Application of neural network for real-time measurement of electrical resistivity in cold crucible
Pavel Votava – Igor Poznyak
The article describes use of an Induction furnace with cold crucible as a tool for real-time measurement of a melted material electrical resistivity. The measurement is based on an inverse problem solution of a 2D mathematical model, possibly implementable in a microcontroller or a FPGA in a form of a neural network. The 2D mathematical model results has been provided as a training set for the neural network. At the end, the implementation results are discussed together with uncertainty of measurement, which is done by the neural network implementation itself.
