  10. 10. Main Parts of Generation Station… Disconnect Switch Provides visible circuit separation and permits CB maintenance. It can be operated only when the CB is open i.e. in no-load condition. Surge Arrester Used for protection against lightning and switching over-voltages. They are voltage dependent, nonlinear resistors (Varistors). The arrester provides a low-impedance path to ground for the current from a lightning strike or transient voltage and then restores to a normal operating condition. 10
  11. 11. Main Parts of Generation Station… Current Transformers (CT) and Potential Transformers (PT) Used to lower the magnitude of the current and voltage to be measured. In case of normal meters, to measure current and voltage in a high voltage circuit at 220kV, properly insulated meters are needed to withstand that voltage. The meters will be very big for that purpose. The CT and PT is used to solve this problem. The CT and PT works on the principle of transformer and lowers the current and/or voltage at a lower value which can be safely and easily measured. 11
