In this paper we present an application of a fault current limiter in the distribution network, to minimise the peak current during the fault condition. This application considers a single fault current limiting action. Series impedance is utilized to adjust the amplitude of the fault current limiting. The performance of the load with the impedance and load in series is analysed.
