Superconductor fault current limiter (SFCL) is an effective device to suppress high fault currents. This paper presents a comparative study of resistive and inductive fault current limiters from transient stability point of view.  Appropriate location and type of the limiters in a HV substation is selected by a qualitative approach based on the equal area criterion. Study system is simulated by DIgSILENT software to verify the qualitative analysis.
