Continuously Transposed Conductors (CTC)
continuously transposed conductors , CTC, winding copper wire, cable, manufacturer - Image
Continuously Transposed Conductors (CTC) consists of a number of enameled rectangular wires (5-95 strands) made into an assembly.

Each strand is transposed in turn to each position in the cable and is then covered with layers of insulation paper. Transposition effectively eliminates inductance issues in the Cable. Continuously Transposed Conductors are used in winding for medium to ultra high power transformers.
CTC is manufactured by OFHC copper, and on specific customer request can also be made from ETP copper.
Apart from normal CTC which has insulation of paper, we are able to supply polyester net/ roped CTC which has been designed to reduce production cost, oil pocket and to improve cooling efficiency.
Hardened type CTC (CPR1, CPR2and CPR3: BS1432) and Self-bonding CTC which can be used to improve mechanical and electrical strength are also available.
Types of CTC
» Normal CTC (Soft Copper).
» Normal CTC (Soft Copper)
» Work hardened Epoxy Bond Coated CTC
» Ventilated CTC
» CTC with net wrapping /polyester taped.
CPR-1 140-170 150-185 approx Pure OF Grade
CPR-2 170-220 185-240 approx Pure OF Grade
CPR-3 220-260 240-280 approx Silver Bearing Copper
Advantages of Using CTC
» Reduction in winding time for transformer
» Reduction in size and therefore cost of transformer
» Reduction in electrical losses
» Improved winding ability and ease of handling
» Improved mechanical strength of winding (Self-Bonding CTC)
