One of the two input channels measures the battery current IBAT via the voltage drop at the external shunt resistor.
Similarly, the shunt resistor values at the driver and along the primary signal path are sufficiently high that we consider them to be opens, and thus remove them from the circuit.
This is required to reduce the AC current magnitude into the shunt resistor path so that DC current can be measured with a clamp-on ammeter or a voltmeter connected across the known shunt resistor[3].
1 transceiver with signal-processing circuitry in a single package, the AS8515 provides a complete current and voltage measurement system that only requires the addition of a simple microcontroller and, for current measurement, a precision shunt resistor.
Fault protection using desaturation detection is more suitable for power modules from 150A than using a shunt resistor.
The ZMM-01 simplifies working with ZigBee Smart Energy - implementing a complete ZigBee SE smart meter now only requires the addition of a shunt resistor and current transformer (CT).
Single-phase electric current flows through the supply wire which cause voltage decrease in shunt resistor.
TI's INA250 integrates the shunt resistor with a bi-directional, zero-drift current-sense amplifier to support both low-side and high-side implementations.
The PGIA gain programmability allows the system to set the battery charge/discharge current to any of four values using the same shunt resistor.
This enables the use of shunt resistor sensing elements instead of current transformers (CTs), thereby providing immunity to magnetic field interference and tampering.
Measuring current across a shunt resistor in one channel over a range from a few milliamps up to 1kA, it provides a digital output via a serial peripheral interface.
Detection is enabled for 4-6 cells, and the shunt resistor method is used to achieve simple cell balancing operation, making self-contained operation possible and reducing design load considerably.
