MAE 591 RANDOM DATA Data Acquisition and Processing 1 1. Data acquisition: Type of data z z z z z z 1. Continuous (analog) data 2. Originally digital data: stock market, labour statistics, annual rainfall - all physical quantities Problems associated with continuous data 1. Measurement: transducer converts physical quantity into an electrical voltage 2. Transmission/Recording 3. A/D conversion format Problems associated with transducers and signal conditioning: thermocouple, pressure sensor, accelerometer, laser/optical displacement sensor displacement sensor, proximity probe, strain gauge, microphone, hydrophone 1. Linearity: L max 2. Hysteresis 3. Attenuation in gain and phase over frequency range: normally 20% of the fundamental natural frequency of transducer 4. Signal conditioner source impedance: normally lower than 100 Data Transmission 1. Land lines (wiring) – through electrical lines 2. Radio frequency (RF) telemetry – for moving objects such as spacecraft, vehicles, rotors, animals Need for calibration and compensation Ideal calibration: y ) ( ) ( t cx t = y ( t ): output, x ( t ): input, c : constant Dynamic range: assessed in terms of 1. = 2 2 10 log 10 / n s N S ψ : maximum mean square of signal 2 s : mean square of noise floor 2 n 2. = 2 2 max 10 log 10 / n L N PS : peak S/N ratio ) deviations standard (three data random data sinusoidal data static for for for 3 2 max = s s s L 1 J.
