The Pulse Electronics current sensor used in the study was the PA2999.006NL, which has now been replaced with the improved PA3202NL. The coil winding technique is implemented in this highly automatable, low-cost standard product which is lightweight and, due to the Rogowski coil as a voltage source, is a zero power-consumption device with a stable voltage over a wide temperature range. The Pulse current sensor was developed as an alternative to the current transformer typically used in metering applications.The STPMxx is a family of energy metering ASSPs (application specific standard products) designed to address a wide range of electricity metering requirements thanks to built-in features including signal conditioning, signal processing, data conversion, input/output signals, and voltage reference. These devices are designed for effective measurement of active, reactive, and apparent energy in a single- or poly-phase system using Rogowski coil-based sensors, current transformers, or shunt sensors, and can be implemented as a single-chip energy meter or as a peripheral measurement system in a microcontroller-based energy meter. The application note is available on the Pulse Electronics website at: http://www.pulseelectronics.com/sidewinder-p The datasheet for the Pulse Electronics PA3202NL sensor can be found at: http://productfinder.pulseeng.com/product/PA3202NL The STPMxx family information is at: http://www.st.com/stonline/stappl/productcatalog/app?page=productSelector&search=stpm * The Rogowski coil principle states that an conductor carrying an AC current i(t) and passing through a helical coil, induces a voltage across the coil that is proportional to the rate of change of the current (di/dt) in the conductor.
