Rogowski coil (RC) is a low-cost, air-cored, and flexible induction sensor for nonintrusive condition monitoring and thus can be used in a variety of applications. In this paper, a lumped parameter model of RC is presented and an experiment-based methodology is developed to determine its parameters. The performance of the RC is analyzed for detection and measurement of high-frequency (pulsed) signals such as partial discharge (PD) current pulses. A simple and efficient technique of numerical integration is adopted to avoid the conventional type of expensive and complex design analogue integrators. RC is modeled and simulated in the alternative transient program-electromagnetic transient program environment. The designed coil is tested to measure PDs in the laboratory. Simulated and experimental performance of RC is compared with a high-frequency current transformer. This comparison shows a good match and, hence, validates the design of RC for PD applications.
