Dynamic Pressure Calibration of Pressure Sensors Using Liquid Step Pressure Generator
. This study presents the dynamic calibration of pressure sensors using a developed liquid step wave generator. This approach is sufficient to display the transient response of pressure sensors in the time and frequency domains and it depends on the performance of pressure generators. In this study, the liquid step wave generator was developed via a reformed spool valve generating a liquid step wave with a short rise time that current generators have not achieved so far. A small sensing cavity, where maintains the liquid step wave, and a contact seal were adopted herein to limit the pressure transient of the fluid in the generator, such that the rise time and the bandwidth of the liquid step wave can reach 30.0 µs and 10.4 kHz. The experimental results not only display the performance of the liquid step wave generator, but also reveal the dynamic characteristics of three different test pressure sensors using the developed liquid step wave generator.
