The root mean square (RMS) measurements of alternating signal (AC) are frequently done by means of thermal transfer instruments. The principle of these thermal transfer instruments is to transfer the heating energy of resistive load to a temperature sensing-element. The DC output of the sensor gauges the amount of electrical power (AC or DC) applied to the input. The paper examines performance of an RMS-DC thermal converter of a solid state technology type at various frequencies such as LT1088CD integrated circuit.The theoretical and simulation analysis is carried out to outline the factors influencing the transfer characteristics of the converter device in the DC and AC input regimes.
