Current Transformer Presentation
|Current Transformer Basics|
|A current transformer (CT) is a device used to measure alternating current (AC) in electrical systems.|
It consists of a primary winding and a secondary winding, with the primary winding connected in series with the current to be measured.
The secondary winding provides a reduced current proportional to the primary current, which can be further measured or used for control and protection purposes.
|Applications and Advantages of Current Transformers|
|Current transformers are widely used in power transmission and distribution systems to measure and monitor currents in high voltage lines.|
They are also used in industrial settings to measure currents in various equipment, such as motors, generators, and transformers.
Current transformers offer several advantages, including high accuracy, ability to withstand high currents and overloads, and galvanic isolation between primary and secondary circuits for safety.
