Wound Primary Current Transformers

General Details
Wound Primary Current Transformers







Wound Primary Current Transformers (CTs) offered in 600v class. These current transformers have high accuracy, and are designed for use with ammeters, watt meters, or for relay driver applications.

Wound Primary Current Transformers have high efficiency and a higher burden capacity than usual current transformers, and are a No Window Type of ct. Ratios from 2.5 to 100 amps Primary are available, with a Secondary of 5 amps ac.

A Current Transformer (CT) is a type of transformer that is used to reduce or multiply an alternating current (AC). It produces a current in its secondary which is proportional to the current in its primary.

Current Transformers, along with voltage or potential transformers, are instrument transformers. Instrument transformers scale the large values of current to small, standardized values that are easy to handle for measuring instruments and protective relays. The Instrument transformers isolate measurement or protection circuits from the high voltage of the primary system. These units provide a secondary current that is accurately proportional to the current flowing in its primary, presenting a negligible load to the primary circuit.

These units are the current sensing units of the power system and are used at generating stations, electrical substations, and in industrial and commercial electric power distribution.

Advantages of Current Transformers are that the units can measure high current easily, high electrical isolation, simple construction, and easy maintenance and installation.

Auxiliary Current Transformers

Auxiliary Current Transformers are designed for connection in the secondary circuit of a main current transformer to change the effective ratio on meters or relays. Auxiliary current transformers are used in protective relaying circuits for a multitude of applications. They are often used to adjust the secondary current to the proper level for the relay using one primary auxiliary CT input winding and one secondary winding feeding the relay.

Summation Current Transformers

Summation current transformers are used to add up secondary currents of multiple main current transformers in order to measure with one instrument only. The output signal is again a standardized signal which is received by adding the input currents and divide the sum by the quantity of inputs.
