Abstract

Voltage sags originated at the transmission level can have a very adverse effect on distributed generators running at distribution levels. A fault current limiter (FCL) can be an effective means to limit the voltage sag impact. This paper presents the main results of a research based on digital simulation and aimed at studying the effectiveness of a FCL to limit the impact of voltage sag on the shaft torque of distributed generators. The sensitivity of the shaft torque to parameters of the FCL, the power system and the fault is analyzed.
