In today’s technological world, electrical energy is one of the most important forms of energy and is needed directly or indirectly in almost every field. Increase in the demand and consumption of electrical energy leads to increase in the system fault levels, and it crosses the rated capacity of the existing circuit breakers . One solution to this problem is to use a current limiting device in the system. In view of this, it is desirable to introduce a reliable means of limiting the fault currents so that the circuit breakers open at lower fault currents without any damage. One of them is Superconducting Fault Current Limiter.It appears to be the most attractive option for such purposes. Superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) based on high temperature Resistive type is an enabling technology for the extensive fault current limitation when compared to Conventional circuit breakers. In this paper overview of the SFCL, modeling and simulation Studies of a 3.3kV single phase resistive type SFCL, to predict the performance of the Resistive type Superconducting Fault Current Limiter (SFCL) using MATLAB/SIMULINK is presented.
