Paper Abstract

Multi-Sensor system has been proposed to measure electric current in a non-contact way. According to the Ampere's Law, the value of the current flowing in a conductor can be obtained through processing the outputs of the magnetic sensors around the conductor. As the discrete form of the Ampere's Law is applied, measurement noises are introduced when there exists the interference magnetic field induced by nearby current flowing conductors. In this paper, the measurement noises of the multi-sensor system measuring DC current are examined to reveal the impact of the interference magnetic field and the number of the magnetic sensors on the measurement accuracy. A noise reduction method based on Kalman filtering is presented. Computer simulation and experiment results show that the method greatly improves the accuracy without seriously increasing the computation load in comparison with other approaches.
