Micro Flux-Gate sensor for gapped magnetic cores used in DCCT


Companies / Organizations


Greater Copenhagen area


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.



You start 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 advantage.

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.
