    This paper provides a thorough review of state-ofthe-art current sensing techniques. It catalogues the currentsensors according to the underlying physical principle in order topoint out their strengths and weaknesses.New current sensing principles based on either establishedtechniques such as Hall-effect sensors and fluxgate principlesor emerging technologies such as magneto resistance effect andfiber-optical techniques provide attractive alternatives for current sensing, although generally at a higher price than traditional techniques like shunt resistors.
