Lab report Name: Institution: Date: Abstract Voltage regulation is an important aspect in modern day electronics. Time and again, circuit designers find themselves at loss as to which is more appropriate. In this lab, two kinds of regulators are investigated, LM317 regulator and Zener diode regulator…

The voltage should be clean, steady and have a known value. A linear voltage is regulator is often used to create a known voltage using a transistor which operates in the regulator’s forward active regions and Zener diode which operates in the regions of breakdown. A voltage regulator can therefore be defined as a gadget which creates an output voltage which is steady, clean and of known value under varying conditions including load impedances/load currents; varying temperatures and/or non-regulated/fluctuating DC input voltage. ...

Steel is artificially produced and it exists in different forms of iron. Whereas steel has carbon content which is less than that of pig iron, its carbon content is more than that of wrought iron. Moreover, steel has such qualities as elasticity, hardness, as well as strength, which depends on the heat treatment and composition (Makelainen and Hassinen 488). Consequently, it is categorized as…

In doing so, the weighted sum of P, I and D was used to make the adjustment of the process through the control element such as the power that is supplied to the heating element or the control valve position. This showed that by tuning the 3 input parameters in the Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) controller algorithm, it is quite possible using the controller in providing the control action…

More often than not, when dealing with mechanics of soil, twenty degrees Celsius serves as the best reference temperature and it is commonly referred to as the application temperature. For reference purpose, there are some alterations that are done on the density, as well as mass of water is by 0.2% within the range of 4 and 20 degrees Celsius (Mitchell 6). Arguably, this is equal the precision…

Traxial Lab Report
A triaxial cell was used in the experiment. The soil was encased in the cell. The soil was loaded hydrostatically until the desired pressure was obtained. The axial load was increased up to the soil failure, when the pressure was constant. The resulting deformation, and applied load was measured using a system of acquiring data, and load deformation curves plotted. When the soil reached a high…
