General description

Current transformers type JGF are used in high voltage switchgear within the 245-550 kV range. They transform high current into standardised, equivalent values for meters, measuring and protection devices.

The current transformer section is located in the pressure-resistant head housing. The current transformer cores are fitted in a protective core shell made of massive cast aluminium, which is connected short-circuit proof to the bushing. The secondary outlets are passed through the SF6 /air bushing in the connection terminal box on the base construction of the insulator.

The current distribution along the insulator is optimised by a special layout of the control electrode inside the silicone composite insulator.

The housing components consist of helium-tight, corrosion-resistant cast aluminium. All housing components under pressure are individually typetested according to applicable pressure vessel standards.

The SF6 gas density is monitored temperature-compensated by a gas density monitor with alarm contacts. The special design means the function of the gas density monitor can be checked without dismounting it.

A corrosion-resistant metal rupture disc, protected by a metal cover, located at the top of the head housing ensures safe pressure relief in case of error.

The generously designed terminal box is equipped with a cover that opens sidewards.

Pure SF6 gas is used for ambient temperatures up to -40°C. The transformer is filled with a mixed gas for lower ambient temperatures up to -60°C.

Advantages of
current transformers
  • High operating safety through optimal current distribution in the field-controlled bushing

  • Low weight and high creepage resistance through the use of composite insulators

  • High flexibility due to simple primary and secondary changeover

  • High operating safety through pressure relief with rupture disc
Easy primary changeover
primary changeover
  • A clear and easy primary changeover with a ratio of 1:2 or 1:2:4 is available.

  • The primary changeover is adjusted with one metal plate at each side of the head only.

  • No need to dismount or move the primary connections during adjustment.
Excellent protection against moisture
Excellent protection
against moisture
  • The inner side of the instrument transformer is protected against moisture by means of special sealing rings.

  • All housings are designed with a drain-age area to protect the sealing surfaces of the housings against rain. This significantly reduces crevice corrosion.

  • The housing elements are connected with special stainless steel screws. They are designed in such a way that no humidity can enter the screw hole.
Installation-friendly terminal box
terminal box
  • The generously sized terminal box with a cover that can be opened sidewards, is secured with captive screws. It can accommodate terminal blocks, fuses, spark gaps and sealable covers.

  • The terminal box is equipped as standard with a blind flange. Cable glands can be installed on request.

  • The terminal box has a protected ventilation aperture to prevent condensation.
