  • Current Measurement block

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.

Parameters

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 Phasor or Discrete phasor.

Set to Complex (default) 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.

Examples

The power_currmeasure example uses four Current Measurement blocks to read currents in different branches of a circuit.
