In this work, we report on the design and tests results of a coreless inductive SFCL with a 600 A rated current for MV distribution system. The fault current limiter comprises of 4 identical units immersed in liquid nitrogen bath. Each unit consists of 3 windings. The primary and secondary windings made of 2G HTS tape SF12050 are magnetically coupled with the primary Cu winding. The high magnetic coupling between superconducting primary and secondary windings gives a low voltage drop on the limiter at nominal current. The presented solution reduces the size and the weight of the device. Tests performed at high power test facility prove the limiting capability of the coreless inductive SFCL.
