Spring 2010 Homework 9 – CEE 291 Problem 1 A platinum RTD (α=0.00392 0 C -1 ) is to be calibrated. The probe is used in the Wheatstone bridge circuit in the sketch. The bridge resistances have accuracies of ± 0.001 Ω. At 0 0 C, the bridge balances with R 1 = 100 Ω, and at 100 0 C the bridge balances with R 1 = 139.2 Ω. R 2 = R 3 = 100 Ω. a) For the bridge operated in a balanced mode, determine the RTD resistance at 0 0 C and 100 0 C, and the uncertainty in each value. : = = = * = For a balanced bridge RRTDR1 R3R2 RRTD R1R3R2 100Ω 100Ω100Ω 100Ω =∂ ∂ +∂ ∂ +∂ ∂ uRTD R R1uR12 R R2uR22 R R3uR32 = = . = where ud uncertainty in the resistances 0 001Ω uR1 = = uR2 uR3 , = . =± . uRTD 0 0 0013 0 001732Ω , = . + . =± . uRTD 100 0 0011 21 3922 0 00221Ω b) For the bridge operated in a balanced mode, determine the temperature uncertainty for a measured temperature that results in R 1 = 115 Ω.
