(electricity)
A limiter which is essentially a transformer, with its primary normal conducting coil connected in series to the line to be protected, while the secondary side is a superconducting tube (that is, a one-turn coil). Also known as inductive superconducting fault-current limiter; shorted-transformer superconducting fault-current limiter.
