AbstractThe development of a computer-controlled current-comparator-based calibration system to determine the current ratio errors of high-voltage conventional and nonconventional current transformers (CTs) under actual operating conditions of high-voltage and distorted current waveforms up to 100 kV and 2000 A is described. The ratio errors of a CT are affected by the applied high voltage due to capacitive currents flowing in its winding. The errors are also affected by the phase angle of the primary currents with respect to the operating high voltage. Therefore, the new calibration system allows the phase angle of the test primary currents to be adjusted at power factors of zero lag through unity to zero lead. The uncertainty k = 2 of the new calibration system is estimated to be not more than 20 × 10-6 for both the in-phase and quadrature components of the measured ratio errors. © 2006 IEEE.
