Paper Abstract

An optical fibre current measurement device has been used to monitor currents up to about 14 kA from a 500 MW set at Fawley Generating Station. The device performance has been satisfactory and been unaffected by vibration and local temperature variations. The output of the device has remained within 2% of the output of the conventional current measurement equipment for long periods and for periods of one hour agreement to within 0.6% is typical.
