Current Measurement

Measure current in circuit

Library

Measurements

Description

The Current Measurement block is used to measure the instantaneous current flowing in any electrical block or connection line. The Simulink® output provides a Simulink signal that can be used by other Simulink blocks.

Dialog Box and Parameters

Output signal

Specifies the format of the output signal when the block is used in a phasor simulation. The Output signal parameter is disabled when the block is not used in a phasor simulation. The phasor simulation is activated by a Powergui block placed in the model.

Set to Complex to output the measured current as a complex value. The output is a complex signal.

Set to Real-Imag to output the real and imaginary parts of the measured current. The output is a vector of two elements.

Set to Magnitude-Angle to output the magnitude and angle of the measured current. The output is a vector of two elements.

Set to Magnitude to output the magnitude of the measured current. The output is a scalar value.

Example

The power_currmeasurepower_currmeasure example uses four Current Measurement blocks to read currents in different branches of a circuit. The two scopes display the same current.
