sine wave

Sinusoidal waveform A waveform of periodic oscillations–eg, in alternating current in which the amplitude of each point in the wave is proportional to the sine of the time from a start point Cardiology An EKG finding described in severe hyperkalemia where the 'P' wave disappears and the QRS complex and 'T' wave merge in an oscillating pattern

sine wave

(sīn wāv)
A symmetric wave representing one complete cycle of a single-frequency oscillation; the displacement of mass over time described by using a function from trigonometry, the sine.

To produce this velocity, we shifted the perceptual characteristics of the graphical elements in the sinusoidal waveform at a raw update rate of 32.
A1 shows the coil arrangements (9, 12, 15, 18, 21, and 24 slots) that gave the best sinusoidal waveforms.
From this time on, because of the transient fault type and inherent property of the created secondary arc, the faulted phase voltage waveform increases to approach a sinusoidal waveform and this means that 1/V1 begins to decrease.
Driving the device too far into saturation results in clipping at both ends of the input sinusoidal waveform which would tend to increase production of the third harmonic frequency signal.
Reference voltage obtained by subtracting the desired sinusoidal waveform from the distorted supply voltage.
is showing simple sinusoidal waveform which was trial verification of proposed device for real time analysis.
PQ events like voltage dips or surges change the Gaussian behavior of the normal 50/60 Hz sinusoidal waveform.
On the one hand, the DPWM control strategy allows the increase of the voltage fundamental due to the reduction of the harmonic amplitude at a double switching frequency and, on the other hand, the waveform of the output voltage approximates the sinusoidal waveform more accurately.
