The most important thing in developing a superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) is to find the maximum operating condition for each current-limiting element to increase its SFCL capacity. The maximum operating condition can be defined using Vmax, Tr, Imax and Iq, which are detected after the quenching of the SFCL. In this study, YBCO coated conductor whose characteristics were proved as the superconducting fault current limiting element was used to test the operating characteristics of the unit current limiting element and to find the maximum operating condition using Vmax, Tr, Imax and Iq, which are detected after the quenching against the fault current according to the fault angle. YBCO coated conductors used in the test are one wire with stainless-steel stabilizing layer and one wire with no stabilizing layer. Critical current value is 70 Arms and the critical temperature is 90 K. The YBCO coated conductor with non stabilizing layer had a critical current of 80 Arms and a critical temperature of 90 K. Therefore, the two YBCO coated conductors in this study had different critical currents and an identical critical current of 90 K.
