Fault current limiting technology can be embedded within power cable systems
An FCL cable can be used to connect existing substations, enabling power sharing between regions. This is a compelling proposition for utilities in that it ensures system redundancy for critical urban infrastructure, increases system reliability, enables load sharing and mitigates power disruptions caused by environmental or human factors.
Thank you Barrygeo for filling in the board buffoon about one potential use for hts cables.
Just a few days ago you were the worlds biggest doofus for mentioning hts cables.
Now he is parroting what you enlightened him about
The resistive SFCL from Nexans and AMSC is an ultrafast, automatic,
reusable solution that does not restrict or impair the operation of the
power system during normal operation, and limits fault currents
starting with the first half-cycle peak.
Resistive SFCLs have essentially zero insertion impedance under
normal conditions, eliminating steady-state losses, voltage drop, and
other negative system impacts associated with the introduction of
steady-state impedance. During a fault, the system becomes highly
resistive. The effect is an immediate reduction in fault current
magnitude, including the first half-cycle peak. After the fault is
cleared, the SFCL returns to service, ready for the next event.
SFCLs allow for more secure and reliable grid operations
