This amendment A2 modifies the European Standard EN 60044-1:1999; it was approved by CENELEC
on 2002-12-01. CENELEC members are bound to comply with the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations
which stipulate the conditions for giving this amendment the status of a national standard without any
Up-to-date lists and bibliographical references concerning such national standards may be obtained on
application to the Central Secretariat or to any CENELEC member.

This amendment exists in three official versions (English, French, German). A version in any other language
made by translation under the responsibility of a CENELEC member into its own language and notified to the
Central Secretariat has the same status as the official versions.

CENELEC members are the national electrotechnical committees of Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic,
Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta,
Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.

2.1 General definitions
Insert, after definition 2.1.16, the following new definition:
highest voltage of a system
highest value of operating voltage which occurs under normal operating conditions at any time
and at any point in the system
Renumber the existing definitions 2.1.17 to 2.1.33 as 2.1.18 to 2.1.34.

rated continuous thermal current
Renumber definition 2.1.29 and add, at the end of the title, the symbol, as follows:
rated continuous thermal current (I )
60044-1 Amend. 2  IEC:2002 – 5 –
Add, after definition 2.1.34, the following new definition:
multi-ratio current transformer
current transformer on which more ratios are obtained by connecting the primary winding
sections in series or parallel or by means of taps on the secondary winding
2.2 Additional definitions for measuring current transformers
instrument security factor (FS)
Add, below the definition, the following new note:
NOTE 1 Attention should be paid to the fact that the actual instrument security factor is affected by the burden.
Renumber the existing note as NOTE 2.
Page 23
4.3 Rated continuous thermal current
Replace the text of the existing subclause by the following (the amendment of the title
concerns the French version only):
The standard value of rated continuous thermal current is the rated primary current.
When a rated continuous thermal current greater than rated primary current is specified, the
preferred values should be 120 % to 150 % and 200 % of rated primary current.

5.1 Insulation requirements
Add after 5.1.7 the following new subclause:
5.1.8 Transmitted overvoltages
These requirements apply to
– current transformers having primary winding with U ≥ 72,5 kV;
– current transformers without primary winding and associated to equipment with
U ≥ 72,5 kV (i.e., GIS, transformer turrets, cable slip-over).
The overvoltages transmitted from the primary to the secondary terminals shall not exceed the
values given in Table 16, under the test and measuring conditions described in 9.4.

60044-1 Amend. 2  IEC:2002 – 7 –
NOTE 1 The wave-shape characteristics are representative of voltage oscillations due to switching operations.
NOTE 2 Other transmitted overvoltage limits may be agreed between manufacturer and purchaser.
Type A impulse requirement applies to current transformers for air-insulated substations,
while impulse B requ
