Abstract:

Generally, any linear or nonlinear analog computer consists of three principal units power-supply unit, solver, cathode-ray tube display. Modular units of this kind are being manufactured by the Soviet industry. Thus, the UESV-1 type power-supply unit is designed to power unified operational amplifiers UU-1 and UU-3 which serve to construct various solving units adders, scalers, integrators, inverters, multipliers and others. The cathode-ray tube displays most often used in analog computers are those of the 1-4 and 1-5 types both designed for visual observation of the process on the cathode-ray tube screen. The three principal units can be used along with various accessories to construct special purpose linear and nonlinear analog computers containing from 20 to 500 operational dc amplifiers and designed for the solution of problems described by ordinary linear and nonlinear differential equations, partial differential equations and algebraic equations and their cost is relatively low compared with the cost of serially manufactured analog computers.
