Rapid changes and developments are being witnessed in the transformer design technologies. The phenomenal growth of power systems has put tremendous responsibilities on the industry to supply reliable and cost-effective transformers. The advent of high-temperature superconductor (HTS) materials has increased interest in research and development of superconducting transformers with major projects being carried out worldwide. The major challenges in the design and development of HTS transformers are the modeling of short-circuit and inrush currents the transformer can withstand. Even though HTS technology is claimed to be more efficient, reliable, and eco-friendly, use of HTS transformers must be appropriately verified through the proper modeling of power system network.
