To develop DC reactor type Superconducting Fault Current Limiter (SFCL), the most important elements are superconducting magnets or inductors. Recently large size magnets have been developed, according as the improvement of high temperature superconducting wire. In DC reactor type SFCL, the purpose of magnet is to store generated electric energy of power system immediately after fault. Therefore most of inductors are designed with air core since magnetic core inductor is too easy saturated to absorb the energy. Therefore the inductor consumes so much superconducting wire to make large inductance and these expensive coils are weak point of DC reactor type SFCL. To solve this problem, Reverse Magnetization Bias (RMB) method is introduced. The energy capacity of magnetic core is expanded to several times. With the shorter length of HTC superconducting wire, the more good effect was obtained in 40V prototype SFCL.
