Example 1:

A 1200/5, C400 CT with excitation curves shown on above figure, is connected to a
2.0 burden. Based on the accuracy classification, what is the maximum symmetrical
fault current that may be applied to this CT without exceeding a 10% ratio error?

Based on the criteria that the CT can deliver 20 times rated secondary current
without exceeding a 10% ratio error, the maximum fault current will be 24000A.
However, with a 2.0 burden, this will result in a voltage below the knee point of the CT
and, as a practical matter, it will be within 10% accuracy at higher currents. This can only
be accurately determined from excitation or ratio correction curves and not from the
accuracy classification. For example, a CT with characteristics shown in above figure
will produce between 180-240A without exceeding the 10% ratio error, depending on the
power factor of the 2.0 burden.

Example 2:

A 1200/5, C400 CT is connected on the 1000/5 tap. What is the maximum secondary
burden that can be used and still maintain rated accuracy at 20 times rated symmetrical
secondary current?

Since the secondary voltage capability is directly proportional to the connected tap, the
CT will support a voltage of 1000/1200400V or 333V. Twenty times the rated
secondary current is 100A. Therefore, the maximum burden is 333V/100A or 3.33

Example 3:

Assume that secondary burden in a relay circuit is 5. The relay setting is 2A and the CT
ratio is 300/5. Using above figure, calculate the primary current required to operate the
relay?

CT saturation and DC- offset current

Role of DC off-set current

Typically fault current consists a symmetrical ac component and a dc offset current. To
understand this concept, consider a transmission line unloaded exited by an equivalent voltage
source. The fault strikes at time
0
t t = .
This can be simulated by closing the switch at
1
t t =

L j R e + or u Z Z models the line impedance. The fault current in the line is given by

Where is the time constant of the line =L/R. The fault current has two components in
it. The first component models the steady state sinusoidal ac response while the second current
is the dc offset current due to the presence of inductive component in the circuit. Recall that
current in an inductance can not change instantaneously. As t , the instantaneous dc
current, a consequence of maintaining initial condition ) ( ) (
0 0
+
= t i t i , decays exponentially to
zero and the current reaches the ac steady state values. While the dc offset current, would in
6
theory persist till infinity, its trace in the actual wave form would not be seen beyond a certain
time constants. Table-I illustrates the values of

It is more or less obvious that, dc offset is not seen in the waveform after 5 time constants.

sec = 5msec, the severity of dc offset current would equal

, which is also the
peak value of symmetrical ac component of the current. This leads us to an important

conclusion. Viz. peak value
1) dc offset current can be as high as the symmetrical ac peak
2) The dc offset current can be positive or negative (see fig2)
3) Dc offset current may be totally absent
eg. If u = , 0
0
= t
4) While, in above analysis, we have considered a single phase current, a 3| fault on a 3|
transmission line would always induce dc offset current in atleast 2 phases.

In the remaining lecture, we analyze the effect of dc offset current on CT performance.

DC- offset current and CT saturation
8

We now plan to show that CT can saturate on dc offset current. Also, we plan to show
that the resulting distortions in the CT secondary current can be un-acceptably high. While
doing this analysis, we will neglect ac symmetrical component. In other words, we rest our
belief in superposition theorem atleast qualitatively and will finally evaluate effect using it
Notice that the current that we are dealing with is non-linear, a rigorous application of super
position theorem is simply out of question.

First consider an ideal CT excited by the dc offset current source. An ideal CT will faithfully
replicates primary current waveform on the secondary side. Hence, the secondary current
would be given by

Note that unlike ac voltage induced flux, which is sinusoidal, this flux is unidirectional. The ac
voltage induced flux has zero average value. However, dc offset induced does not have this
nice feature. The total flux in ideal CT core is a summation of ac flux and dc flux.
The ac flux in the CT core can be obtained by substituting operator

In practice, if this flux exceeds the knee-point flux in the core (see fig.), then the CT core
will saturate.
11

As a consequence of CT core saturation, the secondary current would not faithfully replicate
the primary current. Infact, in practice it is observed that CT secondary current is clipped. The
clipping of CT current leads to blinding of the relay which cannot function further. Hence,
CT saturation in presence of dc offset current is a serious problem which relay designers have
to face. Note that dc flux accumulates gradually. (Depends upon the transmission line time
constant (t ). It is apparent that saturation should not occur immediately after the inception of
the fault. Thus, if the relay is fast enough in decision making, it is likely that a relaying
decision would be undertaken before the CT fully saturates. This is another important reason
for increasing the speed of relaying system. For bus-fault protection, where the dc saturation
due to dc offset current can be a significant contributing factor, quarter cycle operations *****
specifically are imposed. Similarly, a distance relay is expected to operate within -1 cycle
time.
CT oversizing factors

Typically, an efficient design of transformer would correspond to choosing the core
cross section such that
ac

| should be near the knee point of B-H curve. One obvious way of
avoiding the CT saturation on dc flux is to oversize the core so that for flux ) (

corresponding B is below the knee-point. Hence, the factor

Note that X/R in above equation is the transmission line X/R ratio. For a 220KV line X/R~10.
This would imply that transformer core should be oversized by a factor of 11. For a 400KV
line, typical value of X/R~20. This would imply an oversizing required of about 21 times the
usual design. Clearly this high amount of oversizing is not practical. Thus, the important
conclusion is that, protection engineers have to live with the saturation problem.
Cautions in CT selection:
While choosing a CT for a particular application, it is necessary to observe following
precautions.
1. The CT rating and continuous load current should match. For example, if max load
current is 90A, a 100:5 Ct may be acceptable but 50:5 is not acceptable.
2. The maximum fault current should be less than 20 times the CT rated current. for
example 100:5 CT can be used, so long as burden on the CT & maximum primary fault
current is below 2000A.
3. The voltage rating of CT should be compatible. For example, 100:5 C100 would give
linear response, upto 20 times rated current provided CT burden is kept
below(100/20*5=1 ). With 2 burden, this CT can be used only if maximum current
is limited to 1000A.
4. Parallel of CTs e.g. in differential protection, or with SLG fault can create significant
errors in CT performance. One should in general ascertain that magnetizing current is
kept much below the pick up value.
Following example, illustrates this point
Exercise problems:
13

If the current ratio is adequate for a protection, but CT burden is high; then the
performance of CT may deteriorate due to large magnetizing current and/or saturation problem.
The CT performance can be improved by connecting the CTs in series.

1) Show the dotted terminals for correct secondary series connection
2) What is the VA of CT in fig (a) & (b) respectively?

1) Electromechanical relays tend to saturate at high currents. This reduces the relay burden
on CT, and so that the CT performance at moderately high currents may be considered
better than at relays rated burden at 5A.
2) Use of instantaneous over current relays has the potential to overcome this problem of
saturation of CTs
3) Differential protection can operate on external faults due to the un equal saturation of
CTs

In this design, we explained the basic concept for CCVT design and we assumed
the transformer to be ideal. But in actual design practice the value of magnetizing
impedance of transformer, resistance of reactor etc have to be taken into account,
as ratio erroro and phase angle error | will also get affected by these values.
