Relay engineers have had to rely on many sources to compile information on current transformer application. Typically, they have drawn on relay application and transformer textbooks, manufacturer publications, and standards. Recognizing the need for a comprehensive one source document, the power system relaying committee has produced the C37.110-1996 guide for the application of current transformers used for protective relay purposes.

This paper compares performance characteristics of conventional current transformers and Rogowski coils used for protective relaying purposes. Rogowski coils have low-power outputs. They are linear
Magnetization and Primary Injection Test of Current Transformer for Protective Relaying
Emphasis is placed on the ability of current transformers to provide accurate operating current at normal system operation and other system disturbance to protective relay systems in high voltage

Current transformers (CTs) are the basic interconnection between the power system and protective relays. One of the practical concerns for the protection engineer is the actual ability of a CT to
Current Transformer Adequacy
A windows application is developed to check whether CT selected for particular application having certain burden is adequate or not and if in case the selected CT is not adequate then the application will suggest new CT design to avoid saturation.
Considerations for using high-impedance or low-impedance relays for bus differential protection
Two drastically different types of differential relays, one with a single set of very high-impedance inputs and another with multiple sets of low-impedance inputs, are available for bus differential
