Title A safe method and an instrument for measuring current intensity in low-voltage cables
Original title Bepieczna metoda i przyrząd do pomiaru natężenia prądu w nieopancerzonych przewodach energetycznych niskiego napięcia [in Polish]
Bibliographic information 1979, Vol.29, No.103, p.331-342. Illus. 1 ref.
Abstract The method described involves the use of a new instrument which can determine the peak load at a transformer station and monitor continuity of current supply. The instrument, which consists of a probe and a millivoltmeter, can be connected to a recorder, and can be used to measure current intensity in cables of any section. The design and operation of this low-cost system (which enhances electrical safety and prevents energy losses) are illustrated by circuits and diagrams.
