As a part of the 21st Century Frontier R&D Program in Korea being performed from 2004, a non-inductive winding type superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) is being developed. The target of the second year In phase II of the program is to develop a 220 V/300 A class non-inductive winding type SFCL as a prototype for a 13.2 kV/630 A class, the final goal of phase II. This SFCL has three solenoid type non-inductively wound coils in series using a 2G high temperature superconducting (HTS) wire and it was tested in sub-cooled nitrogen of 65 K, 1 atm. A coil which is composed of four parallel windings in a bobbin and winding directions are opposite to have non-inductive characteristics. Three coils were connected in series and the total length of 108 m of 2G HTS wire was used. Short-circuit tests were performed at applied voltage of 220 V and the SFCL limited the fault current to a few kA extents at the tests. Recovery time of the SFCL was measured after short-circuit tests.
