Clamp-on Split-core DCCT

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Background

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.

 

Objective

You start by learning the principles of Danisense proprietary Zero-flux Flux-gate DCCT technology and finding out how its building principles positively affect the transducer performance with respect to accuracy, drift, immunity against external magnetic fields etc. With this background in mind you start on a journey for finding ways to open the magnetic core and windings of the DCCT and make it possible to mount the DCCT in existing installations without breaking any connection. You calculate, simulate and finally build prototypes to test the performance of the invented approaches, while benchmarking the results to Danisense state-of-the-art DCCTs. You present the results to the Danisense team and with your experience you will influence the decision about the technology direction for future clamp-on DCCT products.

Requirements

University students with background in electrical engineering in their final semester, having the necessary knowledge and interest in magnetics and signal processing by electronics.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
