dc.description.abstractThe Powerful CB project is a collaboration between UK Power Networks (UKPN) and ABB to develop and demonstrate, in a pilot, an 11 kV Fault Current Limiting Circuit Breaker, FLCB, in an existing UK Power Networks substation. The FLCB pilot is designed for 12 kV, 2000 A nominal current and will be tested with a prospective fault current of 25 kA. In operation it limits the prospective fault current to maximum 13 kA peak in less than 1 ms after the trip signal.It has been identified that a Fault Current Limiting Circuit Breaker is an attractive alternative compared to upgrading distribution substations when short circuit headroom is shrinking. A hybrid, mechanical and power electronics, fault current limiter concept is presented, which will be built, tested and installed in a London substation during 2019. The fast, compact, low loss and multi-shot FLCB makes it possible to run the distribution system at a higher fault level giving better system stability without the need of a complete upgrade of the substation. At the same time the technology enables more flexible and optimized connection of distributed generation and renewable energy sources, independent of existing fault level headroom.
