## Symmetrical Components

Symmetrical components of a poly-phase electrical power system are used to decide permissible imbalance in three phase power. This script shows how we can find these components using GNU Octave.

## Linear Programming using GNU Octave

GNU Octave can solve linear programming problems to optimize outputs. Here is a simple two variable example of how the octave function “glpk” helps to optimize.

## Banana curvature equation

The Goal To study machine learning, I decided to find the equation of banana curvature. The following photograph is processed further to find the equation of the banana curve.

## Polyfit

We take readings while experimenting. Due to unavoidable experimental errors, points don’t follow some exact mathematical rule . To find this rule, we use “Polyfit” function from GNU Octave.

## Concave mirror for solar cooker

I had written a script to design a concave mirror for solar cooker using Scilab. I am posting a similar but faster script using GNU Octave.

## Sunrise-sunset calculator

GNU Octave can be used as a programmable calculator. Here, you can download an Octave script that can calculate sunrise and sunset time for any location on earth.

## Diary

On the octave prompt, we can type commands and check the outputs. If that command is useful, we can include it in the script. These testing sessions can be recorded in the text format using the command “Diary”. Diary can … Continue reading

## Using FFT

FFT (fast fourier transform) is a method to find discrete fourier transform (DFT). To see the behaviour of a time domain signal in the frequency domain, we use FFT.

## Induction motor model

An induction motor is used all over the world to drive mechanical load. I am presenting a mathematical model which plots its performance at various frequencies.

## The name of a script

Normally we give a convenient name to a file. In octave, it is a little tricky.
