Abstract – Superconducting fault current limiter is an attractive electronic device to solve the problem of very high fault current in the power system. In this paper, the performance of enhanced system capacity with existing switchgear by superconducting fault current limiter is studied. At first, a resistive type SFCL is modeled in Simulink. A three phase system with a nominal capacity is designed and then it is replaced by higher capacity keeping switchgear unchanged. Finally, the SFCL is introduced in the higher capacity system. Fault current in this system is limited by SFCL to the level of the presented switchgear. Thus, it is revealed that the outstanding current limiting performance of SFCL can be used to limit the fault to the level of the existing switchgear if the system capacity is improved.
