Answer / sachin lakhe

C.T means Currents transformer which works as normaL
Transformers use to mesure current in primary.
we r using coil to show the current in ratio.

Exa- 400/5 means if primary is 400amps then secondry will be
5amps.

Just we r making suitble current for ameter coil.

Answer / bo

Care must be taken when selecting the Class of CT's. They have to be ordered specifically for their intended purpose. Metering CT's are highly accurate, but will saturate at network fault currents and cause maloperation if inadvertently used for protection.
CT secondary wiring must always have 1 ground connection, this is to prevent a dangerous voltage build up due to capacitive coupling from the Primary voltage which could be thousands of volts. (Ground connection is not required on LV installations below aprox 500V).

Answer / ramesh

It is called as current transformer which is used to
transform higher range of current to lower range. It's
output is used as an input to protection circuit and
mearsuring instruments as the protection circuit and
measuring instruments are designed for lower range of
currents. The secondary of current transformer shall be
connected in such a way that it should be get open under
any circumstances. In case the secondary circuit opens,
then the CT gets blasted due to break down of insulation as
very high voltage gets induced in the secondary.

currents.
Care taken....If ther is metering core then all metering
instrument must be connected in series of S1 & S2
terminal.Same for protection core.
If there is single core CT then whenever its secondery is
not in used it should be shorted.

Answer / sanjeevi

C.T STANDS FOR CURRENT TRANSFORMER USED FOR MEASURING
PURPOSE FROM LOW VALUE TO HIGH VALUE.
WHILE CONNECTING THE C.T SECONDARY WINDING OF THE C.T
SHOULD NOT KEPT OPEN COZ IF SEC OPENS IT WILL DEVELOP HIGH
VOLTAGE.SO HIGH CARE TO BE TAKEN.

Answer / r. anand

CT stands for current transformer. It is nothing but a step-
up transformer used to measure current, the primary of
which have very few turns and the secondary with 1000s of
turn, by this only 1/1000 of the current in the primary
reaches the secondary and so an Ammeter with much lower
value, calibrated to a higher value may be used. The
secondary of a CT should not be left open.
