Collaborative engineering and design management for the Hobby Eberly Telescope tracker upgrade
The engineering and design of systems as complex as the Hobby-Eberly Telescope's* new tracker require that multiple tasks be executed in parallel and overlapping efforts. When the design of individual subsystems is distributed ...
HETDEX tracker control system design and implementation
To enable the Hobby-Eberly Telescope Dark Energy Experiment, The University of Texas at Austin Center for Electromechanics and McDonald Observatory developed a precision tracker and control system – an 18,000 kg robot to ...
An alternative architecture and control strategy for hexapod positioning systems to simplify structural design and improve accuracy
Hexapod systems (6 legged Stewart Platforms), offer advantages in accuracy over other positioning systems and are finding applications in numerous telescopes. However, instruments with increased sophistication for modern ...
Status of the design of the ITER ECE Diagnostic
(EDP Sciences, 2015-03)
The baseline design for the ITER electron cyclotron emission (ECE) diagnostic has entered the detailed preliminary design phase. Two plasma views are planned, a radial view and an oblique view that is sensitive to distortions ...
Dynamic Simulations of a Large High-Frequency Power System
(Society for Modeling & Simulation International, 2011)
Dynamic simulations to assess performance aspects of a large high-frequency power system have been conducted. The analysis uses a model of an 80-MW power system for an all-electric ship. The model, developed in the ...
