Single Phase Electrodynamometer Power Factor Meter

Construction The construction of a single phase Electrodynamometer Power Factor Meter is shown in fig. 1. It consists of a fixed coil which acts as the current coil. This coil is split up into two parts and carries the current of the circuit under test. Therefore, the magnetic field produced by this coil is proportional to the main current. Two identical pressure coils A … Read moreSingle Phase Electrodynamometer Power Factor Meter

PMMC & Dynamometer Instruments Construction Difference

Difference between the construction of PMMC and dynamometer instruments PMMC (Permanent moving magnet coil) Instrument (1) Moving Coil: The moving coil is wound with many turns of enamelled or silk-covered copper wire. The coil is mounted on a rectangular aluminium former which is pivoted on jewelled bearings. The coils move freely in the field of … Read morePMMC & Dynamometer Instruments Construction Difference

Phototransistor | Symbol, Operation and Applications

The phototransistor is a semiconductor light sensor formed from a basic transistor with a transparent cover that provides much better sensitivity than a photodiode. It is basically a 3-layer semiconductor device which has a light-sensitive base region. The base senses the light and converts it into the current which flows between the collector and the … Read morePhototransistor | Symbol, Operation and Applications

Measurement Systems | Functions & Applications

The measurement of a given quantity is essentially an act or result of comparison between a quantity, whose magnitude (amount) is unknown with a similar quantity whose magnitude (amount) is known, the latter being called standard. Measurement involves the use of the instrument as a physical means of determining quantities or variables. The instruments serve … Read moreMeasurement Systems | Functions & Applications

Functional Elements of an Instrumentation System

An Instrument may be defined as a device or a system which is designed to maintain a functional relationship between prescribed properties of physical variables and must include ways and means of communication to a human observer. Functional Elements of an Instrumentation System Most of the measurement system contains following main functional elements as shown … Read moreFunctional Elements of an Instrumentation System

Static Sensitivity, Linearity and Hysteresis

Static Sensitivity Static Sensitivity of an instrument or an instrumentation system is defined as the ratio of the magnitude of the output signal or response to the magnitude of an input signal or the quantity being measured. The reciprocal of sensitivity is defined as inverse sensitivity or deflection factor. The sensitivity of an instrument should … Read moreStatic Sensitivity, Linearity and Hysteresis

Accuracy and Precision

In this article, we will see the difference between accuracy and precision terms. They are also most confusing terms in measurements regarding instruments. What is Accuracy? Accuracy is the closeness with which the instrument reading reaches the true value of the quantity being measured. 1. The accuracy of measurement means conformity to truth. 2. The … Read moreAccuracy and Precision
