loop gain

Definitions

  • WordNet 3.6
    • n loop gain (telecommunication) the gain of a feedback amplifier or system as a function of how much output is fed back to the input "if the loop gain is too great the system may go into oscillation"

Loop gain in aluminum extrusion processes.
As noted earlier, there are productivity gains if a portion of the seamless market can be converted to double-needle-bar warp knitting when the loop production rate is higher for a warp-knitting approach than for a weft-knitting approach.
On Friday, Cargill announced plans to add a rail loop at its grain elevator in Tuscola, Ill. To gain access to CSX Transportation.

In science:

In “timing” mode the series noise reduces by almost a factor of 2, because of the larger transconductance of N1 which gives a larger loop gain.
CLARO-CMOS, a very low power ASIC for fast photon counting with pixellated photodetectors
Set the EMCCD camera frame rate and electron multiplication gain to match the brightness of the tip-tilt guide source. A frame rate of 300 Hz is preferred (for a control-loop correction bandwidth of ~30 Hz), but can be lowered as necessary for fainter objects at the cost of lower quality tip-tilt correction. 5.
Bringing the Visible Universe into Focus with Robo-AO
For such a randomly placed vortex loop, which relieves strains by allowing spin rotations of order 2π , the system can typically gain disorder energy Edisorder ∼ Lθ ∼ L.
Smectic Liquid Crystals in Random Environments
We now need to estimate the pinning energy gain from introducing a dislocation loop and optimizing its configuration, analogously to the analysis for a vortex loop above.
Smectic Liquid Crystals in Random Environments
Valence bonds gain energy by “resonating” in pairs (Anderson, 1987; Fazekas and Anderson, 1974; Pauling, 1949; Rokhsar and Kivelson, 1988); shown are resonances around the plaquette (i.e. square loop) marked with a star.
