Texas Instruments' reference design shows how to detect current from the mA-to-KA range using a busbar-type shunt resistor. The increasing demand of high-capacity batteries in electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) drives the requirement for larger current spans and highly-accurate current sensors. Obtaining a good accuracy over three decades (mA toA, 1A to 100 A, and 100A to 1000A) is quite challenging due to large amounts of noise in the system.
This design solves this problem by using a high-resolution analogue-to-digital converter (ADC) and high-accuracy current shunt monitors from TI.
