Why the CT Secondary is rated as 5A generally?..

Answer / iamdon

CT is used mainly for Instrumentation(Measurement and
protection system) purposes that is why it is also termed as
instrument transformer.The measuring and protecting devices
are not rated to sustain high currents.What a CT does is,
it lowers the current in secondary side so that measurement
as well protection can be done at a reduced level of

The digit in CT ratio of secondary side is IS standard for
rated secondary current so that uniformity among manufactures
be established.
The various values of secondary currents are
1)in the range of 0-5 amp e.g, 1A,5A
2)in the order of mA(particularly 40mA)in case of digital
devices for measurements and protection.

This is reqd for a 1MW Solar power plant..We have 2DC outputs from the solar panels Connected to 2INVERTOR panels.. Output from invertor is 3ph,280v,500kva,50hz.These are connected to individual ACB.This has to be stepped up to 11KV ,1250KVA SYSTEM.Now can I use (1) one more ACBTO GIVE A COMBINED OUTPUT OF 1000KVA,280V & STEP UP THE OUTPUT BY USING a single two winding 3 ph transformer 11kv/1250kva. or (2)use the two outputs and connect to one three winding transformer of above rating..Pls suggestwith details.
