Current Transformer Testers

Current Transformer Tester

APPLICATION AND BRIEF DESCRIPTION

The CTS-1 Test System is designed for a precise verification of the basic parameters – ratio and phase shift – of all types of current transformers according to the requirements of IEC 44-1/1996 standard. The Test System generates current up to 2400 A for the primary of the current transformer under test. A Z-burden with selectable value is provided for the secondary of the current transformer. By means of the CTS-1 system demagnetization of the current transformer under test can be performed.

The system operates under computer control (Windows XP or later). The software works in manual or a fully automatic mode of operation with the preliminarily set parameters. The measurement results can be saved in a database and printed. The operator can search and sort the results by ID, location and date.



The system is offered in modules, which can be fixed on a carriage, which makes it useful for both laboratory and on site measurements. The CTS-1 Test System consists of four basic modules:

  • Programmable current generator from 1 A to 2400 A;
  • Standard instrument (class 0.05) for measurement of current transformer parameters;
  • Compensated standard current transformer class 0.01 with sub-ranges;
  • Z-burden – for loading of the secondary of the current transformer
