Abstract
An analysis of an optical current transducer (OCT) considering in particular the influence of temperature induced variations in the Verdet constant is presented. The analysis is supported by an experimental evaluation of a prototype OCT over a range of operating temperatures and current values and concludes with a laboratory demonstration of a temperature compensation scheme that improves the measurement precision to better than 0.7%.
