The selection of CT Sizing is based on total connected load. If for example a Main CB of 2000 KVA Trafo is 4000 A -- then best selection would be 4000:5 -- this would match also in the Energy Meter (KWH Meter) with 800 as multiplier.

What is a current transformer used for?

A current transformer is an electrical device which is used to transform high current to a lower standardised current for control equipment used to messure current(amps)


What is the difference between current transformer and neutral current transformer?

Current transformer is measured a positive current flow. we used in neutral ct for measure the unbalance load


How is current controlled in welding transformer?

in welding machine, the transformer used is basically a current transforrmer. so by changing the tap of secondary side of transformer, we can increase or decrease the current in the transformer.


Difference between potential transformer and current trasnformer?

The potential transformer is used in the electricity supply industry to measure accurately the voltage being used. The current transformer is basically a step down transformer.


What device can be used to increase current in a DC circuit?

Transformer or instrument transformer. It can increase and decrease current output.


Can you use transformer with your 110 aircon?

A transformer can be used to change the voltage to an appliance. The voltage rating of the transformer should be right for the voltages used, and the current rating of the transformer should not be less than the current drawn by the equipment.


Can a transformer operate on direct current?

No it can not used


What type of transformer connection can be used when it is necessary to rectify alternating current into direct current with a minimum of ripple?

bride transformer


Can a current transformer be used for current amplify?

transformers cannot amplify!


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 saturation. Only alternating current will transfer power through a transformer.


What is the difference between a transformer and a rectifer?

A transformer is used to change the value of a voltage applied to the transformer's primary winding to a different voltage value taken from the transformers secondary winding. A rectifier is used to change an alternating current value to a direct current value.


What can be used to change the voltage of an alternating current?

A transformer


What is the difference between power transformer and instrument transformer?

A power transformer is used to provide power (to your home, for example), an instrument transformer is used to measure voltage or current (for metering, for example).


What is the reason for using a neutral current transformer on a transformer?

A current transformer is primarily used at the neutral point of a transformer for earth fault protection. A neutral current transformer will measure any ground fault current which will essentially flow from the star point of the transformer. A fault-detection device other devices is connected to the current transformer and, if the fault current exceeds a certain trigger value, the fault-detection device will give a trip command to an earth-fault relay to disconnect the supply of electricity to the transformer.


Why transformer can not be used in dc supply?

The transformer cannot be used in the DC supply because it keeps on alternating its current, whereas the DC supply current should be constant.


What is the used of conductors in a transformer?

Without conductors, no current could flow -an essential requirement of a transformer!


What is the purpose of constant voltage transformer?

The term 'constant voltage transformer' is used to differentiate the operation of transformers that are intended to change voltage levels, from those intended to change current levels -a current transformer (CT), for example, is termed a 'constant current transformer'.


Why no load current in transformer small?

No load current is energizing current. This is effectively "lost" power, power used in the transformer to energize the core. It, therefore, should be small!


How current transfomer is step up voltage transformer n step down current transformer?

Current transformers are not voltage transformers. Current transformer are used for metering or protection purposes, with single turn primary. Generally the secondary current is either 1Amps or 5Amps.


Why is the neutral current transformer?

A current transformer is primarily used at the neutral point of a transformer for earth fault protection. A neutral current transformer will measure any ground fault current which will essentially flow from the star point of the transformer. A fault-detection device other devices is connected to the current transformer and, if the fault current exceeds a certain trigger value, the fault-detection device will give a trip command to an earth-fault relay to disconnect the supply of electricity to the transformer.


Is current transformer is a distribution transformer?

In transmission lines there is a massive current, we use CT to make this current measurable i.e. it steps down the current but DT is used to step down the voltage


What is transformer turns ratio excitation current?

The transformer turns ratio meters is used to measure the excitation current. The excitation current is a magnetic field that is created from electric currents.


What is a curect transformer?

A 'current transformer' is a type of transformer which, together with a 'voltage transformer' (or 'potential transformer' in N America), is classified as being an 'instrument transformer'. It is used to reduce large currents to smaller currents which can be measured safely, and to isolate the primary circuit from the secondary circuit for the purposes of safety. Current transformers are also used to drive protective relays used in high-voltage protection systems.
