CG Global R&D is developing a resistive-type superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) under the Ministry of Power, National Perspective Plan for R&D in Indian Power Sector. A resistive-type 440-V 800-A single-phase SFCL is developed using YBCO tape in stage I of the project, and an 11-kV 1250-A three-phase SFCL will be developed in stage II. The 440-V 800-A SFCL is assembled with seven parallel modules. Each module has series-connected YBCO tapes to accommodate the design length. The SFCL is tested at 77 K for continuous current of few hours, fault currents at low voltage, and fault currents at 440 V up to 100 ms (5 cycles). The evaluated data will be used to develop an 11-kV 1250-A three-phase SFCL in stage II.
