Trench is a recognized world leader in thedesign and manufacture of high voltageequipment for application on electric utilityand high energy industrial systems. Aspart of Trench's product scope, theCompany produces a diversified range ofInstrument Transformers which are installedon 69 - 800 kV electrical systems.Instrument Transformers include:Voltage (Potential) Transformers(both inductive and capacitivetype), Current Transformers andCombined Instrument Transformers(voltage and current transformer inone unit).Capacitor Voltage Transformersmust convert transmission classvoltages to standardized low andeasily measurable values, which willbe used for metering, protectionand control of the high voltagesystem. As such, the need for accu-rate and reliable voltage transfor-mation is essential. Additionally,Capacitor Voltage Transformersserve as a coupling capacitor forcoupling high frequency power linecarrier signals to the transmissionline.This brochure will detail the features andcharacteristics Capacitor Voltage Transfor-mers. Please refer to Trench brochureE210 for additional general informationconcerning high voltage InstrumentTransformers and brochure E 235.10 forspecific information concerning CouplingCapacitors.
