AbstractCalculating the power spectral density (PSD) at the transducer or data acquisition system offers advantages in a network-based telemetry system. The PSD is provided in real time to the users. The conversion to PSD can either be lossless (allowing a complete reconstruction of the transducer signal) or lossy (providing data compression). Post-processing can convert the PSD back to time histories if desired. A complete reconstruction of the signal is possible, including knowledge of the signal level between the sample periods. Properly implemented, this method of data collection provides a sharp anti-aliasing filter with minimal added cost. Currently no standards exist for generating PSDs on the vehicle. New standards could help telemetry system designers understand the benefits and limitations calculating the power spectral density in a network-based telemetry system.
