Measure current in circuit
Simscape / Electrical / Specialized Power Systems / Fundamental Blocks / 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.
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.
Complex (default) to output the measured current as a complex value. The output is a complex signal.
Real-Imag to output the real and imaginary parts of the measured current. The output is a vector of two elements.
Magnitude-Angle to output the magnitude and angle of the measured current. The output is a vector of two elements.
Magnitude to 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.
