VOLTAGE TRANSFORMERS & COUPLING CAPACITOR VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER COMPARISON
Voltage Transformer
(1)

Coupling Capacitor Voltage Transformer IEEE defined and “Precision Plus” accuracies achievable. Accuracy depends on: (a) Capacitor voltage divider (b) Reactance (c) Turns ratio of intermediate voltage transformer Accuracy adversely affected by system frequency change No line discharge capability Inferior transient response under system faults Ferro-resonance is localized in the secondary circuit Suitable for PLC coupling Limited thermal burden depending on protective gap settings Ground potential rise depending on capacitance Tested at higher insulation levels Because of capacitance, the insulation withstand of station is improved.

IEEE defined and “Precision Plus” accuracies achievable. Accuracy depends on turns ration only

(2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10)

Accuracy not sensitive to system frequency variation Suitable for line discharge Excellent transient response under system faults System ferro-resonance is a concern No PLC coupling capability Capable to be used for station service Limited ground potential rise during disconnect operation Tested at lower insulation levels No impact on station insulation as capacitance is very low.
