To reduce the power loss in normal state, non-inductively wound high temperature superconducting (HTS) coils are used for fault current limiter (FCL) application. Non-inductively wound coils can be classified into two types: solenoid type and pancake type. These two types have different electrical and thermal and mechanical characteristics due to their winding structure difference. This paper deals with the current limiting characteristics, magnetic field analysis of the two coils. Simulation using finite element method (FEM) was used to analyze the magnetic field distribution and inductance of the coils. Short circuit test using stabilizer-free coated conductor (CO was also carried out. We can compare the characteristics of the two types of coil by using the data obtained from simulation and short circuit test. We confirmed the feasibility of FCL application by the analysis about the characteristics of non-inductively wound coil using CC.
