Analysis of electromagnetic forces in high voltage superconducting fault current limiters with saturated core
Cabanes Aracil, Jaime, Lopez-Roldan, Jose, Coetzee, Jacob, Darmann, Frank, & Tang, Tee (2012) Analysis of electromagnetic forces in high voltage superconducting fault current limiters with saturated core. International Journal of Electrical Power & Energy Systems, 43(1), pp. 1087-1093.
This paper presents a three-dimensional numerical analysis of the electromagnetic forces within a high voltage superconducting Fault Current Limiter (FCL) with a saturated core under short-circuit conditions. The effects of electrodynamics forces in power transformer coils under short-circuit conditions have been reported widely. However, the coil arrangement in an FCL with saturated core differs significantly from existing reactive devices. The boundary element method is employed to perform an electromagnetic force analysis on an FCL. The analysis focuses on axial and radial forces of the AC coil. The results are compared to those of a power transformer and important design considerations are highlighted.
