—fault current limiter, fault currents, non super conductor, and thyristor controlled rectifier
This paper presents controlling the magnitude of fault current by using non super conducting fault current limiter with the help of controlled rectifier. Non superconducting fault current limiter consists of a rectifier and D. C reactor. The diode rectifiers are uncontrollable, to make it as a controllable by replacing the thyristor in place of diode. By providing the suitable gate triggering to the thyristor circuit we can control the magnitude of current in DC reactor. By reduce the magnitude of fault current in a power system, which improve the voltage profile at faulted phase. The proposed NSFCL was simulated and studied with the help of MAT-LAB.
