I. INTRODUCTION
Measurements made during monitoring the course of
technology processes should be considered as a holistic
process starting from the perception and transformation
of measuring information taken from an object to its
processing, storage, transmission and utilization, to
produce a feedback effect on controlled technological
objects. In modern terms to assure one of the most
important parameters of measurement devices (MD),
required metrological reliability, in practice the processes
of measurement are constantly supervised [1]. Reliable
measurement information of necessary accuracy can be
obtained only by technically proved choice of
measurement devices, which includes the following
information [2]: availability of object controlling and
measuring parameters; allowable values of object
controlled and measurement parameter deviations as well
as permissible errors of parameter measurement;
acceptable probability of false and unknown failure for
each controlled parameter and confidence values for
measured parameters; the distribution laws of measured
(controlled) parameters and their measurement errors that
may occur while using devices of parameter measurement
(control); measurement conditions: mechanical stress
(vibration, shock, acceleration etc.); climatic influences
(temperature, humidity, pressure etc.); the presence or
absence of actively harmful environment (aggressive
gases and liquids, high temperature or electrical voltage,
fungi, mold, electromagnetic fields, radioactive and other
radiation etc.), where means of measurement or their
elements should be exploited.
Considering this information, exact specifications of a
necessary measurement device (allowable limits for
primary and secondary errors) are calculated.
II. EXPLOITATION TASK ESTABLISHMENT
A. Metrological reliability of measuring devices
Accuracy of measurement (control) parameters,
which indicates the probability that the measurement
error value will not exceed the allowable values at a
specified likelihood, is one of the main metrological
characteristics of measurement devices during periodic
monitoring. Today national and international normative
documents recommend systematic and complete control
of the measurement process in order to guarantee the
required quality level of goods, products and services
produced by using measuring devices. This control is
treated as a separate and lengthy procedure [1]. The
proposed standard recommends the monitoring of
measuring control processes with statistical processing of
measurement results and documenting. It is necessary to
determine the frequency of checking the measurements
for each individual process, in particular as a technical
and economic compromise between the value of
metrological checks (with the removal or replacement of
means from a measurement process, or with halting a
production process, transportation of a measuring device
to a testing laboratory, and calibration conductance, in the
case of irreplaceability) and importance of precision of
the measured parameters for quality assurance. It depends
on the following four main factors [1] the number of
inspections, required degree of security, degree of
importance of measurement error sources, stability of the
process.
Frequency of metrology inspection is primarily
determined by the metrological reliability of
measurement. To improve the reliability of measurement,
frequency should be increased. On the other hand, the
implementation of metrological verification is associated
with significant economic costs and therefore its period
should be maximized. Consequently the problem of
establishing optimal verification intervals stays
complicated and partly solvable. For example, in Canada
and the United States, laboratories of national reference
service do not indicate expiration of the metrological
verification, thus implying temporal changes in the values
of the error, and leaving the next issue of the metrological
verification to the consumer [2-5].
B. Express checking of metrological conditions of
measuring devices
The ultimate goal of efficient control of measurement
processes is to improve the metrological reliability.
Implementation of this procedure is connected with two
scientific and technical aspects. The first is a quantitative
characteristic – the reliability of control, and the second –
the frequency of the monitoring.
To ensure high reliability of control D = 1, one should
in practice provide symmetrical limits of a permissible
measurement error with the mathematical expectation
Мх) = 0. The equality of the mathematical expectation
of a measurement tool error to zero in real operating
conditions can be achieved only with correcting a
systematic error component.
In terms of a modern element base, the code-control
measures of electrical quantities can easily be made
compact and portable [2, 3], and therefore controlling the
errors of measurements can be hold arbitrarily, often at
the place in question. Frequency of control operations
will depend on the time drift of measurement device
metrological characteristics, and control results can be
fixed in a special card. A conclusion about suitability of a
measurement device or need for its metrological
verification can be made on the basis of analyzing card
data. Of course, while determining the boundaries of
permissible values of error ΔXP of measurement devices,
the values of impact variables should be monitored, and
the corresponding values of additional errors should be
calculated in working conditions.
III. DESIGN OF A PRECISION OHMMETER
CALIBRAT ION UNIT
A. Measurement device errors correction by code-
control measure means
In a general case, the error value depends on the input
informative signal R and to analyze it a polynomial model
is the most applicable [2, 3].
The additive error component (AEC)
x0
,
multiplicative
sx
δ
and nonlinear
x
ε
coefficients of this
model are variables or processes that depend on the
Q
vectors of parameters measuring circuit and
ζ
factors of
errors, but do not depend on the informative parameter X.
Unfortunately, there is no universal method of adjusting
systematic errors, because of variety of methods, tools
and conditions of measurement [2, 3]. Prediction of
temporal changes of errors requires a large set of
experiments for a particular type of measurement devices
in the exploitation conditions [6].
Since the use of modern microelectronic and
information technology enables us to implement small-
size code-control measures, to measure electrical
quantities, differential or compensation methods are the
most appropriate [2, 3].
B. Possibilities of ohmmeters remote calibration
There are many different devices produce for the
sensors resistance simulation [7-9]. But it has some
disadvantages especially large values of permissible error
and small resolution and stationary fulfillment provides to
significantly complicate the ohmmeter calibration
procedure on the exploitation place.
To carry out an efficient control of MD, being
exploited, it is advisable to use portable code-control
measures (calibrators) of electrical quantities [5]. It is
known that for high control accuracy, the limit of
admissible error values of code-control measures should
be several times less than the limits of acceptable error
values of controlled MD [2, 3]. In exploitation
conditions, the functioning of serial calibrators of
electrical quantities requires periodic manual adjustment
of an AEC. It increases the complexity of metrology
operations and the time of their conduction, which, in
some cases, is virtually unacceptable because of the very
limited time for involving an operator at such
technological objects, for example, as nuclear power
plants [4]. Therefore the calibrators of electrical
quantities are expected to be provided with an automatic
AEC adjustment, or one can apply the method of
commutation inverting during measuring electrical
quantities [2, 3].
If the implementation of voltmeters calibrating
methods, based on the voltages calibrated sources, using
the double inversion method the precision ohmmeters
calibration process is not so obvious [2, 3]. During the
ohmmeters remote calibration by electrical resistance
measure-simulators using, one should, first of all, provide
invariance to the influence of connecting line resistances
[2, 3]. Obviously, the practical invariance to impact of
connecting line resistance can be assured only by four-
wired sensors’ connection, although in practice various
structures of ohmmeters with three-wired sensor
attaching are used [2-5]. Another important problem
during calibration of an ohmmeter in exploitation
condition is the effect of resistance simulator errors,
especially of equivalent AEC, whose value depends on
the value of the control code [2, 3].
Considering the expounded before, calibrating the
precision ohmmeters should be made with involving the
resistance simulators according to the structure shown in
Fig. 1.
The principle of this calibration scheme consists in
adding the two ohmmeter measurement results obtained
at different values of measuring current flowing through
the code-control measure-simulator of resistance.
In a regular work mode, the measured resistance RX is
connected to the ADC entrance through the connected
key SХ hereby both calibrating keys S1K and S2K are
disconnected. During calibration, the measuring key SХ is
disconnected, and the calibrating resistor RK is connected
to the ADC entrance by the switched on key S1K (S2K is
disconnected) or the connected key S2K (S1K is
disconnected). Alternating connection of keys S1K and S2K
provides the flowing of measuring current Іі through the
calibrating resistor RK in opposite directions.
A similar structure of electrical resistance calibration
should be employed for precision ΣΔ ADC of the type
AD7792 (AD7793) [10]. Owing to four-wired connection
of the measuring RХ and calibrating RK resistors to these
ADC, the possibility of remote efficient control of a
whole measuring tract of the ohmmeters built on their
basis is assured. Hereby, the switchers SХ, S, S of four-
pole commutation should be realized on the basis of
complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor transistors,
for example ADG419 Analog Device.
The code-controlled measure-simulator of electrical
resistance is suggested being implemented according to
the scheme in Fig. 2 [2, 3, 11].
The code-control resistance simulator based of Ohm
law reproducing for the electrical circuit part. The
simulator current Ii flows through the input terminal 1, an
precision resistor RN, operational amplifier (OA) output
A3 and terminal 2 (fig. 2). The simulator active part
include voltage buffer A1, multiplying DAC1 with output
OA A2, and voltage inverter A3 and DAC2 and
reproduce at the A3 output voltage opposite to drop
voltage of precision resistor RN and their value is
depended of control code μ. As a result between 1 and 2
simulator terminal reproduce resistance Ri, which ideal
value can be found from the expression [11]

In this case the multiplying DAC2 is used as
conductivities of OA A3 feedback.
Experimental investigation results had shown that

simulator measure was near 0,0001 Ohm at several
miliamperes of measuring current value and resolution

As seen from the formulas (6) and (7), AEC of code-
control resistance simulator is adjusted by commutation
inverting, and ACE and MCE of a checked (calibrated)
ohmmeter are quite simply determined in exploitation
conditions.
Moreover, the multiplying DACs by the R-2R
matrices based have very small value of a conversion
temperature coefficient of the degree ±15·10-6 %/0С [12].
Then they are proposed to be used reproduce ohm values
by an resistive measure simulator at exploitation
conditions. In this case, the invariance to the temperature
influence of reproduced resistance values within the
whole range of environmental temperature altering is
provided [3, 11, 12]. The use of a resistor RN with
thermo-compensation unit allows this measure
application as precision code-control resistance at the
whole ohmmeter exploitation conditions [2, 3, 13].
IV. CONCLUSIONS
The algorithm of solving the problem of calibration of
precision ohmmeters in exploitation condition is
proposed. The scheme of calibrating the meters of
electrical resistance with additive error component
measures’ adjustment by commutation inverting has been
developed. The structure scheme of a code-control
measure-simulator of electrical resistance has been
designed.
The conducted analysis of structural schemes and the
procession of the results of conversion after the method
of commutation inverting enable us to calibrate precision
ohmmeters on the spot and evaluate their metrological
parameters in exploitation conditions.

... The additive displacements correction for the design of active values calibrators can be solved by means of the dual inverting signals method [30][31][32][33]. The metrological properties of the calibrators of passive physical quantities (resistance, conductivity, capacitance, and inductance) are primarily determined by switching elements of residual parameters in their coded reproduction and during the reproduction subband switching [33][34]. Taking into account the achievements of modern microelectronic and information technologies, electrical quantities portable calibrators should have a circuitry suitable for integrated circuits manufacturing or integrated circuit chips, for example, programmable systems on a chip. ...
... It is known that depending on the value, the measured resistance can be connected to an ohmmeter by means of two-, three-and four-wire communication lines. Therefore, we use a four-wire communication line when measuring low-value resistances (less than 100 ohms), the medium-value (10 2 ... 10 7 Ohm) -twoconductor line and high-altitude (more than 10 7 Ohm) -triple connect line [32][33][34]. It does not depend on the ohmmeter action principle on the measurable resistance to be scattered by a certain power, which value, as a rule, increases while increase of the device accuracy class. ...
... As was noted above, the main disadvantages of multi-valued RCM are low discreteness and implementation complexity due to the need to use a large number of multi-nominal precision large-scale resistors and high current and high-voltage electronic switches with small residual parameters [29, [32][33][34]. It is precisely the absence of RCM in the range zones below 0.01 Ohm and above 10 MOhm due to the lack of electronic commutators with satisfactory parameters [35,36]. ...

It is noted that the general introduction of alternative energy sources is a strategic direction of modern energy supply. Today when increasing the efficiency and environmental safety of modern energy generating facilities, it is very important to reduce the negative far-reaching consequences for the environment. To achieve this, it is proposed to introduce modern cyber-physical systems on existing energy objects with the possibility of operative control of their measuring channels in real time. It is suggested to use portable code-controlled measures-simulators to ensure the efficiency of measurements in dispersed information measuring devices of power systems. The application of such measures allows practically implementing measurement control systems that ensure the suitability of measuring methods and measuring equipment to its intended use and the risk specified level of obtaining improbable results of measurement. It is also shown that the operational control of the measuring channels’ parameters allows ensuring the metrological conformity of the dispersed cyber-physical systems, since traditional methods in this case practically cannot be used. It demonstrates that construction of passive electric values calibrators disparate of active one, is associated with fundamental constraints due to the significant influence of the switching elements parameters. It is confirmed that the implement of the simulating electric resistance principle for a circuit part allows simultaneously increasing resolution, accuracy and reliability, and extending functionality. It is also shown that low-resistance (high-current and low-voltage) imitation ranges can implement four-clamping measures of an electric resistance by the error correction method of double-voltage inverting. The resistance imitator structure is proposed for the medium-resistance subband, which provides invariance for the connecting wires resistance influence, the circuit additive displacements and the unification with DC voltage calibrators. For the reproducible resistances subband expansion in high-resistance (high-voltage) area, code-controlled conductivity measures invariant to the residual parameters of switching elements are proposed and there are suitable for microelectronic accomplishment. It is suggested and analyzed code-controlled measures of admittance, which can be used for operative control of impedance meters. The suggested and analyzed code-controlled measure structures of electrical resistance and complex conductivity can be implemented in microelectronic applications in the basis of programmable systems on a chip. This enables the practical implementation of a universal portable calibrator of active and passive electric values with automatic error correction.
... Given the stated requirements, the authors developed a structure of a code-controlled measure of complex conductivities [19]- [20] ( fig. 1). It contains an operational amplifier, three unambiguous exemplary impedance measures, three code-controlled voltage dividers (DAC), and four voltage repeaters. ...
... In order to minimize these errors and the time required to establish reproducible values of control codes , one should correctly choose the frequency properties of the used hardware components. During analyzing of frequency characteristics in the first approximation, we assume that the same type of OA is used in simulators, the coefficient frequency response of which is approximated as transmitting inertial link [20,21]     ...

The idea of sustainability is based on three main pillars which are the society, the environment, and the economy, and is aimed at meeting the requirements of the present generation, and ensuring the ability of fulfillment of needs for future generations. The sustainability requires implementation of energy and resource-efficient technologies, which are environmentally friendly, reduce production waste and incorporate their effective management, and maintain financially-effective as well. On account of the effort and costs associated with the titanium manufacturing, there is a consequential need for improved sustainable production of this material. Extensively utilization of titanium and its alloys for specialized applications in the fields of aerospace, medical and general industry, caused by their high specific strength and excellent corrosion resistance, drive the development of this class of materials. Nevertheless, despite their desirable properties, they are generally considered as products of high-cost. This work presents an overview of current titanium production methods, their critical evaluation, as well as trends in titanium production development processes in conjunction with the idea of sustainable manufacturing. This paper focuses on titanium production processes with particular emphasis on the operating conditions, the effect of energy consumption and environmental impact assessment of current and proposed technologies of titanium production. The main object of this work is to discuss the challenges, economic and environmental aspects of titanium and its alloys’ production methods.

The aim of the work is to improve the methods and means of environmental monitoring of the parameters of aqueous media using a quadrocopter with a multispectral camera. The process of indirect measurement of biomass and pigment parameters of phytoplankton in the near-surface layer of the water objects is investigated. Instrumental and methodical errors of indirect measurements in the near-surface layer of the aquatic environment with the use of the developed means of ecological control are analyzed. The effect of changes in the spectral characteristics of illumination was corrected with respect to the object with known spectral characteristics of the diffuse reflection coefficient. In the course of multiple regression, regression equations were obtained that allow determining biomass and pigment parameters of phytoplankton based on processing of multispectral images. An analysis of measurement errors was used when using the eight-channel multispectral cameras CMS. Optimal wavelengths of spectral channels and their number are selected from the condition of ensuring a minimum value of the total error.

Improvement of portable equipment for controlling the DC voltage measuring channels of cyber-physical systems at the operating sites is proposed. Additive offsets and drifts make a dominant contribution to the error of portable DC voltage calibrators. Automatic correction based on the method of double switching inversion provides the opportunity to increase the productivity of multichannel system voltage meters at the operating sites. It is shown that the additive offsets during the DC voltage reproduction, in addition to the equivalent offset voltages of the operational amplifiers, ADCs or DACs, are caused by common type noises and leakage currents through the isolation of the power supply units. In the developed structure of the DC voltage calibrator, it is proposed to use the method of double switching inversion with subsequent analog averaging of the output signal for the automatic correction of the additive offsets. The error analysis and simulation showed the principal possibility of the calibrator additive offsets correction to the values limited by the non-identity of parameters of the closed pairs of switches. The analysis of the results of experimental studies of the voltage calibrator layout showed the invariance of the reproduced voltages from the voltage value and the location of the simulator of the additive error component in the layout structure. The uncorrected error value in the manual mode did not exceed ±1 μV for all reproduced values of the output voltage of the layout. It has been experimentally shown that the minimum value of the uncorrected error lies at a switching frequency of about 1.2 kHz within ±5 μV. The developed scheme can be implemented in the basis of programmable systems on the chip, which significantly improves the metrological characteristics, reduces the cost and unifies portable voltage calibrators and DC resistance simulators.

Extrapolation of the metrological characteristic probable variation is another way for measurement units' metrological reliability estimation. If it possible the measuring devices higher precision class is the sense of third way of the metrological reliability protection. A lot of experimental results elaboration is necessary for correct metrological reliability characteristics estimation by the both first ways. International standard ISO 10012:2003 recommended both measuring process and measuring device control methods introduction. The measuring devices errors polynomial model analysis is presented in this paper too. For the main additive and accidental parts of measuring units error correction by inverse commutating (flip-flop) method is proposed in this paper. The structural circuits with automatically correction both of the bias voltages and accidental inputs signals are proposed for decreasing of the additive constituent error. The differential measurement method with code control measure using is described in this paper too. The main requirements such as on-chip realization and some destabilization quantity influence corrections is discussed too.
