As the application of low-voltage-direct-current system increases, fault analysis in the low-voltage-direct-current system has essential because the fault response has different from the conventional AC distribution system. Especially, the fault current by the discharge current of the capacitor in the low-voltage-direct-current distribution system has very large compared with the conventional AC distribution system. Therefore, this paper proposed the application of the superconducting fault

As one of the protected methods against fault current, the superconducting fault current limiter which could quickly limit the fault current has been noticed as an attractive method. However, the protection relay may malfunction such as over current relay, selective protection relay due to limiting fault current by applying superconducting fault current limiter. Therefore, in this paper proposed a solution to malfunction problem of the protection relay using the voltage components of the high temperature superconductivity. This paper verified the effect of the proposed method through test modelling and PSCAD/EMTDC .
