A novel circuit, consisting of solid-state diodes and a biased superconducting coil, for limiting the fault currents in three phase ac systems is presented. A modification of the basic circuit results in a solid-state ac breaker with current limiting features. The operating characteristics of the fault current limiter and the ac breaker are analyzed. An optimization procedure for sizing the superconducting coil is derived.
