    i use this method as well, to deal with the 57 to 63hz question, go to instument settings and change from automatic ramp up to manual ramp up, then use the arrow keys to bring the ccvt to 10kv, read voltage on the secondary, this will give u the ratio as well as be a stable setting at 60hz

    go into the insturment settings of the m4100 and change the ramp up from automatic to manual, then use the page up and page down keys to raise the voltage to 10kv on the top terminal of ccvt, read the voltage on the secondary, this will eliminate the machine from ranging from 57 to 63hz but rather give you stable readings at 60hz,

    I use the power factor test set. Read the ratio off the secondaries.

    Very helpful. Thank you for the info.

My understanding is a standard TTR test set will record too high of an error due to the voltage decay in the capacitor stack. Vanguard's CTV-765 seems like a simple and fast test set. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
    I believe Omicron makes a special test set for this. I have used their CPC-600 (not sure I remember correct number) to test these also. You could also probably use a variac although it depends on the ratio if you can get a high enough voltage to measure secondary.
