Hi;
What would be the standard ratios for a CT Multi Ratio CT-4000/5

Thanks,

DMA

500, 1500, 1000, and 1000:5 from X1 to 2, and 2 to 3 and so on. Other ratios are derivable from those. ANSI/NEMA/IEEE assumed, don't know if IEC is the same.

500/1000/1500/2000/2500/3000/3500/4000:5A

I don't remember the tap combinations off the top of my head :)

Interesting. I never looked at how turns ratios add up on CTs. I went to a document I found in my old files and found the datat below. With this info, you can figure the turns ratio between any two terminals. e.g., on a 600:5, the ratio for tapping beween X2 and X4 is (50+250):5 or 300:5.

600:5
X1:X2  20 turns  x 5 =  100:5
X2:X3  10 turns  x 5 =   50:5
X3:X4  50 turns  x 5 =  250:5
X4:X5  40 turns  x 5 =  200:5

1200:5
X1:X2   40 turns  x 5 =  200:5
X2:X3   20 turns  x 5 =  100:5
X3:X4  100 turns  x 5 =  500:5
X4:X5   80 turns  x 5 =  400:5

2000:5
X1:X2   80 turns  x 5 =  400:5
X2:X3  160 turns  x 5 =  800:5
X3:X4   60 turns  x 5 =  300:5
X4:X5  100 turns  x 5 =  500:5

3000:5
X1:X2  200 turns  x 5 = 1000:5
X2:X3  240 turns  x 5 = 1200:5
X3:X4   60 turns  x 5 =  300:5
X4:X5  100 turns  x 5 =  500:5

4000:5
X1:X2  100 turns  x 5 =  500:5
X2:X3  300 turns  x 5 = 1500:5
X3:X4  200 turns  x 5 = 1000:5
X4:X5  200 turns  x 5 = 1000:5

5000:
X1:X2  300 turns  x 5 = 1500:5
X2:X3  100 turns  x 5 =  500:5
X3:X4  400 turns  x 5 = 2000:5
X4:X5  200 turns  x 5 = 1000:5

Just as a side issue, what is the standard with regards to P1 & P2
ie is it the standard to have P1 nearest to the source ?

In the case of BCTs on devices, the primary polarity is toward the device.

I'll have to disagree with stevenal.  On circuit breakers and transformers I've seen in the USA, the polarity marks of bushing CTs have been away from the device.  I don't know if there is a standard for this.

In switchgear with CTs on the bushings of drawout breakers, primary polarity is toward the breaker.

jghrist is correct, away from the device is what I should have said. NEMA SG-4 details this for outdoor breakers.

Sorry to barge in on this one, but is there a specific IEEE standard that lists standard CT ratios?

Thanks,

Richard Byrne.

Confirm for the BCTs and other CTs we make for apparatus, the polarity is normally away from the device, i.e. on the top for a BCT.
