Dispersed generators are being introduced to power systems to secure the electric power supply. However, a short-circuit capacity of the power system increases with the introduction of dispersed generators. As a result, there is concern that a fault current will increase further, and instantaneous voltage sag might be caused. It is proposed to apply a superconducting fault current limiter in the distribution system with dispersed generators to solve these issues. In this paper, the effect of superconducting fault current limiter in this power system is studied by the analysis with EMTP and the confirmation test is conducted with a simulator.
