Abstract

In the context of modern power systems, where there are lots of non-linear loads and generators based on switching power electronics, the accurate measurement of voltage and current harmonics is a key task for the knowledge of the actual state of the network. Voltage and current transducers play a crucial role since they are always the first part of the measurement chain. Currently, classical voltage and current instrument transformers are the most installed transducers, but their performance not always is fully characterized in the presence of distorted waveforms. Therefore, in this paper a calibration setup for the accurate characterization of current transformers with distorted waveforms is presented. System implementation and characterization is presented; then it is employed for the evaluation of the performance of a commercial current transformer in distorted conditions.
