Some of the errors in transducers such as instrument transformers can be corrected as part of the digital processing for the measurement. The instrument transformer can be characterized in such a way that allows the Transducer Electronic Data Sheet of IEEE Std 1451 to transfer the information to the measurement system. A modification would allow the measurement system to perform a high-quality self-calibration whenever a transducer was replaced. That levies requirements on the characterization accuracy of the instrument transformer.
