Unformatted text preview: 061 061 Error Error is the difference between an ideal (or correct) value and an actual value. • Several different types of error can be measured. • An error type can be expressed in several ways. 061 EE 4770 Lecture Transparency. Formatted 8:29, 25 January 1999 from lsli06. 061 062 062 Expression of Error Notation I denotes an ideal value . A denotes an actual value. Absolute error defined I  A . Percent error defined 100 I  A I for I 6 = 0. Consider a transducer designed to measure process variables in the range I ∈ [ x min , x max ]. Percentfullscale error defined 100 I  A x max for x max 6 = 0. 062 EE 4770 Lecture Transparency. Formatted 8:29, 25 January 1999 from lsli06. 062 063 063 Types of Error • Model Error. Error in transducer model, H t . • Repeatability Error. Transducer change from occasion to occasion. • Stability Error. Transducer change during use. • Calibration Error. Difference between two transducers of same kind. 063 EE 4770 Lecture Transparency. Formatted 8:29, 25 January 1999 from lsli06. 063 064 064 Model Error Let y = H t ( x ) denote a transducer output, response, and process variable. The accuracy of H t ( x ) depends upon how well the transducer is understood and how complex a transfer function can be tolerated. For example, the following are all for the same transducer: Okay: H t1 ( x ) = R o (1 + ax ). Good: H t2 ( x ) = R o (1 + ax + bx 2 ). Better: H t3 ( x ) = R o (1 + ax + bx 2 + cx 3 )....
