Capacitor Voltage Transformer
Ritz type CVO is a Coupling Capacitor Voltage Transformer (CCVT) used in high voltage and extra-high voltage systems to provide voltage outputs to meters, protective relays, and other instruments. Additionally, the unit can be equipped with carrier accessories that allow the CCVT to be used for coupling power line carrier (PLC) signals to the transmission line for communication applications.
CCVTs become increasingly more cost-effective as the system voltage increases when compared to inductive VTs. CCVTs are also lighter in weight than VTs and can be shipped with the upper capacitor sections disassembled for easier shipping and handling. This brochure details the features and ratings of the Ritz CCVT type CVO.
