Exam question regarding saturation test of a 1500/5 multi-ratio CT
During a saturation test of a 1500/5 multi-ratio CT, 400 volts is applied to the X1 to X4 tap. The X1 to X4 tap is the 1200/5 ratio. What is the expected voltage across the X1 to X5 tap?
Correct answer is 0 Volts.
Can we have clarification on what the question is suggesting? Are you applying 440 V directly on the taps? Aren't the X4 and X5 taps the same point, electrically, and would therefore have the same potential voltage?
The 0V is the correct answer.

Agreed. This question has kind of tricky wording.

The voltage across X1-X5 in the condition described will be 500V. 1500/1200 X 400 = 500
