Paper Abstract

A new topology for an openable Faraday current sensor is presented with a demonstrated resolution of 7.2 mA/(root)Hz over a measurement range from 1 to 1500 Amp. The sensitivity of the system was 2.21 X 10-5 rad/A. Since this sensor is fabricated in an `openable' form emulating a conventional current clamp, it can be used either in permanent installations or for short term diagnostic studies.
