Determination of amendments to the instability of measurement means

Description: Due to the fact that an acceptable approach to determining the value of the amendment to the MM testimony for instability has not yet been developed, this issue is still relevant to specialists and heads of metrological services. One of the tasks solved in this case is to ensure the traceability of the measurement results by applying the SI calibration and introducing various corrections to their readings, including corrections for instability. In accordance with the above, this article describes models for estimating the value of corrections for instability of measuring instruments, and also analyzes their suitability using the annual data of the calibration results of the calibrator-gauge KISS-03, the light filter kit KNS-10.2 and the pressure calibrator CPH 6000. A comparative analysis of the methods by Monte-Carlo simulation was carried out, as well as an experimental study of the SI for the purpose of estimating the instability. A model was selected that adequately describes the instability of measuring instruments in accordance with RMG 115-2011. As a result, we obtained estimates of the average drift velocity of the error of measures and forecast using statistical models (average drift velocity averaged over several counts in accordance with the recommendations of RMG 74-2004, RMG 115-2011 and COOMET R / GM / 32: 2017; average drift velocity , estimated by the least squares method (OLS); average drift velocity, estimated using simple (SMA), weighted (WMA) or exponential (EMA) moving average methods for describing the instability selected for the SI study. It was concluded that the most appropriate prediction is provided by using the model of exponential (EMA) and weighted (WMA) moving averages.
