The power burden of high-$T_c$ superconducting (HTSC) elements comprising superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) using magnetic coupling of shunt reactors was analyzed. The magnetically coupled shunt reactors play a role in distributing the even power burden between HTSC elements comprising the SFCL, which contributes to the effective current limiting and recovery characteristics of the SFCL. It was confirmed through the comparative analysis on the SFCLs with both the magnetically coupled and the magnetically uncoupled shunt reactors that the magnetically coupled shunt reactors could improve the SFCL's performance by equalizing the power burden of HTSC elements.
