Functionality Extension for A D.C. Motor Speed Control Didactic System with PID Controller

Abstract

The paper describes some functionality extensions for a D.C. motor speed control system with PID controller used as a didactic unit. The extensions are made in two directions: one at a physical-hardware level and the other one at software development of numerical algorithms and graphical interface. Both developments have the aim to extend and to get a more flexible paradigm for the control algorithms study on both continuous and discrete approach and to add the possibility to compare different control solutions.

Testing the Functionality and Performance of a Rail Damper

Abstract

The rail dampers are mechanical devices which work as dynamic absorbers to reduce the rail vibration and rolling noise. The paper shows the experimental results from the functionality and performance testing of an experimental demonstrative rail damper. The vibration attenuation takes the highest values, namely 6-22 dB, between 160 and 1000 Hz.

Spatial structure of a city and the mobility of its residents: functional and planning aspects

Abstract

In the latest conceptions of urban development planning, special attention is paid to the resident. This is reflected especially in the increasingly popular idea of creating ‘a city for people’. This somewhat banal slogan has got an increasingly sensible and justified theoretical support, as well as examples of practical solutions. The idea of planning urban development to meet human needs (a city for people) underlies many conceptions of urban development, especially those the basic goal of which is to limit suburbanisation unfavourable from a general social point of view and to rationalise the mobility of city residents. It has long been known that their mobility reflects the spatial structure of a city, and that their ever more intensive movement is not favourable from the ecological, social and economic points of view. In this situation it is necessary to shape the spatial-functional structure of the city in a way that will, first, restrict this mobility and, secondly, that will change the ways and means by which residents move. However, in order to make changes in the existing spatial structures in a rational way, it is necessary to know the mobility of city dwellers, its causes, directions, distances covered, and duration. What we shall present in this paper are structural and functional conclusions resulting from an analysis of the mobility of residents relevant for planning. Although our reflections will be primarily theoretical in nature, in many cases they will be backed up by empirical studies, mostly concerning Poznań.

Security in Topological, Functional and Semiotic Terms

Abstract

The article is devoted to the modeling of object structures in sequences of event processes characteristic of critical infrastructure (CI) objects arising in emergency situations. The identification of risky sequences of events is a key issue carried out in topological, functional and semiotic terms. The topological approach includes flat, hierarchical and hypergraph - it is possible by means of transformations of equivalent models of the event network through its simplification to the form of a hypothesis or towards the desired functionality. The functionality approach covers theorizing and plural problems in the processes of the creation of a priori and aposteriorical errors of multiplication and synthesis on the basis of also incorrect graphical models of functioning. The semiotic approach captures combinatorically related functional and structural errors, which are impossible to identify and remove by means of arithmetic-logical tests. Currently, this is possible only on the basis of the paradigm of the characterization theory, which guarantees a semantic relationship between the correctness of the functioning and the structure of the analyzed versus the synthesized object of research.
