Salvucci, V and Ainslie, M and Baba, J and Morandi, A (2009) Experimental investigation of quench phenomena in YBCO thin films for SFCL applications. IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, 19. pp. 1930-1933. ISSN 1051-8223Full text not available from this repository.
Superconducting Fault Current Limiters (SFCLs) are regarded as key components for modern power systems. The progress in the development of YBCO thin films opens new perspectives in the design of these devices. In this paper, the quenching phenomenon in YBCO thin films is investigated experimentally, in order to gain the proper technical know-how suitable for the design of resistive type SFCLs. In particular, the origin of the quenching, as well as the propagation dynamics within a YBCO tape, is investigated for different input current waveforms. The role of a parallel-connected protective resistance on the quench dynamic is also studied. © 2009 IEEE.
