LVDT Andrew Emry Submitted To: Guruprasad Arakere November 11, 2007 Introduction: A linear variable differential transformer measures displacement through a shaft moving through along the unit as well as the voltage of the transformer. The displacement values are proportional to the voltage readings for the transformer. Procedure: Set the power supply and voltmeter into position. Set the vernier scale to zero at a point along the linear variable differential transformer. Adjust the displacement from zero to two tenths of an inch using increments of one hundredths of an inch. For each displacement value, record the voltage reading. Results: A table of the exercise data can be found below. The second table includes the values calculated using the experimental data. An explanation of each calculation can be found below the table.
