What are VTs used for?
VT Types
VT Accuracy

Transient Performance

VTs are Needed to Give an Accurate
Representation of the System Voltage
A Clear Understanding of VTs is Required
to Specify them for a Particular Application
VT - Voltage Transformer, also know as
Potential Transformer (PT)
CVT - Capacitive Voltage Transformer also
know as CCVT (Capacitive Coupled VT)
BPD - Bushing Potential Device also know
as CBD (Capacitive Bushing Device)
Residual Voltage - Voltage on the
secondary after the primary voltage has
been removed

             VT Types
Wire Wound Transformer (WWT)-
Traditional Transformer, primary and a
secondary winding with an iron core
Capacitive Voltage Transformer - Device
with coupling capacitors, wire wound
Bushing Potential Device - Similar to CVT,
capacitive coupling from tap points in
bushing of PCB
 Wire Wound Transformers
Not used as a stand alone transformer rated
for Line to Ground voltage.
Wide Operating Range. 5% - 150% to
190% of Rated Voltage.
Sized for Low Flux Density for this Wide
Expensive, and Large.
Used with coupling capacitors in a CVT.

  Basic Transformer Model



       Zb        Vs        Ns

 Wire Wound Transformers
Ideal Because of Accuracy in Reproducing
Transients on the Secondary.
– “no load” Errors, Voltage Drop due to Exciting
  Current in Primary
– “load” Errors, Voltage Drop in both Windings
  due to High Burden Currents

         Capacitive VTs
– Basic Circuit and Circuit Diagram
– L, Inductive Reactance
    Tuned to Resonate with Equivalent C at System
    Prevents Phase Shift.
    External or Internal to Wire Wound T.
    Protects C2, Saturate if the Secondary of T is
– Tuning of T ratio using Tappings on T or
  Separate Auto-Transformer on Sec. Winding.

    Capacitive VTs (con’t)
– Ferro Resonance Suppression Circuit will be
  Discussed Later
– Typical values of C1 are around 2000 pf.
– Typical Change of Phase Error at Rated Burden
  (150 VA .85 pf)
    30 min/Hz at 145kV
    10 min/Hz at 400kV.
– Modern Transformers - Smaller Series
  Reactance, gives 1.5% and 60 min.

            CVTs (con’t)
– At Low System Voltage, the Core Flux and
  Permeability are Reduced. Exciting Impedance
  Decreases and Intermediate Current and
  Voltage go up Mag. and Phase Error.
– Steady State Classifications based on Burden
– No Standard for Transient Response
            CVTs (con’t)
– Resulting from:
    Primary Reclosing
    Variations in Secondary Load (Short Circuits)
– DC Voltage Applied to Intermediate Voltage
– Saturates Core of WWT Reducing Exciting
  Impedance and Causing Large Inrush Currents.

            CVTs (con’t)
– When Current Peaks and Starts to Decay, Core
  Magnetic Field will Collapse, Charging the
  Capacitor in the Opposite Polarity.
– 3rd Harmonic Voltage Common
– Output Voltage Increase of 25% to 50%.
– Common in Circuit with Low Losses. Increase
  the Resistive Load on the VT.
– Aux. VTs Aggravate the Condition.
Ferro-resonance Suppression Circuit
– Two types Active and Passive

                            Active                                   Passive

                              CVTs (con’t)
     – Active Circuit, No Affect of Fundamental
       Voltage, Low Impedance path for Off-Nominal
       Frequencies, Attenuates Off-Nominal
       Frequency Voltages.
     – Passive Circuit, High Secondary Voltage,
       Flash Gap to Loading Resistor, Saturable
       Inductor will Saturate to Remove the
               CVTs (con’t)
Transient Response
– Capacitors and Inductor Impedances , Large
  compared to the burden for CVTs. Results in
  Oscillations in Secondary when the Primary
  Voltage Changes Rapidly.
– Residual voltage due to Discharge of Energy
– Transient Overreach- CVT Transients Reduce
  Fundamental Component of Fault Voltage.
  Decreases Impedance, Zone 1 Element picks
  up for Fault out of Zone of Protection.

               CVTs (con’t)
– Solutions:
     Reduce Zone 1 Impedance Reach - Becomes
    Time Delay to Block Tripping During Transient
    Time - Close-In Fault Clearing Times.
– CVT Transients depends on Point On Wave of
  the Fault. Voltage Zero Faults Worse than
  Voltage Peaks.
– CVT Component Contributions to Transient
    Turns Ratio, Higher for Better Isolation Between
    Capacitors and Burden.
              CVTs (con’t)
    Coupling Capacitors, High C CVTs Decrease
    Transient Magnitude.
    Ferro-resonance Suppression Circuit
      – Active Circuit acts like a Band-Pass Filter, Extra Time
        Delay in Output. Added Energy Storage Devices
        Contribute Adversely to the Transient.
      – Passive Circuit has Little Effect on the Transient.
    Output Burden, Parallel Burdens are Worse for
    Residual Voltages. Provide Additional Discharge
    Paths with Little Resistance for Damping.

 Bushing Potential Device
– Same as CVT
– Mounts on or Near Circuit Breaker Bushing
– Capacitances C1 and C2 Chosen from Tap
  Points on Side of Bushing.
– Steady State Accuracy's Similar to those in a
– Suggest Having Burden with a pf of 100% and
  Load Device to Burden Rating, to Reduce
             BPD (con’t)
Transient Response
 – Low Capacitance Values Resulting from the
   Method Obtained.
 – Lower C Devices have Worse Transient
