Current Sensor (Three-Phase)

Ideal three-phase current measurement

  • Library:
  • Simscape / Electrical / Sensors & Transducers

  • Current Sensor (Three-Phase) block


The Current Sensor (Three-Phase) block represents an ideal three-phase current sensor. The block measures each of the three currents flowing from port ~1 to port ~2 and outputs a single three-element, physical signal vector. Each element of the physical signal output vector is proportional to the current in its respective phase.


You must connect the Current Sensor (Three-Phase) block in series with a three-phase element. For more information on how to use this block, see Build and Simulate Composite and Expanded Three-Phase Models.
