How to simulation a circuit that uses Current Transformer


I want to simulate a circuit where Current transformer is used. Could you please help and point me to available tutorials or resource which I can follow?

Thank you for your support.

I'm lost on what your problem is. You simply connect the parts bin transformer primary in series with the load and, as a first approximation use 0 ohms burden on the secondary and 1:1 ratio. Then run a time domain simulation of Isec and Ipri to see the result. Once this is working start putting in your prototype values. Don't make a complicated problem of a simple one.
