Siemens SCFL in Germany’s Stadwerke Grid

Author: Bory Buth/Wednesday, July 20, 2016/Categories: Projects

A superconducting fault current limiter with a rated current of 817 amperes will secure the connection between Stadtwerke Augsburg’s grid and an industrial company. When in operation in early 2016, an energy load with a maximum feed-in power of 15 megawatts will be fed from the company’s grid into the Stadwerke’s grid. Without appropriate measures, this load would exceed the permissible short-circuit level. During the field test, a short-circuit limiting reactor, which will be used as a backup solution, will be bypassed by a superconducting fault current limiter.
