A8.2 - Parameter Free Model for Diagnosis and Behavior Simulation of Energy Storage Units

P. Büschel, T. Günther & O. Kanoun
For the characterization, simulation and diagnosis of batteries, different methods can be used. One approach is the separation of static and dynamic behavior, to analyze it separately and to combine them into one model. The dynamic behavior is often characterized by pulse tests and spectroscopic methods. The static behavior is determined by measuring the open circuit potential at different state of charge and temperature. To be useful in an application the measured behavior must be...

A8.1 - Water quality assessment by combining impedance spectroscopy measurement with cyclic voltammetry

R. Gruden & O. Kanoun
Optimum detergent dosage during a washing process depends on water quality, degree of pollution and quantity of laundry. Particularly, water quality is an important factor. Other parameters like carbonate- or non-carbonate hardness and calcium-magnesium ratio in addition to total hardness of water have an impact on the amount of detergent. This work discusses the possibilities to realize a detergent sensor which measures important parameters for the washing process and assess the ideal necessary amount of...

B6.1 - Function-Oriented Dimensional Metrology – More than Determining Size and Shape

W. Hartmann & A. Weckenmann
Today’s dimensional metrology has undergone some generational changes. Looking back in history, manufacturing functional products without metrology was just a trial and error procedure, so only a small number of simple products were produced. First, with the implementation of simple gage blocks the construction of complex buildings such as the pyramids were possible. Later, during the industrial revolution requirements for mass production increased, so simple 2-point measurements were no longer sufficient to ensure mating ability...

A7.4 - A high sensitivity analog and digital position sensor for the detection of ferromagnetic target in automotive applications

D. Frachon
This paper introduces a new sensor technology of analog or digital position sensor for the detection of a ferromagnetic target in rotary or linear motion. This sensor is based on the use of a permanent magnet exhibiting a specific shape; this magnet is associated to a conical ferromagnetic part. The presented sensor has an improved sensitivity due to the use of this conical ferromagnetic part (acting as a flux concentrator) associated to a permanent magnet.

B5.4 - Signal Processing for Single Transducer Distance Measurement Applications to Reduce the Blind Zone

A. Schröder & B. Henning
Piezoelectric air ultrasound transducers typically have a small bandwidth. So they cannot be used to transmit short signals. This leads to a blind zone which prevents measuring short distances in single transducer applications, because normally receiving is not possible until transmitting is finished. The blind zone is significantly increased if coded signals are used which is necessary to identify different sensors in a multi sensor environment to reduce crosstalk. One solution is to implement a...

A7.3 - Measurement System for the Characterization of Magnetic Actuators on the base of Magnetic Stray Fields

J. Franke, M. Brela & U. Pellkofer
Common defects in electromagnetic actuators due to the manufacturing process are heterogeneous magnetic properties of the materials, cracks and defects in the magnetic materials and parasitic air gaps in and directly around the magnetic circuit. Considering the high cost pressure, test systems must be adapted to the increasing complexity of the components and be able to detect defects completly in-situ. For these requirements the novel and non-destructive measurement system is suitable to monitor and assure...

B5.1 - Radar Based Detection and Tracking of Objects under Poor Visibility Conditions

A. Ens, Ch. Zech, A. Hülsmann, L. Georgi & K.-F. Becker
Places which have to be monitored permanently (such as security sectors, industrial areas or power plants) are facing the problem of large-area monitoring. Optical security cameras can observe such areas under good lighting and visibility conditions, but objects might get invisible when fog, darkness or smoke reduces the visibility. This problem can be solved with millimeter-wave radars with very high slew rates of the chirp signal. The radar has a detection range of above 100...

T. Rossner, R. Sarwar, A. Lyashenko, E. Dörsam & R. Werthschützky
This paper presents a novel concept of hot stamped conductors on wires in a nano- or microscale. The process of producing arrays of wires selectively on the desired contact pad by electroplating of a template foil is described. The new concept provides electrical conductivity by penetration of wire arrays through the conductive layer of a hot stamping foil. Because of the small cross section of the wires, a large surface provides a low resistance between...

A5.4 - Clean or not clean - Detecting fouling in heat exchangers

E. Wallhäußer, M.A. Hussein & T. Becker
Fouling describes unwanted deposits on heat transferring surfaces leading to reduced heat transfer and increased heat transfer resistance. Hence, fouling is a severe issue particularly in food processing because product quality and safety cannot be ensured, and plant efficiency is reduced. As a result, cleaning is performed which limits processing time and increases plant downtime as well as costs because usually it cannot be adapted to amount and type of fouling present. Monitoring of cleaning...

H.J. Krenner, D. A. Fuhrmann, St. Völk, F. J. R. Schülein, F. Knall, J. Ebbecke & A. Wixforth
We employ surface acoustic waves to probe and manipulate optically active nanosystems. We demonstrate that the attenuation of a SAW provides a high sensitivity probe of the electrical conductivity by measuring the persistent photoconductivity in a multi quantum well structure. Moreover we apply SAW to dissociate photogenerated electron-hole pairs and by acoustic transport convey these at the speed of sound over macroscopic distances to a remote quantum emitter. After inherently sequential injection of electrons and...

R. Kuells, S. Nau, Ch. Bohland, M. Salk & K. Thoma
A new piezoresistive high-g accelerometer is presented that was developed on the basis of an unconventional, displacement focused design approach. The approach analyses the “geometrical constant”, which describes the relation between the square of the resonant frequency and the displacement under static load of a spring-mass system. The value is maximized in order to achieve a high sensitivity, high bandwidth accelerometer. It has a figure of merit (sensitivity times resonant frequency squared) of about 5·106/m,...
