This paper proposes automatic power changeover switch system applied superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) of the Korea electric railway using 25 kV-AC Scott transformer. The electric railway needs neutral section to separate two different electrical power phase to m phase and t phase. While the train passes through the neutral section, the electrical power supply phase is changed over to other phase. And that time, the train must turn off the circuit breaker to avoid transient as `inrush-current' and `arc'. These cause negative problems as speed decline of the train, a shorter life of the train circuit breaker. To improve the problems, the inrush current limitation method is proposed. In addition, we analysed the effect of proposed method using time-domain transient simulation software (PSCAD/ EMTDC).
