Having looked for a number of days on the internet and studied to the best of my ability I am a little stumped on the current transformer flux linkage.
From my basic understanding of a voltage transformer, as a CT can be viewed as a step up VT.
A current in a coil of wire lags the voltage by 90 degrees due to inductive reactance. This has a flux linkage in an iron core which induces a back emf to a secondary coil of wire which corrects this phase displacement (+90 degrees). and produces a current in phase with the primary voltage.
My difficulty in understanding the CT is that they usually in my industry have only one turn on the primary which is therefore not an "inductor" so how is the secondary of a CT in phase with the primary when there is no initial 90 degree displacement?
Hope this makes sense
