Lecture 14: Calibration of thermistor; Energy balance model for the fish tank

What to bring

  • Fish tank (with long breadboard, LCD panel, etc)
  • 12 V power supply
  • empty water bottles for salinity control
  • two insulated coffee mugs for thermistor calibration

Learning Objectives

  • Be able to build a circuit to measure the output of a voltage divider for a thermistor
  • Be able to collect calibration data for your thermistor
  • Be able to describe the steps necessary to reduce the thermistor calibration data to a form that can be included in the temperature control algorithm for the fish tank
