explain an example of a secant  tangent line used in daily life for engineers. A secant line is a line  that connects to two points on a circle. Astronauts use this to find  things like the distance from the moon while it is orbiting to many  different locations on earth. The formula used for this real life  equation is y-b=[(d-b)/(c-a)](x-a). For example, if you are using this  equation and are given the values (5-3)/(-2-1). Your equation of the  secant line should look like so y-3=-2/3(x-1) then y=(-2/3)x+2/3+3 with  the solution being y=(-2/3)x+11/3.

Create a summary of what you found (in your own words!) and describe an example application.

Let’s go beyond the mechanics. Differential calculus is a tool, invented to solve the most challenging problems in science and engineering.  For  instance, Newton used differential calculus to express the equations of  planetary motion around the Sun, as well as the rate at which a warm  object cools off in a colder environment. This week, you’ll become familiar with more of those applications by presenting them to your classmates.
