Reference: DC Kick/Flick Test

Reference information:
Polarity Test

Perform a polarity test of each current transformer.

There are two generally accepted methods of testing aCT’s polarity using simple meters and connections:

• DC Kick/Flick Test:

This is the tried and true method for testing CT polarity, used before electricity was discovered by some accounts. For this test, adc battery, a dc voltmeter or ammeter (preferably analog), and test leads are required. This method is a quick and easy test for polarity, but there is a possibility that it may leave remnant flux in the CT. Remnant flux may cause saturation when the CT is next energized. (See C57.13.1, paragraph 4.3.)Always perform an excitation/saturation test after performing this test. The steps of the dc kick/flick test are as follows: - http://goo.gl/s5c6VI - page 4

Do a polarity test. This can be a "flick" test, where a DC ammeter is connected to the secondary terminals and a battery is used to energize the primary momentarily. By observing the direction of the ammeter deflection when the supply is put on and removed gives the relative polarity of the winding.
