Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design parameters and construction of current sensor based on printed circuit board (PCB) coil. This sensor is contactless and can be used in remote conductors at high potentials. This sensor doesn't have iron core (unlike current transformer) so there is no non-linearity over a very wide measurement range. Unlike a shunt resistor, this sensor provides galvanic isolation and produces no heating.
