Abstract

We have made a preliminary study on a possibility to build a device, which could measure three-phase alternating current at a distance. This report gives a brief look at the theoretical background related with such a device and derives several mathematical results associated with the theory and the structure of the device. Our results suggest that such a device can be built, assuming the distances between the three current-carrying wires and the two sensors of the device are known accurately enough. There are ways to measure these distances, but this article does not concentrate on them.
