Special current transformer (CT) is designed to induct power from the power transmission lines for an inspection robot. Equivalent circuit is used for calculating and modelling the parameters of the current transformer. Air gap analysis is given aiming at adapting dynamic range of bar current, and calculation of the effect of air gap is provided in detail. Ratio change of current transformer is introduced by which the secondary current could be adaptive to the bus current. Simulation results show that dynamic control of length of air gap and turns of the coils could make the current transformer be adaptive to the variable bus current and be more convenient for inducing power for the power transmission lines inspection robot. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
