Kasimov A.M., Mamedli E.M., Chernyavsky L.T., et al. Circuitry solutions for a backup channel hardware of a command device set in an aircraft control system


The paper discusses circuitry solutions for a backup channel of a combined aircraft control system. The channel provides the processing and correction of the data from fluidic apparent velocity sensors according to the specified algorithm.



Balakin S.V., Sterligov D.V. Modeling of dynamic errors of a liquid-propellant rockets fuel level meter


The paper describes the methodology of analytical modeling of dynamic components of fuel tank level measuring error at capacitance sensor measurements with liquid fuel build-up on the surfaces of incremental level transducers. The algorithm and a variant of a dynamic errors simulation program are presented.



Papko A.A. On realizability postulates of specific dynamic behavior and vibrostability of precision low-frequency accelerometers


The problems of providing the desired dynamic behavior and the vibrostability of balancing transform accelerometers are discussed. The paper proves that accelerometer’s dynamic behavior depends not so much on how the correcting link is connected as on whether the link belongs to direct or inverse transformation circuits. The results of synthesizing the correcting devices that enable dynamic behavior adjustment for the accelerometers with deep negative feedback are included. It is shown that the ways of dynamic behavior optimization based on the estimates of the output signal compliance with specific requirements do not ensure positive results in real-life devices where components operation is limited by the finite values of displacements, supply voltages, power, etc.
