The fabrication and development of a novel compact three phase magnetic current limiter consisting of permanent magnets (PM) and saturable cores is described in this paper. Simulation results using the tableau approach are presented for varying operating conditions. Experimental results are in good agreement with the simulation results. The proposed current limiter has potential in moderately low voltage applications.
