Abstract

Researchers within the Quantum Electrical Metrology Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have implemented a calibration procedure for four-terminal-pair capacitance standards from 0.01 uF to 100 uF [1], [2]. This method depends on the accurate characterization of a 1 nF capacitor and an Inductive Voltage Divider (IVD) 1:10 ratio from 100 Hz to 100 kHz. This paper discusses a procedure that evaluates the IVD ratio and offers an enhancement over the current method. Also the evaluation of the 10 nF capacitor is presented and a measurement procedure modification is suggested that significantly improves the result.
