Through the decay curves of the coffee fruit-stem oscillation system, it was obtained the damped oscillation period by measuring the time between two consecutive peaks of displacement.
In order to make it more remunerative activity, the convergence or damped oscillation has to break down.
The simulation results can be expressed as the coordinated control of PSS and LOC made faster oscillations are damped oscillation damping and transient stability of power system dynamics quickly recover.
When [X.sub.5] is less than and equal to 138, the metabolite concentrations exhibit damped oscillation, whose numbers of oscillation increase with increasing [v.sub.Metin].
Similar to a damped oscillation with a periodic input in an integer-ordered case, we observe that the curves of A versus [lambda] have a peak value.
Using the values of parameters a and b, the type of economic fluctuation in each cluster was identified as summarized in Table 3 where three fluctuation patterns are observed: monotonic explosion (MO), explosive oscillation (EO), and damped oscillation (DO).
However, these physically real numbers are complex only for the period of damped oscillation processes.
A very useful device that is almost unknown in the United States, but has long been used in Japan is the FDOM (free damped oscillation method, also called pendulum-damping).
initiation to date might be said to exhibit damped oscillation. Beyond the first two years, this damped oscillation can be represented by the function (1)
damped oscillation when the house is excited by the NS component of the "El Centro" earthquake), the quantity of the SMA required to build the dampers and its cost (only raw SMA cost).
Example: A damped oscillation. We consider the real function [f.sub.0] [member of] [L.sup.2]([-[pi], [pi]]),
In either case this fact implies that orbits near the equilibrium have either a "period two" damped oscillation or an aperiodic damped oscillation (except for a most a two-dimensional manifold of orbits embedded in three-dimensional phase space).
