The article reports on the successful completion of the testing of an inductive superconducting fault current limiter (iSFCL) from Bruker Energy & Supercon Technologies Inc. and Schneider Electric Sachsenwerk GmbH. It states that the testing was done under expected operating conditions at the University of Braunschweig's Institute for High-Voltage Engineering and Electrical Energy Systems. According to the author, the device functioned as expected in over 100 triggered short circuits.
