Inductive and Capacitive Voltage Measurement

WithCipriano Bartoletti, Luca Podestà, Giancarlo Sacerdoti

Capacitive and inductive voltage sensors are mainly utilized in low-frequency electric measurements. In this chapter, the capacitive and inductive measurement with large voltage ranges, from 10−10 to 107 V, has been discussed. The associated voltage waveforms can be periodic or impulsive. In periodic waveforms, it is often important to measure the spectrum and the subharmonic components, which can vary depending on the position of the measuring devices within the same network. In impulsive measurements, obtaining the maximum voltage values, the pulse lengths, etc., is preferred.
