A reevaluation of the NIST low-frequency standards for AC-DC difference in the voltage range 0.6-100 V

T.E. Lipe
1996 IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement  
A reevaluation of the NIST standards of ac-dc difference was undertaken in an effort to reduce the calibration uncertainty offered by NIST for thermal voltage converters (TVC's) at frequencies bellow 100  ...  This reevaluation of the NIST low-frequency standards will permit a significant reduction in uncertainty for ac-dc difference calibrations at 10 Hz in the voltage range from 0.6-100 V.  ...  Zhang, Statistical Engineering Division, NIST, for advice on the statistical aspects of this work.  ...

CCE intercomparison of AC-DC transfer standards

J.P.M. de Vreede
1993 IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement  
A worldwide intercomparison is described covering both ac voltage and ac current measurements in the frequency range from 40 Hz to 1 MHz.  ...  Results are consistent within 10-20 ppm at low voltage and frequency, but differ by up to 100 ppm at high voltage and frequency.  ...  From the data obtained in this intercomparison it seems that ac-dc transfer measurements for voltage are in agreement to within some 10 ppm for the lower ranges (up to 100 V) and within the audio range  ...

Uncertainty analysis for ac-dc difference measurements with the AC Josephson Voltage Standard

Jason M Underwood
2018 Metrologia  
For audio frequencies and for voltages less than 200 mV, ac-dc transfers with the ACJVS may reduce the combined uncertainty by factors of 2 to 10, compared with conventional methods based on thermal converters  ...  In agreement with earlier work, the transmission line is the primary contributor to Type B errors for frequencies above 10 kHz.  ...  Acknowledgments The author would like to thank T. Lipe, N. Shattuck, and S. Cular for valuable discussions related to ac-dc difference, B. Waltrip and N.  ...
