Abstract: 
To select the type and value of the impedance of fault current limiters (FCLs) for power network designers, we introduce a new method to calculate the optimum value of FCL impedance depending on its position in the network. Due to the complexity of its impedance, the costs of both real and imaginary parts of FCL impedance are considered. The optimization of FCL impedance is based on a goal function that maximizes the reduction of the fault current while minimizing the costs. While the position of FCL in the network has an effect on the calculation of the optimum impedance value, the method for selecting FCL location is not the focus of this study. The proposed method for optimizing FCL impedance can be used for every network that has symmetrical and/or asymmetrical faults. We use a 14-bus IEEE network as an example to explain the process. The optimum FCL impedance used in this network is calculated by considering the vast range of costs for both real and imaginary parts of FCL impedance.

电力系统中对称和/或不对称故障的限流器阻抗优化新方法

概要:为给电力网络设计者选择故障限流器(fault currentl imiters,FCLs)的阻抗类型和阻值,提出一种基于其在网络中的位置计算最佳FCL阻值的新方法。由于阻抗的复杂性,需同时考虑FCL阻抗实部和虚部的代价。FCL阻抗优化的目标函数,是以最小化代价最大限度减少故障电流。虽然最佳FCL阻抗值的计算受其在网络中位置的影响,但选取FCL位置的方法并非本文重点。该FCL阻抗优化方法可用于任何具有对称和/或不对称故障的网络。以一个14总线IEEE网络为例解释该过程。该网络采用的最优FCL阻抗是同时考虑FCL阻抗实部和虚部的大范围代价计算得到的。
