indicator dilution methods assume flow rate is constant,

only measure average flow. EM flowmeters enable

measurement of instantaneous flow.

-a moving conductor in a (possibly constant) magnetic

field will have a voltage induced across it

DC Flowmeter

  • use DC (constant) magnetic field

  • half-cell potential results across each sensing electrode, in series with the flow signal, even with non-polarizable potentials

  • pick up stray ECG

  • basically doesn’t work well, and DC flowmeters are not used.

  • flow frequency range: 0 - 30 Hz

Quadrature suppression l.jpg
Quadrature Suppression

Discussed in Chapter 8 of text. To understand it fully, we

must go over several modulation/demodulation methods:

  • Amplitude Modulation/Demodulation

  • Double Sideband Modulation /Demodulation

  • Quadrature Multiplexing/Demultiplexing

Quadrature DSB (QDSB) Modulation

-allows one to transmit two different information signals, m1(t)

and m2(t) using the same carrier frequency, this enables more

efficient bandwidth utilization.
