LED-POF-Photodiode as Sensing Elements in High Voltage Environment

WithMarcelo Martins Werneck

This chapter will show some properties of the LED, the plastic optical fiber (POF), and the silicon photodetector when applied as a current sensor. We will study the sensitivity of these properties under temperature variation either individually or when these three components are put together. Additionally, we will show how to use a POF in a high voltage environment.
