A reproduceable noise generator

This thesis describes the design of a device for generating a reproduceable noise signals. The noise signal is generated by adding three periodic waveforms having non-multiple periods. Pulse techniques are used in the generation of the member functions so that the output may be reproduced exactly.
Theoretical and experimental determinations of the amplitude probability distribution and of the autocorrelation function of the signal were made. On the basis of tests and observations made, it is concluded that the signal generated may be considered a noise signal having a near-Gaussian amplitude probability distribution, very little correlation for time-shifts greater than 30 seconds, and a bandwidth of about 60 cps. / Applied Science, Faculty of / Electrical and Computer Engineering, Department of / Graduate
