Abstract

The paper presents a full theoretical analysis of thyristors-bridge-type superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) operational modes, supported by MATLAB/SIMULINK-based simulations. Both normal and fault current operation conditions of a SFCL-based power system under continuous conduction mode (CCM) and discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) are treated. The developed equations are shown to be valid for all possible thyristor-firing angles. Derived analytical relations are useful for both comprehensive design of thyristors-bridge-type SFCLs and analysis of circuit simulator based outcomes.
