Measure current in circuit
Simscape / Electrical / Specialized Power Systems / Sensors and Measurements
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.
- Output signal
Specifies the format of the output signal when the block is used in a phasor simulation. The Output signal parameter is enabled when the Simulation type parameter of the powergui block is set to
Complex(default) to output the measured current as a complex value. The output is a complex signal.
Real-Imagto output the real and imaginary parts of the measured current. The output is a vector of two elements.
Magnitude-Angleto output the magnitude and angle of the measured current. The output is a vector of two elements.
Magnitudeto output the magnitude of the measured current. The output is a scalar value.
power_currmeasure example uses four Current Measurement blocks to read currents in different branches of a circuit.
