AbstractIn Aerospace applications, pressure measurement plays a vital role as it serves as one of the input to onboard controller to aid decision- making on initiating or terminating some of the critical events. In this paper, the design aspects of pressure sensor using linear eddy current displacement sensor (ECDS) are presented along with its performance evaluation. The static calibration is carried out to select the best position of ECDS in the proposed pressure sensor. The effect of target temperature on sensor output is presented with test results to aid compensation. A compensation algorithm is developed to minimise the error due to target temperature. The developed compensation algorithm is validated using thermal calibration. The designed pressure sensor is calibrated using Arson dynamic pressure calibrator to evaluate its bandwidth. The calibration results are analysed to aid future sensor design towards improvement of accuracy, bandwidth and miniaturisation.
