Piezoelectric sensing elements. 1 2 Capacitive sensing elements General principle Capacitive sensing elements (cont...) Examples Consier two metal plates with areas A, separate by a istance by some ielectric meium: (A) (B) (C) x x x E 1 E 2 E A (D) (E) l The capacitance is then given by C = ε 0εA. 3 4

2 Capacitive sensing elements (cont...) Examples (cont..) (A) Variable isplacement sensor: C = ε 0εA + x. (B) Variable area isplacement sensor: C = ε 0ε (A wx). Capacitive sensing elements (cont...) Examples (cont..) (D) Capacitive pressure sensor: ΔC C = (1 ν2 )a 2 16Et 3 P. (E) Differential capacitive isplacement sensor: C 1 = εε 0A +x, C 2 = εε 0A x (C) Variable area isplacement sensor: C = ε 0w [ε 2l (ε 2 ε 1 )x]. 5 6 Capacitive sensing elements (cont...) Capacitive sensing elements are incorporate in a.c. eflection brige circuits or oscillator circuits. The sensor is not purely capacitive, but also has a resistance in parallel to represent losses in the ielectric. The quality of the ielectric is often expresse in terms of the loss tangent, tan δ = 1 ωc Inuctive sensing elements Variable inuctance/reluctance sensors First, some comments on magnetic circuits: In an electrical circuit, an electromotive force (e.m.f.) rives the current through the circuit e.m.f. = current resistance In a magnetic circuit, the magnetomotive force (m.m.f.) which rives a flux φ through a magnetic circuit is: m.m.f. = flux reluctance = φ. The reluctance limits the flux through the circuit, just as resistance limits current flow through an electric circuit. 7 8

3 Inuctive sensing elements (cont...) Inuctive sensing elements (cont...) The flux in one turn is given by φ = ni weber The total flux is given by N = nφ = n2 i i n turns The reluctance of a magnetic circuit is given by: = l μμ 0 A, where l is the total length of the flux path, μ is the relative permeability of the circuit material, μ 0 =4π 10 7 H/m is the permeability of free space, The self-inuctance is efine as A is the cross-sectional area of the flux path. L = N i = n Inuctive sensing elements (cont...) The inuctive isplacement sensor Inuctive sensing elements (cont...) The inuctive isplacement sensor (cont... Air gap L core permeability c i n turns raius r air gap armature permeability A 11 12

4 Inuctive sensing elements (cont...) The inuctive isplacement sensor (cont... The total reluctance is TOT = COE + GAP + AMATUE eactive eflection briges Typical capacitive brige 2 3 where COE = GAP = AMATUE = μ 0 μ C r 2 2 μ 0 πr 2 μ 0 μ A rt C 0 E Th V S ~ C h eactive eflection briges Typical inuctive brige E Th Electromagnetic sensing elements These elements are use for measure linear an angular velocity an are base on Faraay s law. This means that if a flux N linke to a conuctor is changing with time, then the back electromotive force inuce in the conuctor is E = N t, i.e. proportional to the rate of change of the flux N. L 1 L 2 V S ~ 15 16

5 Thermoelectric sensing elements Thermoelectric or thermocouple sensing elements are commonly use for measuring temperature. The reason for this is that, if two metals A an B are joine together, there will be a ifference in electrical potential across the junction. The potential epens on the types of metal an the temperature. A Thermoelectric sensing elements (cont...) The junction potential can be escribe by a power series of the form E T = a 1 T + a 2 T 2 + a 3 T For the temperature ifference between two junctions, the potential ifference is then E T 1 E T 2 = a 1 (T 1 T 2 )+a 2 (T 2 1 T 2 2 )+a 3 (T 3 1 T 2 2 )+... E T1 E T2 T 1 T 2 B ET 1 - E T Elastic sensing elements The general principle of elastic sensing elements is to convert a force to an output isplacement, which is then escribe by a change in impeance. Elastic elements are often use to measure: torque = force istance pressure = force / area acceleration = force / mass. The ynamic behavior of these can often be escribe by secon-orer systems. See the text book for etails. Piezoelectric sensing elements If a force is applie to a crystal, the atoms of the crystal are isplace from their normal positions, as x = 1 k F, where k is the stiffness of the crystal. The ynamics can be escribe by a secon-orer system. In a piezoelectric crystal, the isplacement results in a charge q = Kx = K k F

6 Piezoelectric sensing elements (cont...) The piezoelectric effect is reversible, which means that if we apply a charge across a crystal, its imensions will change accoringly. In orer to measure the charge q the faces of the crystals are coate with metal electroes, resulting in a capacitor, with capacitance C N = ε 0εA, t where A is the area, t is the thickness ε the permittivity of the crystal, an ε 0 the permittivity of free space. Piezoelectric sensing elements (cont...) The crystal can therefore be represente as a charge generator q in parallel with a capacitance C N, or as an equivalent Norton circuit with a current source i N in parallel with C N, where i N = q t = K x t. In the Laplace omain this is (in transfer function form) Δī N (s) =Ks. Δ x Piezoelectric sensing elements (cont...) If the crystal is connecte to a resistive loa using a capacitive cable, we have the following system: Piezoelectric sensing elements (cont...) The transfer function of the system, incluing the piezoelectric crystal, a capacitive cable, an a recorer is: G (s) = ΔV L Δi N (s) = L s (C N + C c )+1, i N C N C C L an relating it to the input force we get ΔV L ΔF (s) =ΔV L Δi N Δi N Δx Δx ΔF Piezoelectric crystal Capacitive cable ecorer See the text book for the etails of this erivation. The piezoelectric crystal generates a current, proportional to the velocity of a force acting on its surface

AP2 Magnetism. (c) Explain why the magnetic field does no work on the particle as it moves in its circular path. A charged particle is projected from point P with velocity v at a right angle to a uniform magnetic field directed out of the plane of the page as shown. The particle moves along a circle of radius R.
