Introduction to the application of the Operational Transfer Path Analysis (Web Training)

Transfer paths of complex structures and transfer functions with the OTPA

In this web-training we show you how you can use the method of Operational Transfer Path Analysis (OTPA) to determine contributions of different transfer paths in the shortest time.

We provide relevant sample measurement data and proceed with the most important steps and settings in PAK. In detail, we discuss the use of Crosstalk Cancellation (CTC), the creation of a TPS network and the result visualization in the PAK graphics.

In the web training we do not discuss the acquisition of OTPA measurement data. Our experience shows an on-site workshop is better suited for this purpose. One reason for this is that on site we can carry out the relevant sensor positioning directly on your measurement object. However, in the web training we give general tips for sensor positioning.
