Abstract

A high-Tc superconducting (HTS) DC reactor has been developed as a part of DC reactor type superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) rated on 6.6 kV/200 A. The DC reactor was a solenoid coil and was wound with a 4-parallel stacked tape. This coil has 5 layers which are connected in series each other. The inductance of the coil is about 84 mH. This paper deals with the design, fabrication and testing of the DC reactor. For this design of the coil, a prototype solenoid coil had been used. Using the experimental result of a prototype solenoid, the number of stacks and the inductance were designed. The winding machine for the HTS solenoid was manufactured. Using this machine, the large-scale HTS solenoid using a Bi-2223 tape was fabricated successfully. Characteristics of the fabricated coil were observed through a measurement of voltage as current transportation.
