A calibration method for a commercial coaxial shunt at high pulse current

This paper describes a method to calibrate a commercial coaxial shunt resistor with 0.07% of standard uncertainty at 1200 A, 0.5 ms pulse width current. In the method, a special current shunt is used as the new working standard in Measurement Standards Center (MSC) of Agilent Technologies International Japan. The shunt was designed for currents up to 1500 A… CONTINUE READING
