|The current transformer
||This is a helpful content on different types of current transformers and their working principle. But prior to the using of this blog for transformer designing process, it will be good to go for well established electronics sources.
|The Current Transformer
||A helpful blog post detailing some of the underlying theory and equations used in making current transformers. It may be wise to use this as a baseline reference - but equations should be verified & cited from an EMAG or power electronics book.
|Current Transformer - Definition, Principle, Equivalent Circuit, Errors, and Types
||Another blog-like post about general current transformers. One of the most useful things to get from this work is the phasor analysis of a current transformer.
|How to build very low cost current transformer?
||This is a stack exchange post about making current transformers. Some pretty good breakdowns in the responses. Once again all of the work should be verified against a reputable source.
||In this blog post, he makes a watt meter, and most notably winds the current transformer by hand. Something important to note is in his measurements he does not note any of the phase angle compensation - which is something I will have to characterize for my current transformers.
|How do I design a current transformer?
||Another Stack exchange post about making CTs. Good listing of mathematics & variables used in designing CT.
|Current Sensing Theory
||Contains a good reference on CTs vs Hall effect Current sensing.
|A Current Transformer Model Based on the Jiles–Atherton Theory of Ferromagnetic Hysteresis
||Looks like a fancy way to model CTs mathematically. Likely an unnecessarily high level for this project. Don't think simulation will be necessary.
|An Efficient Compensation Algorithm for Current Transformer Saturation Effects
||This looks like a pretty good paper that details recognizing CT saturation and methods to compensate. Though I won't be looking at the specific algorithms in this paper - recognizing the saturation point may be an important point for device characterization.
|High-Current High-Precision Openable-Core AC and AC/DC Current Transformers
||They go into analysis about air gap transformers --- something that may be pretty transferable to the kind of analysis that I'll do for my transformers.
|Calibration of Current Transformers in distorted conditions
||Analysis of CTs in distortion -- may be a good to set of tests to put our transformers under to characterize their robustness.
|Transformer and Inductor Design Handbook
||This website doesn't work very well - might be sketchy. But also a design handbook would be helpful
|Self-Contained Wireless Hall Current Sensor Applied for Two-Wire Zip-Cords
||This paper details a custom current transformer that actually is made to harvest power to run the wireless measurement circuit. This is a good idea and potentially worth applying to later iterations.
|Electromagnetics for Engineers: With Applications to Digital Systems and Electromagnetic Interference
||This is a book on E-Mag with good solid references on Transformers.
|Power System Analysis Third Edition
||This is a book on Power Systems - and could also be used as a reference for phase angle analysis & transformer parameter specification.
|Dual drive coils design for a long stroke electromagnetically actuated micro-positioning system
||Embedding coils in circuit boards essentially
|Cylindrical halbach magnet array for electromagnetic vibration energy harvesters
||Just a potential application of this system
|Design, Fabrication, and Analysis of a Coil Assembly for a Multistage Induction-Type Coilgun System
||Another application - albeit too large for our specific system
|Current Transformer Circuits for Power Electronics Applications
||A doctoral thesis on using CTs for high frequency Power electronics switching. It goes through a lot of theory about CTs and may prove to be an invaluable resource.
