THEORY:

Thermistors: Thermistor means Thermal Resistor.Thermistor is a semiconductor device which behaves as thermal resistor having negative temperature coefficient (NTC) in which their resistance decreases as temperature increases. The NTC is as large as several percent per degree Celsius. This allows the thermistor circuits to detect very small changes in temperature which could not be observed with RTD or Thermocouple. In some cases the resistance of thermistor at room temperature may decrease as much as 5% for each one degree Celsius rise in Temperature. This high sensitivity to temperature changes makes thermistors extremely useful for precision temperature measurements control and compensation Thermocouples: When two metals having different work functions are placed together, a voltage is generated at the junction which is nearly proportional to the temperature. This junction is called a thermocouple.

This principle is used to convert the heat energy to electrical energy at the junction of two conductors. The heat at the junction is produced by the electrical current flowing in the heater element while the thermocouple produces an EMF at its output terminals which can be measured with the help of a PMMC instrument. The EMF produced is proportional to the temperature and hence to the RMS value of the current. Thermocouple types of instrument can be used for both ac and dc. Resistance temperature detector: Electrical resistance of any metallic conductor varies according to temperature changes. The sensor for measurement of temperature by utilizing this phenomenon is called resistance thermometer. It is the basic element for resistance temperature detector.

The bridges are used not only for the measurement of resistance but also used for measurement of various component values like capacitor and inductor etc. Bridge circuit in its simplest form consists of a network of four resistance arms forming a closed circuit. A source of current detector is connected to the two junctions. The bridge circuit uses the comparison measurement methods and operates on nullindication principle. The bridge circuit compares the value of an unknown component with that of an accurately known standard component. Thus the accuracy depends on the bridge component without the null detector. Hence high degree of accuracy can be obtained. In a bridge circuit when no current flows through the null detector which is generally a galvanometer, then the bridge is said to be balanced.

R1 becomes excessively large and it is impractical to obtain a satisfactory variable standard resistance in the range of values required) PROCEDURE: 1. This bridge is particularly suited for inductances measurements. with + 2% error. since comparison with a capacitor is more ideal than with another inductance. Q = ωLx/Rx = (ωC1R2R3 * R1)/R2R3 = ωC1R1 Maxwell’s bridge is limited to the measurement of low Q values (1-10). The Maxwell’s bridge using a fixed capacitor has the disadvantage that there is an interaction between the resistance and reactance balances.
