We are looking forward to seeing you at Powergen Booth 10138

As power demands grow, fault currents become a larger-than-ever hindrance to achieving stable, consistent power quality. Applied Materials has developed innovative Fault Current Limiter solutions to address this challenge.

  • Fault Current Limiters
    We offer transmission and distribution class fault current limiting technology that leverages superconducting and solid state technologies....

  • As demand for electricity increases, utilities around the world are adding capacity by increasing generation. This additional generation is becoming more decentralized with the incorporation of co-generators, independent power  producers and alternative energy sources such as wind and solar. The interconnectedness of the electrical grid is necessary to provide redundancy and improved reliability. As the energy requirement of the customer base increases, more generation is added and the fault current levels in the existing grid rise dramatically. This puts undue strain on the infrastructure and increases the threat of potential outages.

    According to the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), “Under increased power flow conditions on existing assets, managing fault currents is crucial in order to avoid malfunctioning and damage of equipment as well as to increase system reliability.”





    Applied’s FCLs use state-of-the-art technology and a

    modular design approach to allow easy configuration.

    Applied Materials has two solutions addressing

    different segments of the grid market:

    Superconducting FCL (SCFCL) using

    superconductors for high voltages from

    11kV to 400kV

    Solid State FCL (SSFCL) using solid state

    electronics for voltages from 6kV to 45kV

    Both FCLs work with normal currents ~3500Amps

    and are capable of handling faults exceeding 100kA.
