The Accelerations is a physical quantity and describes the change in the velocity of a body over a defined period of time. It is a directional variable and is used to describe movement processes.
The measurement and assessment of accelerations plays an important role, especially in the field of technical systems with dynamic loads. On the one hand, vibrations can be introduced into the substructure of industrial or wind turbines by operating the machines. In these cases, it must be checked to what extent this leads to premature ageing of the construction. On the other hand, certain limit values must be observed for the smooth operation of electrical installations.
By using acceleration sensors , accelerations can be measured and analyzed over a certain period of time. The company SKI has piezoelectric acceleration sensors available for this purpose, which convert the dynamic pressure fluctuations into electrical signals via sensor plates. These signals are transferred to the connected data logger and stored. By means of comparison models and natural frequency analyses of the designs, conclusions can be drawn on the effects of the accelerations.
