Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

This work reports on the research and development of an optical current sensor for harmonic analysis within the electricity supply network. The device has a measurement capability, limited by the sampling frequency of the A/D converter, to around 20 kHz. We report on experimental verification of these measurements up to the 80th harmonic (4 kHz).
