Abstract

Superconducting fault current limiters are considered as emerging devices for the advent of modern power grids. Those limiters as well as other electric power grid applications have been developed in the last years in order to support the increased penetration of dispersed generation. The development of such limiters requires new design tools that allows to simulate those devices in electrical power grids with different voltage ratings and characteristics. This work presents a methodology to simulate the behaviour of saturated core type limiters based on its characteristic curves. A prototype is tested to obtain its characteristic and then the methodology is implemented in Simulink. The simulation carried out by the proposed methodology is compared with a real test.
