    MFMP dogbone thermal versus applied power. A case study




    In post #445 in this forum thread we have shown that for the second MFMP dogbone thermal test the applied electrical power differs largely from the calulated thermal power.
    This can be possibly…

    Let me quess.

    Instead of applying heat by a continuous pulse width modulated voltage to the heater coil you are now applying power in a more burst like fashion ?

    So you changed the control algorithm to incorporate the Mouse and Cat protocol ?

    Initially that didn't work also
    If I loaded another profile then the one embedded in the Ravi file, then the colored temperature information disappeared.
    Also the configuration menu was not properly working and I had many…

    I took this horizental profile from the Ravi 500W file



    And think indeed that this is a profile measured with an in band Optris emissivity setting of 1

    The text in the report is :

    We therefore took the same emissivity trend found in the literature as reference; but, by applying emissivity reference dots along the rods, we were able to adapt that curve to this specific type of

    The report says the dummy run used thermocouples for temperature (which were not used for the active runs).


    You just can't make this stuff up!

    Sure they used thermocouples in preparation of the dummy run.

    Nice work !

    From which MFMP test did you use the Ravi data ?
    The 700 Watt or 900 Watt run ?

    The minimum temperature set for the color display was somewhat high in the MFMP Ravi file and as such the cap temperatures where a flat profile showing the…

    Thank's for your checking that theory and practice are about in line, at least for the lower temperatures.

    Really appreciate it because I was not sure if we where overlooking something.

    Thanks again

    I wrote in the past already a VB program which integrates the Planck function over a bandwith range.
    Will play with it or adapt it to find n for the Optris band as a function of the temperature

    You can do a numerical integration of the Planck curve spectral power over the camera frequency passband, and note how that changes with T. Specifically Accuracy would require knowing the Optris spectral response which may be difficult…
