The existing acceleration measuring methods are analyzed in the article. An overview of modern research on this topic is also provided. A new method of measuring acceleration in the form of an electrical circuit using a stable frequency generator is developed. Among the already known methods, the following three groups are highlighted in the analysis: methods based on compensatory accelerometers with discrete output; methods based on accelerometers with the analog-to-digital converter; measurement techniques, which use mounted elements. The main difference between the proposed method and the existing ones is the use of circuits of two resonant circles with built-in capacitance sensors, developed according to microelectromechanical system technologies. The principle of operation of the acceleration measuring device is described in the article, and its structural diagrams are provided. The peculiarities of the functioning of its components are analyzed. The main advantages of using the proposed method are highlighted. It is described the technical difference of this method from those already implemented ones, which also lies in the presence of an additional transformer. Based on the proposed method of measuring acceleration in the form of an electrical circuit, the operating frequency characteristics of the device are investigated. The stages of conversion of accelerometer signals are described in the article as well as the forms of input and output signals. The use of two resonant circles within built capacity sensors and the stable frequencies generator in the scheme of acceleration measuring device allows for measurement of the frequency characteristics changes in resonant circuits with minimum capacity changes in sensors. The resulting frequency value is linear in the range of the accelerometer frequency due to the frequency characteristics of the first and second resonance circles, which are reversed and symmetrical about the horizontal axis. A feature of the developed new measurement method is the possibility of using this scheme at very low input voltages. Due to the proposed method, it is possible to increase the accuracy of acceleration measurement and expand the working capabilities of the device. In its turn, it allows applying this device in vibration and position variation conditions.
