7. A device for measuring the voltage of at least one conductor of an electric power cable comprising:
an enclosure of a conductive material intended to be arranged around a portion of the cable and at least one electric field sensor intended to be arranged between the enclosure and the cable;
a source of a constant potential connected to the enclosure; and
a processing unit capable of determining said voltage based on the comparison of a measured electric field obtained with the electric field sensor with simulated electric fields produced by the electric field sensor, for a plurality of configurations of point electric charges within the cable.
