After the first demonstration model experimented in 1988(1*2), a current limiter system has been recently realized and tested, based on GEC ALSTHOWs kA- class AC superconducting conductors. Its active components are two parallel non inductive superconducting windings, a shunt resistor, and a detection box which triggers the opening of a fast circuit breaker. Rated currents up to 1 kAms, and ground to phase voltages up to 5 kV,, have been applied. The transient peak current is strictly limited… CONTINUE READING
