The solution of a system exciting wire vibrations of a wire sensor allowing one to perform time-varying measurements, including rapid changes and of a chaotic nature, are presented in this paper. The system is based on the typical two-coil solution, in which one of the coils is responsible for exciting the wire vibrations while the other coil is used for recording those vibrations. The task of maintaining and not fading away the natural vibrations of the wire was solved by the excitation of self-exciting vibrations by the impulse system synchronized using the wire motion velocity. The mathematical analysis of the wire motion in the system with the impulse generator, in which the existence of the limiting cycle of the wire natural frequency was proved, is shown in this paper. The computer simulation results, illustrating the metrological possibilities of the solution as well as an example of a physical implementation, are also presented.
