Title (EN) SUPERCONDUCTING MATRIX FAULT CURRENT LIMITER WITH CURRENT-DRIVEN TRIGGER MECHANISM
(FR) LIMITATEUR DE COURANT DE PANNE A MATRICE SUPERCONDUCTRICE PRESENTANT UN MECANISME D'ENCLENCHEMENT ELECTRIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A modular and scalable Matrix-type Fault Current Limiter (24) (MFCL) that functions as a “variable inpedance” device in an electric power network (28), using components made of superconducting and non-superconducting electrically conductive materials. An inductor (12) is connected in series with the trigger superconductor in the trigger matrix and physically surrounds the superconductor (14). The current surge during a fault will generate a trigger magnetic field in the series inductor (12) to cause fast and uniform quenching of the trigger superconductor (14) to significantly reduce burnout risk due to superconductor material non-uniformity.
(FR)Un limitateur de courant de panne de type matrice modulaire et échelonnable (24) (MFCL) servant de dispositif 'à impédance variable' dans un réseau électrique (28) utilisant des composants obtenus à partir de matières électriquement conductrices superconductrices et non superconductrices. Un inducteur (12) est connecté en série avec le superconducteur d'enclenchement de la matrice d'enclenchement et entoure physiquement le superconducteur (14). L'apparition de courant pendant une panne va générer un champ magnétique d'enclenchement dans l'inducteur en série (12) entraînant l'étouffement rapide et uniforme du superconducteur d'enclenchement (14) afin de réduire considérablement le risque de claquage causé par la non uniformité de la matière superconductrice.
