ct calculations

Hi to all,

I want to measure an AC current.

My load is a refrigerator that you can see it's specifications in the below :
Line Voltage : 220 V
Normal Current : 2 ~ 3 A
Over Load current : 8 ~ 10 A

How to calculate the specifications of a CT ? Such as :
Np = ?
Ns = ?
Wire Size = ?
Core = ?
and etc.

Thanks a lot for your helps.
