Performance of Superconducting Generators with Different Topologies under Fault Conditions

  This paper compares the short-circuit performance of superconducting (SC) generators with three different topologies, i.e., iron-cored stator and rotor, iron-cored stator and air-cored rotor, and air-cored stator and rotor. The analysis is based on three-phase short-circuit fault, and finite element analysis is used for simulation. Following the introduction of specifications of generators, the short-circuit performances of different topologies are analyzed and compared, with the field winding excited by voltage and current excitation sources, respectively. It shows that the short-circuit performance can be improved by limiting the field current.
