For proper application and operation of a SFCL(Superconducting Fault Current Limiter) in distribution systems, the prior investigation of fundamental characteristics and its effects analysis to the systems are very important. A point of view in coordination with recloser in distribution systems, characteristic about quenching and recovering of SFCL should be studied. Especially, its detailed study of recovery characteristic is particularly important to avoid conflict between the SFCL and the recloser. In this paper, the resistive type SFCL and recloser, which used in distribution system, were implemented using EMTP/ATPDraw and MODELS language. To analyze the recovery characteristics of SFCL according to recloser operation in distribution systems, case studies have been simulated and investigated.
