Compact high voltage superconducting fault current limiter employing a new core architecture and novel magnetic materials

Grant

  • Linkage Projects

Abstract


  • The aim of this project is to develop a compact high voltage superconducting fault current limiter design suitable for integration into electricity grids. The expected outcomes of the project are 1) development of new core architecture, some concepts of which have already been demonstrated on a small scale, for high voltage applications, 2) characterisation of novel core materials, identifying the most economical and technically beneficial design, 3) design of appropriate superconducting coils and 4) a fully characterised prototype. The new architecture and novel magnetic materials employed in this project are essentially absent from the literature and are expected to significantly increase the high voltage practicality of these devices.
