Time Synchronous Averaging
When performing electroacoustical response measurements, an important practical consideration is the reduction of uncorrelated background noise. Synchronous averaging (i.e., “complex averaging,” “time domain averaging,” or “vector averaging”) is a technique originally developed to analyze the vibration signature or rotating machines and gearboxes. It can be used to improve the S/N ratio measurement. This article was published originally in Voice Coil November 2012.
