With the help of neat diagram, explain the construction of current transformer. 
Last Answer : Construction of current transformer:   C.T. has bar type conductor, which behaves as primary winding. The primary of C.T. carries large current Ip which is to be measured, so the bar ... sectional area is small. An ammeter of small range is connected across the secondary as shown in figure.
