CORC® FAULT CURRENT LIMITING CABLES AND WIRES

CORC® fault current limiting cables and wires have demonstrated the highest level of current blocking of any HTS cable:
– 70 V/m voltage buildup within 15 ms of fault
– Fast recovery due to the extremely small size of the FCL wire
– No performance degradation even after 100 pulses
