PENDULUM PULSE-REBALANCE ACCELEROMETER UNIT PARAMETER ESTIMATION USING A SINGLE AXIS TURNTABLE
Abstract. The results of development of a pendulum pulse-rebalance accelerometer unit (AU) calibration procedure are presented. For AU used on mobile objects with a smaller acceleration range, development of a procedure for calibration in the AU operating range of angles is relevant. For calibration the AU is mounted on a single-axis turn-table which provides the possibility for the AU to be fixed in two opposite positions at an angle of 45º relative to the axis of rotation. The experimental results presented provide support for the efficiency of the proposed calibration technique.
Keywords: pendulum pulse-rebalance accelerometer, calibration, single-axis turn-table.
