Development of non-conventional instrument transformers (NCIT) using smart materials

Nikolić, B., Khan, S.H. and Gabdullin, N. (2016). Development of non-conventional instrument transformers (NCIT) using smart materials. Journal of Physics: Conference Series, 772(1), 012065.. doi: 10.1088/1742-6596/772/1/012065

Abstract

In this paper is presented a novel approach for current measurement using smart materials, magnetic shape memory (MSM) alloys. Their shape change can be controlled by the application of magnetic field or mechanical stress. This gives the possibility to measure currents by correlating the magnetic field produced by the current, shape change in an MSM- based sensor and the voltage output of a Linear Variable Differential Transducer (LVDT) actuated by this shape change. In the first part of the paper is presented a review of existing current measurement sensors by comparing their properties and highlighting their advantages and disadvantages.
