Abstract

Superconducting fault current limiter (SCFCL) is expected to be a first application of high-TC superconductors to electric power systems. We have been developing a magnetic shielding type of SCFCL. In this paper, we propose a design method for the magnetic shield SCFCL. The method is based on a newly developed computer program which can evaluate the dynamic thermal and electromagnetic behaviors of high-TC superconducting cylinder in fault current limiter operation. As an example, the trial design of a model system, which is 6.6 kV (rms) in rated voltage, 400 A(rms) in rated current, and 12.5 kA(rms) in maximum prospective short-circuit current, is shown.
