Abstract

From the past to present, the Barkhausen criteria has played an important role for the electrical oscillator design. However, the physical meaning of the loop-gain value in the Barkhausen criteria for practical electrical oscillators is still unclear. In this paper, the Barkhausen criteria based on the second order differential equation has been described. The physical meaning of the loop gain value less than 1, equal 1, greater than 1 a little bit, and greater than 1, are interpreted. Furthermore, the interpretation is confirmed by the result of the practical Weinbridge oscillator’s experiment

Abstract

The hybrid metamaterial is proposed for the performance improvement of an asymmetric horn for the secondary radar system. The hybrid metamaterial is the unification techniques of the structures of wire medium and woodpile Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG), which designed at the operating frequencies of 1,060 MHz and 1,300 MHz, respectively. We used the EBG structure for improving the radar main beam with horizontal polarization, while the dielectric rods are organized at the right side of the EBG structure to control the direction of main beam at . Besides that, the wire medium structure has been used to improve the main beam of IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) system with vertical polarization and steer its beam shifted to the direction of   comparing with the main beam of radar. In practice, the hybrid metamaterial will be installed in front of the aperture of asymmetric horn with the suitable distance. All appropriated parameters of the proposed hybrid metamaterial are optimized by using CST software. It is found that such the structure can improve the gain of both main beams more than 3 dB when compared to the gain that obtained from the conventional asymmetric horn. Moreover, we could retain the different directions of both main beam as followed in the specification of the original secondary radar system.

Abstract

Negative permeability (MNG) non-uniform metasurface with a compact size of 80×80 mm2 is proposed for power transfer efficiency (PTE) enhancement of planar magnetically coupled resonance wireless power transfer (PMCR-WPT) system. The PMCR-WPT system with the non-uniform metasurface is investigated by simulation and measurement. The simulated and measured results of PMCR-WPT system with the non-uniform metasurface achieved the maximum PTE of 59.4% and 54.7%, respectively. In addition, the highest PTE improvement obtained 42.2% for simulation and 35.5% for measurement compared with free space case. Moreover, the PTE of PMCR-WPT system with the proposed non-uniform metasurface case was approximately 2.3% greater than the uniform metasurface case over effective distances. The results indicated that the non-uniform metasurface can be applied for future wireless power transfer system.
