The Coreless Superconducting Fault Current Limiter 15 kV 140 A

Published by Michał MAJKA, Janusz KOZAK, Electrotechnical Institute Abstract. The superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) is a device allowing for a more effective use of the existing power network infrastructure. The limitation of short-circuit currents by the SFCL to safe levels will result in the network elements being susceptible to smaller electrodynamic and thermal overloads.Continue reading “The Coreless Superconducting Fault Current Limiter 15 kV 140 A”

A Review on Voltage Control Methods for Active Distribution Networks

Published by Tengku Juhana TENGKU HASHIM1, Azah MOHAMED2, Hussain SHAREEF3, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Abstract. Power distribution systems are in the state of transition from passive to active networks due to the rising penetration level of distributed generators (DGs). One of the technical challenges of active networks is to maintain an acceptable voltage level. This problemContinue reading “A Review on Voltage Control Methods for Active Distribution Networks”
