Current Sensor

Current sensor in electrical systems


Electrical Sensors


The Current Sensor block represents an ideal current sensor, that is, a device that converts current measured in any electrical branch into a physical signal proportional to the current.

Connections + and – are electrical conserving ports through which the sensor is inserted into the circuit. Connection I is a physical signal port that outputs the measurement result.


The block has the following ports:


Electrical conserving port associated with the sensor positive terminal.


Electrical conserving port associated with the sensor negative terminal.


Physical signal output port for current.

Introduced in R2007a
