Detailed Description
To make the objects, technical solutions and advantages of the embodiments of the present invention clearer, the technical solutions of the present invention will be clearly and completely described below with reference to the accompanying drawings, and the described embodiments are some, but not all embodiments of the present invention.
The first embodiment is as follows:
fig. 1 is a schematic flowchart of a time interval measurement method based on nonlinear regression according to a first embodiment of the present invention, and as shown in fig. 1, the method includes the following five steps.
Step S101: the signal to be measured enters an LC oscillator to generate a damping sine wave. Specifically, a first signal to be detected enters the LC oscillator, and the first signal to be detected excites the capacitor charging and inductor discharging of the LC oscillator to generate a damping sine wave signal. It should be noted that, since the time interval between two signals to be measured needs to be measured, two LC oscillators are required to process the two signals to be measured respectively. As shown in fig. 2, the first signal to be measured and the second signal to be measured are two pulse signals, and the two pulse signals respectively enter the LC oscillator to be excited to generate a damping sine wave.
In a preferred embodiment, the quality factor of the LC oscillator is smaller than a first threshold value, so that the amplitude of the damped sine wave decays to zero within a few hundred nanoseconds.
In another preferred embodiment, the resonant frequency of the LC oscillator is greater than a second threshold to obtain rich damped sinusoidal oscillation data. Therefore, the method can ensure that richer damped sine oscillation information is obtained by sampling in the process of hundreds of nanoseconds attenuation, so that the recovered damped sine wave before the original sampling is more accurate.
Step S102: and performing A/D conversion and sampling on the damping sine wave signal to generate a digital signal. The sampling rate was determined by adjustment experiments. As shown in fig. 2, the damped sine wave signal is a/D converted and sampled to generate a digital signal.
In a preferred embodiment, the frequency value of the samples adopts a decimal value, so that the problem that the phase of the sampled signal cannot traverse the phase of the original signal due to integral multiple sampling is avoided, and inherent time interval measurement deviation and resolution reduction are effectively prevented.
Step S103: and carrying out nonlinear regression estimation on the digital signal. Specifically, the sampled data is subjected to estimation of the amplitude, frequency, phase and damping coefficient of the damping sine wave by a least square method. It should be noted that, for the parameter to be estimated, the greater the number of sampling points of the system, the more advantageous the accuracy of estimating the parameter is.
Step S104: the time interval of the two damped sine wave signals is estimated. Specifically, a damping sine wave signal generated by the first signal to be measured and a damping sine wave signal generated by the second signal to be measured are subjected to correlation operation to estimate a time interval of the two damping sine wave signals.
It should be noted that the correlation operation is to calculate the similarity of two signals, which represents the relative distance between the two signals in time, so that the result of the correlation operation is the result of the time interval measurement.
Step S105: the signal time interval is measured continuously. Specifically, steps S101 to S104 are repeated to achieve continuous measurement of the signal time interval.
The second embodiment:
the embodiment of the present invention provides a time interval measurement system based on nonlinear regression, which is mainly used for executing the time interval measurement method based on nonlinear regression provided by the above contents of the embodiment of the present invention, and the following provides specific descriptions on the time interval measurement system based on nonlinear regression provided by the embodiment of the present invention.
Fig. 3 is a schematic structural diagram of a time interval measuring system based on nonlinear regression according to a second embodiment of the present invention. As shown in fig. 3, the time interval measuring system based on nonlinear regression includes an LC oscillator 201, a sampling module 202, an estimation module 203, and a correlation operation module 204.
And the LC oscillator 201 generates a damping sine wave signal by the capacitance charging and inductance discharging of the LC oscillator under the excitation of the signal to be measured.
And the sampling module 202 is used for carrying out A/D conversion and sampling on the damping sine wave signal to generate a digital signal.
And the estimation module 203 performs nonlinear regression estimation on the digital signal to estimate the amplitude, the frequency, the phase and the damping coefficient of the damping sine wave.
The correlation operation module 204 performs correlation operation on the damping sine wave signal generated by the signal to be detected to estimate a time interval of the damping sine wave signal.
Finally, it should be noted that: the abovementioned embodiments are only specific embodiments of the present invention, which are used for illustrating the technical solutions of the present invention and not for limiting the same, and the protection scope of the present invention is not limited thereto, although the present invention is described in detail with reference to the foregoing embodiments, those skilled in the art should understand that: those skilled in the art can still make modifications or changes to the embodiments described in the foregoing embodiments, or make equivalent substitutions for some features, within the scope of the disclosure; such modifications, changes or substitutions do not depart from the spirit and scope of the embodiments of the present invention, and they should be construed as being included therein.
