Title: Error Correction: a Proposal for a Standard

Abstract

Some of the errors in transducers such as instrument transformers can be corrected as part of the digital processing for the measurement. The transducer can be characterized on such a way that allows the TEDS of IEEE Std 1451 to transfer the information to the measurement system. A modification would allow the measurement system to perform a high-quality self-calibration whenever a transducer was replaced.

  • Modern nodal methods enable one to perform three-dimensional (3-D) reactor calculations. Due to substantial savings in computing time and efforts, however, two-dimensional (2-D) reactor calculations are frequently carried out for various fuel management scoping computations. The major issue here is how to take into account the effect of the missing dimension on the 2-D computation so that 2-D results are comparable to 3-D results in computational accuracy. One approach is the introduction of 3-D corrections factors into 2-D reactor calculations. The purpose of this paper is to propose an approximate method of determining 3-D correction factors with modern nodal computationsmore » for the pressurized water reactor in mind. Axial flux profiles from model core computations are found to be very similar to those from 3-D calculation for the actual core. This is why 2-D ROCS results with approximate correction factors are satisfactory.« less
  • The Gemini two beam CO/sub 2/ laser fusion system incorporates a complex optical system with nearly 100 surfaces per beam, associated with the generation, transport and focusing of CO/sub 2/ laser beams for irradiating laser fusion targets. Even though the system is nominally diffraction limited, in practice the departure from the ideal situation drops the Strehl ratio to 0.24. This departure is caused mostly by the imperfections in the large (34 cm optical clear aperture diameter) state-of-the-art components like the sodium chloride windows and micromachined mirrors. While the smaller optical components also contribute to this degradation, the various possible misalignmentsmore » and nonlinear effects are considered to contribute very little to it. Analysis indicates that removing the static or quasi-static errors can dramatically improve the Strehl ratio. A deformable mirror which can comfortably achieve the design goal Strehl ratio of greater than or equal to 0.7 is described, along with the various system trade-offs in the design of the mirror and the control system.« less
  • In this paper an iterative method for detecting and correcting errors in sinograms is described and its capability evaluated. The method is based on the use of a reconstruction-reprojection procedure to check the consistency of a sinogram. Adjustments of the sinogram are made iteratively to satisfy gradually the consistency requirement. The effectiveness of the method for detecting and correcting errors due to scanner detector problems is demonstrated with computer simulated data and with real data from positron emission tomography. The potential usefulness of the method for quality control of scanners is discussed.
  • The results are given of the first SEU measurements ever reported on IC devices with on-chip error correction. This method of SEU abatement could revolutionize the design of SEU-immune electronic systems.
  • Minimizing resonant, static n = 1 error field with a phase steerable correction coil the C-coil, in DIII-D allows avoidance of disruptive locked modes. Alternatiely, increasing n = 1 error field in rapidly rotating plasmas can induce magnetic braking of rotation without locking for the study of the role of rotation on stability. Small toroidally asymmetric m = 2, n = 1 static field errors are of concern for the design of next-generation devices and for the operation of existing tokamaks. In low density ohmic plasmas for example, the torque of a small resonant error at the q = 2more » surface can overcome the plasma inertial and/or viscous forces, stop the rotation and produce a large island which can cause disruption.« less
