Paper Abstract

Existing prototype optical current transformers are reviewed and their design as well as their functional characteristics are analyzed in the light of the practical requirements dictated by operating conditions in an extra-high-voltage (EHV) switchyard. A perspective of the development of a new magneto-optic current transformer is explored. The feasibility of such apparatus depends on technological progress in manufacturing mono-mode optical fibers which will not depolarize the transmitted light.
