what are some applications of CBCT – core balance current transformers?
Core-balance current transformers (CBCTs) are specialized devices used in electrical power systems to measure fault currents and provide protection against ground faults. Here are some common applications of CBCTs:
- Ground Fault Protection
- Residual Current Monitoring
- Equipment Ground Fault Detection
- Ground Fault Location
- Ground Fault Monitoring in Renewable Energy Systems
They are often used in conjunction with Earth leakage relays or ELRS to monitor and control the tripping point based on the set reaction time.
