In the interfacial polarization mechanism, only charge carriers with high drift velocity got enough time to pile up at the interfaces in each half cycle of alternating electric field.
For ideal piston flows, if the required ACH is infinitely high and the air supply and exhaust locations can be exchanged at the end of each half hour, the CO ppm rise distribution in the first half hour would be the same as that in Figure 1 and it would be reversed in the second half hour, as shown in Figure 1 Half hour half cycle or 1 h a full cycle chosen here corresponds to the half hour and 1 h CO ppm rise criteria in the Australian standard AS 1668.
The leftward motion ends in the top left corner with a final upward half cycle, shown in green.

In this half cycle of operation, Adsorber 1 became discharge side while Adsorber 2 acted as suction side to generate cooling effect in the evaporator.
The controller contains a zero crossing detector to identify the crossing of the positive half cycle to the negative half cycle of the input voltage.
They do not interrupt short-circuit currents in less than a half cycle, and typically require a full cycle to clear a fault condition.
This sort of distributed control arrangement gives the HRC the speed it needs for tasks such as dosed-loop current control, which requires a current measurement and correction every half cycle.
Above the Tg the frictional resistance is small and the relaxation time is much less than the time of a half cycle.
The 435 and 437 models include PowerWave, a fast capture system that displays waveforms and half cycle RMS voltage and current values in full detail to measure interactions during switching operations to prevent motor/drive/load mismatches.
NEW PowerWave measurement function The 435 model includes PowerWave, a "fast capture" system that displays waveforms and half cycle RMS voltage and current values in full detail so motor and generator operators can measure the interaction during switching operations.
