A Milliampere Current Transformer

Edward Bennett
1914 Transactions of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers  
OF PAPER (1) It is pointed out that by the use of a current transformer having a primary to secondary current ratio of the order of 1 to 100, oscillograms can be obtained of the charging current of a single high-tension insulator or of a few feet of high-tension transmission line; that is, oscillograms of currents of the order of 0.1 to 0.5 milliampere may be obtained. (2) The drawings and specification are given for a transformer for this purpose. (3) The transformer relations are discussed;

(4) A series of oscillograms is given to illustrate some of the applications of the transformer, such as to the study of corona, high-tension insulators, and leakage currents in evacuated lamps.
