This study examines issues relating to heat exchange between an innovative 6(10) kV current and voltage transformer (and its components) and its environment in unfavourable weather conditions. Existing designs of digital current and voltage transformers are featured in systems of commercial and technical electric power accounting, and also relay protection and automation. We have presented the results of mathematical simulation of the thermal state of both a single resistor included in our measuring device, and the digital transformer as a whole. Simulation was performed using the finite element method. We have taken into account the impact of such factors as direct and diffused solar radiation, high ambient temperatures and various voltage levels on the thermal state of the functioning equipment. To verify the developed mathematical model we have presented the results of a series of experiments conducted in a high-voltage environmental chamber. Our study conclusively shows that voltage, insolation and ambient temperature significantly affect the thermal state of a functioning current and voltage transformer.
