Angular Frequency


the number of complete oscillations made in 2π units of time during a periodic oscillatory process. The relation between the angular frequency ω and the oscillation period Tor the oscillation frequency/is given by the equation ω = 2πf = 2π/T.

To further investigate the complex viscosity [absolute value of [[eta].sup.*]] as function of angular frequency ([omega]), we fitted the experimental complex viscosity data to the Carreau-Yasuda model, as described by the following equation [28]:
For completeness, the numerical angular frequency [[omega].sub.num] derived in this study is plotted against the wavenumber [kappa] in Figs.
The simulation results shown in Fig.4 and Fig.5 verify the ability of the proposed PLL to accurately lock to the supply angular frequency and phase in one ac supply period under line disturbances, such as sag, harmonic, unbalance, whereas the conventional PLL fails to lock accurately in the highly distorted and unbalanced grid.
The guided wave is assumed to be travelling in a waveguide along OZ direction with wavenumber vector [k.sub.z] (direction of which coincides with OZ axis) at angular frequency [omega].
For this purpose, we prepared compatibilized PLA/PCL (90/10) blends irradiated at various doses (5-200 kGy) in the presence of GMA and then measured their complex viscosities in the angular frequency range 0.5-100 rad/s.
The frequency sweep tests were performed at 25[degrees]C over the angular frequency range of 0.1-10 rad/s.
The complex viscosity is shown as a function of angular frequency in figure 5.
We write the equations of the BLDCM in the coordinate system d-q, tied to the rotational angular frequency of the rotor.
where [x.sub.h](t) and [x.sub.r](t) denote the body movements of the heartbeat and the respiration signal in the human body, which can be expressed by sinusoids with amplitude a\t and a, and angular frequency [[omega].sub.h] and [[omega].sub.r], respectively.
In asymptotically flat coordinates the angular frequency detected by a distant observer is simply the coordinate angular velocity; that is, one evaluates
