Strumoobmezhuyuchyy reaktor z nadprovidnym kombinovanym ekranom [Superconducting current-limiting reactor combined screen].
A superconducting high-temperature short-circuit current limiter is an alternative to the use of conventional current-limiting reactors. According to the structural features, two main concepts of the superconducting current limiter can be distinguished: resistive and inductive, and other circuitry based on them [1, 2].
The value of nominal power of current-limiting reactor is determined regard to [6]
The magnetic field of current-limiting reactor often exceeds maximum permissible levels near the reactor.
Current-limiting reactor creates in surrounding space the intensive magnetic field which exceeds maximum permissible level for human and equipment.
Serving as a buffer between the university and utility systems are two custom-made, dry-type, air-core, current-limiting reactors. Brand new and installed side by side in May 2004, they are designed to limit the effects of short circuits, thus reducing the stress on buses, insulators, circuit breakers and other high-voltage devices.
