Danisense proprietary Flux-gate DCCT technology is
based on a closed core flux gate detector wound on soft magnetic material.
Although this approach ensures highest performance and best immunity, there are
certain applications in the area of measuring and troubleshooting power systems
where the end-user would rather trade some of the excellent performance for
ease of installations i.e. a split core / clamp-on DCCT which can be put on and
off an existing electrical conductor without breaking the connection first.
by investigating relevant prior-art and competitor approaches to making micro
Flux-Gate sensors (uFG) which could be placed in a slot of a closed magnetic
core or in the air-gap of a gapped magnetic core. You propose approaches for
excitation and sensing of the uFG signals so that satisfactory performance is
achieved. You benchmark the performance of the new uFG approach to Danisense
state-of-the-art FG detector, assess the pros and cons of the former and
propose applications where uFG sensor could bring a significant competitive
