Figures 10 and 11 show that the internal ohmic resistance changes greatly at the low SOC.
As (H/d) was increased, the ohmic resistance of cathode surface was increased.
where T is the temperature within the sample, t is the process time, [lambda] is the thermal conductivity, [rho] is the density, Cp is the heat capacity, and [Q.sub.GEN] represents the ohmic power source, as in (2).

As with the lower loadings, the ohmic conductivity (Table 5) was relatively high for these samples and as a consequence it became very difficult to subtract with confidence the contribution to obtain the imaginary permittivity.
When a surrounding metallic object is another conductor, then the induced voltage will cause a current to flow and there is ohmic heating associated with that induced current.
These new thick film chip resistors offer ohmic values ranging from 0.1 [ohm] to 1000 G[ohm].
According to IRTT, the metal plates, which were tested for more than 1,500 hours "with no indication of power degradation caused by corrosion," provide "at least a 12-percent savings in hydrogen consumption in comparison to graphite because of the lower ohmic resistance of these metallic plates than graphite."
These switches for RF applications can be either direct contact, also called ohmic switches, or capacitive, where high frequency signals can be directed along different signal paths using conductors that are separated by an insulating dielectric layer.
(2) However, for RF devices such as the micromachined tunable capacitor, ohmic loss must be minimized and a high quality (Q-value) must be achieved.
