Abstract : Precise measurement of current flowing through individual conductors of redundantly connected circuits is usually a difficult task. A simple method of making such measurements on solar cell panels has been developed using a magnetic tape recorder head. This method permits measurement accuracy to better than 5 percent. (Author)
