Abstract : A current transformer and copper sulfate water resistor are combined to provide a probe capable of measuring very fast, high voltage pulses. The resistor is connected in series with the primary winding of the current transformer and consists of an elongated plastic tube filled with an aqueous solution of copper sulfate. The series arrangement of resistor and current transformer primary winding is applied across the source of voltage to the measured and the current transformer secondary winding output is a function of the measured voltage. The current transformer secondary output is applied to and displayed on an oscilloscope.
