Electrical system is changing to smart grid which includes the distributed generations with reusable energy sources in these days. The distributed generations are environmentally friendly and have no concern with depletion problem. But dispatching distributed generations can cause an increase of the fault current. Resistive type superconducting fault current limiter is one of the candidates of solution for the large fault problem in smart grid. In this paper, a design method for the wire length of fault current limiter and the result of short circuit test for small scale modules considering system resistance are introduced.
