Abstract

We present details of numerical techniques developed to compensate the effects of hysteresis experienced by a hybrid piezoelectric fiber optic voltage sensor. The techniques, implemented using a real-time signal processing system, are tested and their effectiveness evaluated experimentally. The best of the proposed algorithms provides phase error compensation from approximately 7 to nearly 0 deg, and allows us to perform sensor calibration to achieve accuracy better than 0.5% (full scale output).
