current transformer testing

Testing of current transformer

Electrical Technology

Electrical TechnologyCurrent transformers are generally used to measure currents of high magnitude. These transformers step down the current to be measured, so that it can be measured with a normal range ammeter. A Current transformer has only one or very few number of primary turns. The primary winding may be just a conductor or a…
