The VORCOM. Part 1: Analytical considerations
Abstract
The analytical considerations which support the computation of (1) two components of the velocity vector from an Xarray and (2) the transverse vorticity from the Xarray and an adjacent parallel wire pair are presented. The electronic circuit which will execute these computations at a 50 khz rate is also described. The factors limiting the accuracy of the measurements are identified and quantitative estimates are given for a typical xprobe. An extensive analysis of the factors which effect the output and which are unknown (or unknowable) during the measurements is presented. Quantitative estimates of these effects are developed in the form of an uncertainty analysis. Numerical values, calculated using the analytical structure of the response equations, are tabulated; other estimates which require special experiments are described.
