Paper Abstract

An architecture based on the Faraday effect to minimize the crosstalk effect in optical current sensors (OCSs) is proposed. It was demonstrated that the magnetic field integral along a discrete loop can meet Ampere’s law under certain conditions, and the mathematical model of zero-sum points was given. Based on it, a zero-sum OCS (ZOCS) was proposed, which consists of several OCSs forming a symmetrical discrete loop. Ideally, the currents that flow outside the ZOCS do not contribute to the measurement of the currents inside it. The experimental results showed that the magnetic crosstalk-induced errors of ZOCS were less than 0.2%, and the influence of external current was reduced one order compared with conventional OCSs.
