This paper introduces a new current and voltage transducer for MV networks which will provide a higher visibility of the operating status of the circuits to which they are connected. The immediate attraction of the system is the ease with which it can be installed both in new builds or retrofitted to existing systems. The unit takes advantage of well-established cable termination technology. It has a voltage connection to the MV circuit at the termination's lug connector and a current transducer mounted around the primary conductor. The paper introduces the basis of the design and details of the interface scheme. It also discusses areas where this unit can provide the foundation for smart distribution networks.
