Spectral Analysis of Nonharmonic and Polyharmonic Responses of an Electrochemical Object at Impedance Measurements

Possibilities for increasing efficiency of impedance spectral measurements are investigated. It is shown that for determination of linear electrochemical impedance a linearly changing input signal is preferable, and for the quantitative estimation of non-linearity of electrochemical impedance as an input signal it is expedient to use the cosine electric beats. The constructive diagrams of generators of such signals are offered.
