Direct-Current Vacuum Circuit Breaker With Superconducting Fault-Current Limiter

The objective of this paper is to propose a dc current interruption technology for railway dc traction systems, consisting of a dc vacuum circuit breaker with a superconducting fault-current limiter (SFCL). To this end, a 1.5-kV dc circuit breaker prototype is designed, involving a dc vacuum circuit breaker and a resistive-type SFCL serially connected. The… (More)
