Title: Sensors with Intelligent Measurement Platform and Low-cost Equipment (SIMPLE) – Performance Characterization

Abstract

Design and performance of a digital signal processing platform for enhancing off-the-shelf voltage and current sensors are presented. The platform was developed for enabling advanced distribution grid applications with existing low-cost sensors. This digital sensor system leverages a variety of off-the-shelf voltage and current sensing technologies, analog-to-digital conversion, and sensor correction algorithms to yield more accurate and reliable digital measurements that support a multitude of applications and use cases. Sample performance and accuracy results are provided, including measurements at power frequency and higher harmonics. The system extends the native performance of the medium voltage sensors used in the system, for example, broadening measurement bandwidth beyond a few kHz, appropriate for measuring switching surges and harmonics on medium voltage distribution systems. The digital sensor system is installed and characterized in the field with a high-bandwidth optical calibration system to determine site-dependent calibration and performance issues.
