For the last few years the authors have been involved in the design and development of different topologies of magnetic current limiter (MCL). The small scale laboratory models have been fabricated and experiments were conducted. The simulated performance obtained from the tableau approach based on lumped parameter model shows discrepancy with the experiment. This paper describes the necessity of electromagnetic field computation which clearly shows the discrepancy between the observed and the simulation results, which can be attributed to a non uniform flux distribution in the core.
