Abstract

A DC-operating resistive-type superconducting fault current limiter for AC applications (in short a DC Resistive SFCL) is based on the synergistic use of the “resistive” and the “rectifier” fault current limiter concepts, and allows the superconductor to operate in nearly DC current conditions. This regime of operation drastically reduces AC losses thus opening new perspectives with regard to materials, architecture of the cable, lay out of windings and cryogenics. In this paper the concept of DC resistive SFCL is resumed and a case study about its possible application in the distribution electrical system is reported. Two possible connections of external shunt resistor in order to reduce the Joule heating during the limiting phase are analysed.
