Why CT secondary should not left open??????????

Answer Posted / iamdon

The CT secondary should not be left opened secondary due to
following reasons:

1)Zero current in secondary leads zero back emf.So primary
current becomes very high.Large heat generated may burn the
winding and core.If the transformer sustain this heat, even
then its operation becomes improper as explained below.

2)CT is bascially a step up transformer.So high voltage
induced in secondary may saturate the core (core becomes
permanently damaged).So the operating point advances in non
linear region,which makes the transformer operation improper
(secomdary current will not replicate the primary according
to the turn ratio).

3)High voltage induced in secondary side may endanger the
life of personnel working on the side.

I have a small system with two motors that are running on 380 vac, 60 hz. These motors are expensive and I usally get them from Brazil. I am adding another motor to the system, but I want to purchase a 480 vac, 60 hz motor to use. It will be on a VFD that is rated fro 380 thru 480. Is this posible and will I have to use a larger motor and derate it?
