Applications of current transformers in metering

Current transformers (CTs) are essential components in electrical and power systems for measuring and monitoring current levels. They are designed to step down high currents to a safe and measurable level, typically 5A or 1A, for use in instrumentation, protection, and control systems. Here are some common applications of current transformers:

  • Metering and Billing
  • Protection Relays
  • Power Quality Monitoring
  • Motor Control
  • Energy Management Systems
  • Fault Analysis
  • Ground Fault Detection
  • Power Distribution Monitoring
  • Transformer Protection

Overall, current transformers are essential for accurate current measurement, protection, and control in a wide range of electrical and power system applications, ensuring the safe and efficient operation of electrical infrastructure.
