An original electronic device for compensating ratio and phase-displacement errors, of measuring current transformers and clamp-on probes, is proposed. It is intended for low-frequency applications (power frequency and its harmonic components), where the magnetizing current is the main cause of measuring errors. This system reduces the magnetic flux in the transformer core, reducing in this way the magnetizing current. The proposed system even reduces the influence of the error produced by the variation of the burden connected to the secondary winding. Large values of burden can be used without effects on the transformer measuring errors. This device can be directly applied to conventional current transformers, connecting the device to the secondary terminals. It is not necessary to use any auxiliary winding or auxiliary core, or any modification of those transformers
