Paper Abstract

This paper describes a new type of instrument which is used for on-line measurement of current passing through a lightning eliminator. Due to great magnitude range and extremely short transient process of the current, three sensors are separately designed to detect the current in three different stages. The modulated light signals are transmitted to signal processing circuits through optical fiber. A Microcontroller system with 15 Mkz sampling rate is designed to automatically record the wave form and some important parameters of the current.
