Features & Benefits

The accurate measurement of electric energy in high-voltage, high current distribution systems relies on 3 key components: a watt-hour meter, a high-voltage transformer and a high current transformer to step down high-voltage and high current to accurate low levels for input to the kWh meters or other electrical measuring devices.  However, if the instrument transformers are not calibrated with similar accuracy, then the precise measurements made by the measuring devices will be with high uncertainty and misleading. For high-voltages and currents, this inaccuracy can have a significant impact on the result. Therefore, calibration of the instrument transformers has become increasingly important.

Beginning with single instruments such as automated high-voltage capacitance tan delta bridge, high-voltage dividers and wattmeter/power analyzers and systems such as the MI Power Calibration Systems (PCS) and Automated Load Loss Measurement System (ALMS) and Isolating Current Transformer (ICT) systems. MI is also 17025 accredited for both in-house and on-site calibration of these measurements. This capability authenticates not only our credentials as an industry-leading instrument developer but also as calibration service provider for the calibration of instrument transformers.

The model 7070A series of AC ratio bridges developed at MI are fully automated for fast and accurate measurements of instrument transformer errors. The 7070A can be easily integrated into complex systems to achieve calibration of voltage transformers up to 800 kV and current transformers to 10,000 Amps. The 7070A will set new standards of measurement in the calibration of instrument transformers.

Model 7070A-UI

The model 7070-UI is an AC Ratio Bridge that combines AC current and voltage ratio measurement capabilities. It provides the user with the convenience of one single measuring unit to calibrate VTs and CTs without losing accuracy. Its main application is for VT and CT test sets. However, the combination of voltage and current inputs can also be used to perform power measurements. The flexibility and high accuracy of this design can be a single instrument solution for multiple measurements at any AC lab. The block diagram for the 7070A-UI is shown in Figure 1.
