This article presents a comparison of inductive and resistive superconducting fault current limiter built with the same length of high temperature superconducting (HTS) tape. The resistive limiter is constructed as a noninductive bifilar winding. The inductive coreless limiter consists of primary winding and secondary shorted winding. Both limiters are connected parallel to the additional Cu primary winding, which helps to reduce the power dissipated in the HTS windings during and after a fault. It also ensures that in cases of an HTS tape failure, the protected circuit will not be disrupted. The limiters are very fast and the first peak is almost equally limited by both types of limiters. © 2002-2011 IEEE.
