由于全球电力需求的增加,故障电流持续威胁着稳定的电网和电力质量。应用材料公司提供了一个行之有效的解决方案来解决这个问题——故障电流限制器(FCL)。

Reliable Power Grids for an Energy Intensive Future

The surging demands for power are here to stay. When fault currents pose a constraint to evacuating more power or cause voltage instability, FCL technology offers a practical solution.

Enabling N+1 or N-1 Redundancy

An FCL with low x/r ratio shunt reactor improves the transient stability of the generators, thus reducing outages while retaining grid stiffness.

Impedance on Demand

FCLs work on the principle of "impedance on demand." There is no impedance during normal operations. Additional impedance becomes active only during a fault condition, thereby reducing the fault current. When the fault condition goes away the system returns to its original condition.
