Accurate magnetic field sensor and method for wireless phasor measurement unit
MetadataShow full item record
A phasor measurement unit and method including a transducer for transduction measurement of an electrical characteristic of a current carrying element in electrical power generation or distribution systems, the transducer generating a transducer output signal representative of the electrical characteristic; an amplifier receiving the transducer output signal and generating an amplifier output signal; a filter receiving the amplifier output signal, low pass filtering the amplifier output signal, and generating a filter output signal; an analog to digital converter receiving the filter output signal and generating a digital output signal; and a processor receiving the digital output signal, calculating phasor data from the digital output signal and generating a data output signal, wherein the calculated phasor data is at least as accurate as phasor data from a phasor measurement unit or a frequency data recorder having a transducer for nontransduction measurement of the same electrical characteristic.
