Abstract
THE PROJECT WILL INVOLVE ADPTATION OF THE LOOP CURRENT STEP RESPONSE METHOD INVENTED AND DEVELOPED BY THE PROJECT PARTICIPANTS FOR DETERMINING INSTALLED THERMOCOUPLE RESPONSE FOR TYPE J, K AND E THERMOCOUPLES USED IN TURBINE ENGINE TEST FACILITIES. THE METHOD INVOLVES PROCESSING DATA FROM A COOLING TRANSIENT FOLLOWING CESSATION OF JOULE AND/OR PELTIER HEATING OF THE THERMOCOUPLE. THE PROJECT WILL FOCUS ON ESTABLISHING TEST ACCURACIES FOR ALL THREE THERMOCOUPLE TYPES, DETERMINING OPTIMUM TEST METHODS, AND DEVELOPING EASY TO USE, SAFE AND RELIABLE EQUIPMENT. THE PROGRAM WILL PROVIDE THE TECHNOLOGY NOW NEEDED FOR TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT IN TURBINE ENGINES AND ITS TEST FACILITIES, AND WILL ALSO PROVIDE A PRODUCT WHICH WILL FIND A NEED FOR RESPONSE TIME TESTING IN SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY.
