    First off Great note, very descriptive. I have a wrench to throw however. I am trying to do the same thing, however, I need to measure milli-amp currents from the main at high voltages, in excess of 15KV. Here's my main issue, my primary is adjustable 15Kv 30ma, I need to measure the load current (0 to 30ma). The concern is, at 15kv through a so 50:1 current transformer will the voltage be an order of magnatude higher or am I missing something. I will be experimenting soon, but I also do not want to fry anything in the attempt.

    Thanks in advance.
