Current Measurement

Current Measurement

Current can be measured by adding a ammeter in path of electrical circuit.

In above example to measure current we have cut the wire and pass through the Ammeter. In ammeter current sensor/Shunt is used to measure current.

Right image show the probes position in current measurement. In current measurement ideal multimeter or ammeter acts as short circuit means no voltage drop occurs across connected probes.
