a phenomenon caused by a sudden change in conditions that persist for relatively short time after the change.
A very quick and fast rise in the signal level e.g. from a cymbal crash or similar.
A response, or behavior, of a time series that is heavily dependent on the initial conditions chosen to begin a recursive calculation. The transient response is typically undesirable, and initially masks the true steady-state behavior of the process of interest.
Temporary; transitory; not lasting or enduring.
A signal component of fractional duration as compared to the primary signal.
A temporary change in steady state conditions when one parameter, such as load, is changed.
A temporary change occurring in a circuit due to a sudden change of voltage or load.
An instantaneous rise in the sound level e.g. a cymbal crash or similar. The standard measurement of racks and cases. About 4.4cm
Rapidly changing action occurring in a circuit during the interval between closing of a switch and settling to steady-state conditions. Or any other temporary actions occurring after some change in a circuit or its constants.
A short lived event that does not repeat at regular intervals, often occurring in a system when first turned-on and before reaching operating equilibrium. For example, the initial current surge that occurs when an electrical system is energized.
The sudden energy rise occurring at the start of a waveform such as those generated by a drum hit, string pluck or cymbal strike.
The signal which persists for a brief period following a sudden disturbance to the steady state condition.
one who stays for only a short time; "transient laborers"
(physics) a short-lived oscillation in a system caused by a sudden change of voltage or current or load
enduring a very short time; "the ephemeral joys of childhood"; "a passing fancy"; "youth's transient beauty"; "love is transitory but at is eternal"; "fugacious blossoms"

an abrupt current or voltage spike of extremely short duration
an abrupt current or voltage spike that has an extremely short duration
a non-repetitive very high magnitude short time voltage (E) and current(I)

a sudden change in signal level
a temporary wiggle, an instability in a system on the way to settling down into equilibrium
The behavior of a variable during transition between two steady-states.
A high voltage electrical pulse of very short duration. Also known as impulse, spike or surge.
a degree candidate at another institution who is granted the privilege of temporary registration at ASU for up to 2 terms of consecutive enrollment. Also, ASU students can be transient at another institution; transient permission forms are available from the Student Records Office, Payne Hall and must be signed by the studentâ€™s academic advisor with courses approved by departments.
A very brief high-level signal.
A short term phenomena seen on the way towards, and before reaching, a steady state.
A type of temporary change that occurs within a given parameter. This terms is commonly used in reference to output loading or input voltage parameters.
A sudden sound.
1. A brief event, usually lasting less than a few milliseconds. In many situations transmission line theory, rather than circuit analysis, must be used to describe the propagation of a transient voltage or current. 2. In mathematical analysis the transient is the part of the system's behavior before the steady state is reached. 3. The work "transient" is often used to indicate a "transient overvoltage".
A temporary and brief change in a given parameter. Typically associated with input voltage or output loading parameters .
Remaining only for a short time
Temporary, not permanent.
A very brief excursion from nominal voltage with durations of a microsecond (millionths of a second) to several hundred microseconds.
A rapid change of the waveshape of voltage, current, or field, of very short duration followed by a return to steady state.
A brief, high-amplitude burst of sound.
A short surge of current or voltage, often occurring before steady-state conditions have become established.
1) Applies to that which lasts or stays but a short time. A change from one steady-state condition to another. 2) The initial high-energy peak at the beginning of a waveform, such as one caused by the percussive action of a pick or hammer hitting the string, etc.
An abnormal over voltage of microsecond duration. Also called a surge or spike.
short-lived; not permanent.
Short in duration
A sudden and unwanted increase or decrease of supply voltage or current.
Time-varying. Usually used to describe a very short period pulse of electromagnetic field.
A high amplitude, short duration impulse superimposed on the normal voltage or current.
A high-voltage burst of electric current, usually lasting less than 1 second, occurring randomly.
The fast radical change in a smooth sine wave that occurs in both voltage and current waveforms during the transition from one steady-state operating condition to another.
A voltage or current surge that occurs in an electrical system following a sudden change in the dynamic conditions of the system and is usually short lived. A transient may be caused by the application of an input voltage or current to the system or by the application or removal of a driving force.
Short burst of signal energy.
A short perturbation on a power line, usually lasting for microseconds to tens of milliseconds.
Isolated short-term surge or drop in voltage or current.
A fast rise-time (in the microsecond range), short duration, electrical event typically an over-voltage condition. The time duration is less than one-half a cycle, or 8.33 milliseconds on a 60Hz system.
Abrupt change of state; sudden change in signal amplitude as might be caused by percussion instruments, plucked strings, etc.
Any of the non-sustaining, non-periodic frequency components of a sound, usually of brief duration and higher amplitude than the sustaining components, and occurring near the onset of the sound (attack transients).
A temporary passing condition in a circuit. A sudden or temporary change in circuit conditions. An abrupt current or voltage spike. A surge.
Varying in time, as opposed to steady state.
A very short duration pulse of voltage (or current) that is many times larger in magnitude than the supply voltage. Transients are usually caused by the operation of a heavy load or of any size inductive load like motors, contactors, and solenoids. Voltage transients can cause false actuation of fast electronic circuits such as solid-state counters, one-shot timers, and latching outputs. The problems resulting from transients are dealt with by careful shielding and grounding of remote sensor lead wires, by physical separation of signal wires from power wires in wireways, and by installing transient suppressors directly across offending loads.
A temporary form of electrical energy that occurs on a circuit board because of a sudden change of current or voltage. Also referred to as a spike.
Transient means passing with time. For example, a damped oscillator needs some time after a temporary disturbance to reach the equilibrium again, and after a permanent change in system variables, to reach the new equilibrium.
