conductance-variation method

conductance-variation method

[kən′dək·təns ver·ē′ā·shən ‚meth·əd]
(electricity)
A technique for measuring low admittances; measurements in a parallel-resonance circuit with the terminals open-circuited, with the unknown admittance connected, and then with the unknown admittance replaced by a known conductance standard are made; from them the unknown can be calculated.
