BGCT
Board Mounted Bushing-Type Generator
Current Transformer

The Board Mounted Generator CT is designed to be mounted over the high voltage terminal bushing of power generators. This Bushing-type GCT may also be used on Isolated Phase Bus (IPB) of higher system voltage levels. Because of its open construction, it can easily be designed to suit any custom mounting footprint and offers a lightweight alternative to casted units.

A major benefit this design offers is a quick turnaround during a forced emergency outage.

eSP
Outdoor Mounted Slip-Over Bushing
Current Transformer

The eSP is a special application version of our outdoor mounted slip-over BCT, developed specifically for the SP/SPS power circuit breaker. This circuit breaker is one of the most popular in its class (up to 72kV), and has been in existence since 1980. We are offering this self-contained model as a solution to add additional Current Transformers (CTs) when originally supplied with only one per pole. This model can change out older CTs for system upgrades or to replace aged and failing CTs when retiring the breaker is not an option.

UTILITY POWER GENERATION MARKET

“About 51% of the generating capacity of the US is in plants that are at least 30 years old, as of the end of 2010.” (ASCE’s Failure to Act – The Economic Impact of Current Investment Trends in Electricity Infrastructure, copyright 2011). In addition, a tremendous amount of the coal-based generating capacity is being retired, placing a greater expectation of reliability on the remaining assets.

Meramec Instrument Transformer Co. services the Utility Power Generation Market with high quality, custom-designed current transformers. Our CTs are designed to fit your specifications and budget and they are delivered when needed.  Whether you’re planning your Current Transformer requirements for new equipment, system upgrades and replacement units, or you’re trying to recover from an unplanned outage, remember there is no equivalent.

Utility Power Transmission & Distribution Market

“Nationally, 70% of transmission lines and power transformers are 25 years or older, while 60% of circuit breakers are more than 30 years old, as of the end of 2010.” Making matters worse, the investment gap for T&D is expected to grow and at a faster pace. There is increased pressure on the grid for operational reliability.” (ASCE’s Failure to Act – The Economic Impact of Current Investment Trends in Electricity Infrastructure, copyright 2011.)

High Voltage and Medium Voltage Power Circuit Breaker OEM Market

The US High Voltage and Medium Voltage Circuit Breaker OEM market accounts for roughly two-thirds of all bushing-type instrument current transformer purchases per year and is dominated by four players that hold approximately 77% of the market share. While customization is available, standardization of options and designs is the prevalent trend in this market.

As a circuit breaker producer, product quality is a given, and you cannot risk your company’s reputation on anything less. Purchase price is very important, but so are the costs associated with carrying inventory. You certainly cannot afford to buy excess inventory to keep a large safety stock on-hand, and you cannot risk stopping production due to late delivery. Timely product delivery is also paramount. In addition, you certainly don’t want to buy your CTs from one of your competitors who could put their priorities over your own. Meramec Instrument Transformer Co. services the HV and MV Power Circuit Breaker OEM Market with high quality, reliable and affordable current transformers. Our current transformers are designed to fit your specifications and budget, and they are delivered when needed.

Power Transformer Market

Product Quality is a given, as you CANNOT risk your company’s reputation on anything less. The expectation on reliability has never been greater, in spite of the fact that there is more breadth and complexity to the electrical system.

Not only does your larger customer base cause you to support a very diverse range of specifications (you certainly want to provide your customers with the product that fits their specific needs), there are many instances where they delay spec’ing CTs until late in the design process, and in some cases they change their specification at the 11th hour – shutting down production and possibly leading to late penalties. You need to know that you can have the exact CTs your customer wants, when you need them. In addition, you certainly don’t want to buy your CTs from one of your competitors who could put their priorities over your own.

Electric Power Design & Engineering Firms

Design and engineering firms (and careers) make it or break it on their performance. You have a pretty good understanding of the design and application of CTs, but you don’t deal with them every day, so you know that there is risk. Risk that the design specification is right and risk in selecting the right supplier for the current transformers. Cost is a concern, but product quality, technical support, and follow-through are critical issues. Do you really want to take a risk on your reputation by choosing anyone but Meramec?
