Fault current includes a dc component, or offset, that makes the current asymmetrical. L/R = 100 ms X/R = 37.7

Secondary Current Observations Secondary current is distorted due to the core flux saturation Secondary current distorts after a short time (time-to-saturation) Distortion slowly dissipates as primary dc offset decays

Remanent Flux Trapped magnetic flux in core if a previous offset current is interrupted before reaching a symmetrical state High X/R ratios make remanent flux more likely due to the slow decay rates of offset current

CT Classification

CT Accuracy Class ANSI defines accuracy rating classes by a letter and number C100, C800 or T100, etc. Letter designates how the accuracy can be determined Number designates the minimum secondary terminal voltage under a standard burden

24

Accuracy Class Letter C means by Calculation non-gapped cores with negligible leakage flux, such as bushing cts

T means by Test cts with leakage flux, such as cts with wound primaries

Old classes H and LH T and L C

Accuracy Class Number Minimum secondary terminal voltage produced at 20 times rated current into a standard burden without exceeding a 10% ratio correction factor

25

What is a Standard Burden? IEEE Standard Requirements for Instrument Transformers C57.13-1993 the standard relaying burdens are 1, 2, 4 and 8 ohms at a lagging 0.5 p.f. 20 times rated secondary current of 5 A is 100 A, and 100 A times the standard burdens yield C ratings of 100, 200, 400 and 800 V

26

Knee Point Definitions Point A is the ANSI knee point voltage point tangent to 45 degree slope line

Point B is the IEC knee point where a 10% increase in voltage causes a 50 % increase in current

IEC knee point is higher than ANSI knee point

CT Excitation Impedance Excitation curve represents the exciting impedance in terms of voltage and current The ANSI knee point (A) represents the point of maximum permeability of the iron core

27

Examples Determine Accuracy Class Selecting CT Ratings Calculating Time to Saturation

Example - Find Accuracy Class Find the approximate ct accuracy class from the excitation curve the C class is defined for a 10% ratio correction factor at 20 times rated current 10% of (20 X 5 A) is 10 A for IE = 10 A, use the excitation curve to find VS as about 500 V

next find the ct terminal voltage by subtracting the internal voltage drop from VS (continued)

28

Example - Equivalent CircuitIP VS = 500 IS = 100 A IE = 10 A VB = ? ZB

Example - continued VB (voltage to the burden)VB = VS - (IS X RS) VB = 500 - (100 X 0.61) VB = 439 V

The approximate ct accuracy class is the next lowest ANSI class number (C400)

29

Examples Determine Accuracy Class Selecting CT Ratings Calculating Time to Saturation

Avoiding CT SaturationVX > IS ZTB (1 + X/R)VX = saturation voltage IS = secondary current ZTB = total ct secondary burden

30

CTs for Generator Differentials For generators, typically cts cannot be sized to avoid saturation because of: high fault current high X/R ratio

Common applications would: select adequate ct primary rating select highest practical C class match manufacturer and types of cts
