Power transformer, Distribution Transformer. Current Transformer, Potential Transformer, Auto Transformer etc.
Current transformer are used for measuring current in a bus bar without disconnecting it by means of ammeter.There are three types
1.bar type current transformer
2.toroidal current transformer
3.wound type current transformer

What is a current transformer?

A current transformer (CT) is used for measurement of alternatingelectric currents. Current transformers, together with voltage (orpotential) transformers (VT or PT), are know

What types of current transformer?

CURRENT TRANSFORMERS ARE BROADLY CLASSIFIED AS . RING TYPE CTs : A CT which has an opening in the center to accommodate a primary conductor (busbar or cable) through it. .

What is the difference between dead tank type and live tank type current transformer?

The enclosure that houses winding in other words the tank is at line potential while in the other case it is at earth potential. it is the same in case of circuit breakers too

What type of current must be used with a transformer?

DC current cannot be used in a transformer only AC will work. A transformer needs the continual build and collapse of the magnetic field to keep the iron core from reaching sa

What type of current is produced in a generator?

Generators produce alternating current (AC). The smaller ones generate single phase AC, but any larger one on the power grid will generate 3-phase AC. There are some DC (direc

What is a current of transformers?

The current rating of transformers vary widely as well as the types (step-down, etc.....). So depending on the use, the primary power, and the secondary power, the amp load wi

What type of current does a generator produce for mains electricity?

In the United States ll0-l20 Volts AC- 60 hertz or cycles per second ( rate of alternation). ll0 volts was standardized- originally DC as far back as l895 by Con Ed Power and
