In radioactivity logging. The length of time the system requires to recover from counting an event, in order to count a successive event. Events occurring during dead time are not counted. Usually measured in microseconds.
after a foul occurs, the offense has three seconds to make a free throw. These three seconds are known as deed time because the clock is not running. Any defensive foul during dead time is a kick out, therefore if we are on offense it is very important to move during dead time and create a situation where they must foul us
Dead time is the amount of time that it takes for your process variable to start changing after your valve changes. If you were taking a shower, the dead time is the amount of time it would take for you (the controller) to feel a change in temperature after you have adjusted the hot or cold water. Pure dead time processes are usually found in plug flow or solids transportation loops. Examples are paper machine and conveyor belt loops. Dead time is also called delay. A controller cannot make the process variable respond before the process dead time. To a controller, a process may appear to have more dead time than what it actually has. That is, the controller cannot be tuned tight enough (without going unstable) to make the process variable respond appreciably before an equivalent dead time. More accurately, the characteristic time of the loop is determined by equivalent dead time. Equivalent dead time consists of pure dead time plus process components contributing more than 180 degrees of phase lag. The phase of dead time increases proportionally with frequency. Any process having more than 180 degrees phase lag has equivalent dead time.
