Optical Current Transformer is a sensor which directly or indirectly use optical sensing to measure electric currents. It generally measures current by means of Faraday Effect. There are different features of optical current transformer such as environment friendly insulation system, no magnetic losses, single fiber cable instead of several copper cables, no electric component with the OCT and wide dynamic range.
Optical current transformer are available in two different types that are magneto optical current transformer and fiber optical current transformer. Among these, magneto optical current transformer is highly preferred due to its innovative features and benefits regarding regulations. Additionally, optical current transformer can be used in various applications such as substations, electric applications, power system and instrumentation, modern electric meter and transmission line to measure electric currents.
