Why current transformers are rated in BURDEN instead of VA?..

Answer / sivaraman

Oh pal the unit of burden itself is VA. it is said as burden
because the load is not desired(like power loss in
terminals,ammeters like that) which may affect the accuracy.
thats why the allowable burden is specified in CTs beyond
which it may lead remarkable inaccuracy.

Answer / kundan malani

bcz they are low rating so the BURDEN instead of VA... and VA depends in voltage and current

Why current transformers are rated in BURDEN instead of VA?..

Answer / anmol

first thing is that the unit of burden is VA. and CT's are rated in BURDEN.
normally ct operate with its secondary terminal short circuited but however loading effect of measuring instrument is seen. this terminated impedance is known as burden.
burden = I*V
= I*(I*R)

Hi Suppose we have a wye/wye transformer which is grounded at both sides,in this situation, do we have ay ground transformer? in other words, ground transformer can do any thing more (while we have nuetral wire in both sides)? As the last question, what about 3rd harmonic? we have two choices: first using wye/delta transformer + ground transformer and second using wye/wye earthed connection.in the former choice, we dont have 3rd harmoonic at the secondary side but what about Yn/yn conection? do we suffer from 3rd harmonic in the Yn/yn connection?
