Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Fault current limiter based on permanent magnet biased saturation (PMFCL) is believed to foresee considerable application potentials in power systems due to its obvious advantages both technically and economically. In this paper, a new equivalent model of the PMFCL is presented based on a coupled field-circuit modeling methodology. Firstly, the governing equations of the PMFCL are obtained based on equivalent magnetic circuit analysis. Then the analysis of magnetic field of the PMFCL is done by FEM. Finally, a coupled equation for the PMFCL is presented to be solved. The simulation results compared with that of prototype experiments indicate that, the proposed modeling scheme provides theoretical basis for further comprehensive optimization of the PMFCL.
