    • Fluxgate sensor with increased homogeneity 

      Author: Ripka, Pavel; Jireš, František; Macháček, Milan
      (IEEE, 1990-09)
      Several types of fluxgate sensors were developed for measuring microvariations of the earth's magnetic field. Sensor cores were produced by etching, leading to better geometric homogeneity and long-term stability. This ...
    • Fluxgate: Tuned vs. Untuned Output 

      Author: Ripka, Pavel; Billingsley, S.W.
      (IEEE, 1998-07)
      Fluxgate voltage output contains information about the measured DC magnetic field in amplitude of even harmonic components. Tuning the sensor output causes the concentration of output energy to specific harmonics (usually ...

      (American Institute of Physics, 2018)
      The position of the piston in pneumatic cylinder with aluminum wall can be measured by external inductance sensor without modifications of the aluminum piston and massive iron piston rod. For frequencies below 20 Hz the ...
    • Influence of External Current on Yokeless Electric Current Transducers 

      Author: Ripka, P.; Chirtsov, A.
      (IEEE, 2017)
      Yokeless electric current transducers have compact size, but they are sensitive to external magnetic fields, including those caused by electric currents in their vicinity. It is often believed that this unwanted sensitivity ...

      Author: Butta, Mattia; Ripka, Pavel
      (IEEE, 2009-10)
      In this paper, we study the open-loop linearity of pulse excited coil-less fluxgate. Narrow current pulses can be used instead of classical sinewave for the excitation of the coil-less fluxgate. This method has shown several ...
