Using an Ammeter as a Shunt

Moving coil ammeters are not made to take currents of more than a few milliamperes. If it were required for one to measure much larger currents the coil would have to be wound with much thicker wire, making the instrument heavy and clumsy. We can measure higher currents by putting a resistance in parallel with the ammeter. The resistance of the resistor is selected to be much higher than the resistance of the ammeter so only a small part of the current will pass through the ammeter. A resistance used in this way is called a shunt.

Suppose a milliameter of resistanceand full scale deflectionis to be used to measure currents up toSince the ammeter can only passthe shunt must take

Let the resistance of the shunt beSince the shunt is in parallel with the ammeter, there will be the same potential difference across both.

For the ammeter

For the resistor

When the shunt is in use the ammeter readings are multiplied by 100.

Many ammeters now come with a selection of shunts inside the case, and a switch to change between them. This makes it easy to read different ranges of currents.
