the demand for electricity is increasing rapidly and demand for power is running ahead of supply. The short-circuit capacity increases with the growth of interconnections in electrical systems. The system parameters such as voltage and current are analyzed during normal operating conditions and also during various fault conditions. The fault current limiter can be effectively used to limit the increase in over current during the fault condition. A Fault Current Limiter (FCL) is a revolutionary power grid device that limits the problems due to increase in fault current levels. It reduces prospective fault currents to a lower manageable level. The Super conducting Fault Current Limiter (SFCL) is one of the promising technologies to unravel fault current problem, because of its effective fault current limiting and quick recovery characteristic. The microgrid system with distributed generation during a three phase fault condition were simulated with and without SFCL in MATLAB/SIMULINK environment.
