Keywords:AC voltages  difference amplifier  voltage divider  high voltage measurement system 

Circuit lets designers avoid linearity errors caused by self-heating in traditional difference amplifier designs. The article proposes a design in measuring high AC voltages that doesn't consume heat. The design uses a difference amplifier as an aid to the voltage divider.

The article also shows a comparison between the resistive dividers and the new high voltage measurement system and the drawbacks that the former has including errors, drifts and offsets.
