dc.description.abstract RMS measuring device is a nonlinear device consisting of linear and nonlinear devices. The performance of rms measurement is influenced by a number of factors; i) signal characteristics, 2) the measurement technique used and 3) the device characteristics. RMS measurement is not simple, particularly when the signals are complex and unknown. The problem of rms measurement on high crest-factor signals is fully discussed and a solution to this problem is presented in this thesis. The problem of rms measurement is systematically analized and found to have mainly three types of errors: (1) amplitude or waveform error 2) Frequency error and (3) averaging error. Various rms measurement techniques are studied and compared. On the basis of this study the rms -measurement is reclassified three categories: (1) Wave-form-error-free measurement (2) High-frequncy-error measurement and (3) Low-frequency error-free measurement. In modern digital sampled-data systems the signals are complex and waveform-error-free rms measurement is highly appreciated. Among the three basic blocks of rms measuring device the squarer is the most important one. A squaring technique is selected, that permits shaping of the squarer error characteristic in such a way as to achieve waveform-errob free rms measurement. The squarer is designed, fabricated and tested. A hybrid rms measurement using an analog rms computing device and digital display combines the speed of analog techniques and the resolution and ease of measurement of digital techniques. An A/D converter is modified to perform the square-rooting operation. A 10-V rms voltmeter using the developed rms detector is fabricated and tested. The chapters two, three and four analyse the problems involved in rms measurement and present a comparative study of rms computing techniques and devices. The fifth chapter gives the details of the developed rms detector that permits wave-form-error free rms measurement. The sixth chapter, enumerates the the highlights of the thesis and suggests a list of future projects en_US
