104a Load - 100a CT

I’m wondering, if I have a circuit that has a max possible current of 104a, and I use a 100a CT, what happens when the load goes above 100a?

Do CT’s have a kind of buffer range where they could work at 104a, or is there a hard limit at 100a?

Do you have a fire-extinguisher?

Seriously, that’s not a problem.

Do you think it would register 104a or just sit at 100?

It would be 104. Depending on the make of the CT, they can get saturated as they approach the high end. Why not just use a 200A and eliminate the guesswork?

Thanks, you’re right. I’ll use a 200a CT
