In this paper, power quality improvement by using a new structure of non superconducting fault current limiter (NSFCL) is discussed. This structure prevents voltage sags on Point of Common Coupling (PCC) just after fault occurrence, because of its fast operation. On the other hand, previously used structures produce harmonics on load voltage and have ac losses in normal operation. New structure has solved this problem by using dc voltage source. The proposed structure is simulated using PSCAD/EMTDC software and simulation results are presented to validate the effectiveness of this structure.
