Exploring Current Sense Transformers

Posted by Bill Dull on June 11, 2018

Commonly employed in high-current circuits, current sense transformers (CSTs) are a type of instrument transformer used to measure current values in a conductor.

In current transformers (CTs), the primary has very few windings and is connected in series with the conductor carrying the current to be measured. The secondary contains a number of windings that are wound around a secondary ferromagnetic core. Current transformers are sometimes referred to as “series transformers” because the primary winding — which always has very few turns — is in series with the current-carrying conductor supplying the load.
