Abstract

The continuous development of electric power utilities has led to the increase in the problems concerning fault currents. The use of fault current limiters, which suppress fault currents below a prescribed level, has been examined in many places. The authors have studied a superconducting fault current limiter that is based on the magnetic shielding effect of superconductors. In this paper, we derive a requirement for leading to a flux-jumping inside a ceramic superconductor at liquid nitrogen temperature. Next, two kinds of magnetic-shield type superconducting fault current limiters are designed, and their current-limiting simulations are tried using a computer.
