Guide for Fault Current Limiter (FCL) Testing of FCLs Rated above 1000 V AC
|Publication Date:||5 December 2015|
This guide describes the testing of fault current limiters (FCLs) operating on condition-based impedance increase for AC systems 1000 V and above. This guide does not include constant impedance series reactors and single fuses. (For standards specific to these fault current limiting devices, see IEEE Std C57.16™1,2,3 and IEEE Std C37.46™ [B14]4).
NOTE-Testing of FCL load current interrupting capabilities are not addressed in this guide and may be discussed between user and manufacturer.5
This guide provides guidelines for testing of fault current limiters (FCLs) operating on condition-based impedance increase for AC systems 1000 V and above.
