In this paper, three-phase short-circuit at the terminals of a superconducting synchronous generator is simulated by using MATLAB. In this simulation, a single screened superconducting generator directly connected to power system is considered and two operating cases are investigated: the first case is that the fault is permanent and the second case is that the fault is cleaned by a protection system. To show the effects of this short-circuit and the performance of the superconducting synchronous generator for both cases, the deviations of armature momentary currents, angular speed and field current are plotted. In order to compare the obtained results, the present simulations for the both cases mentioned above are repeated for a conventional synchronous generator having the same rating as considered superconducting counterpart, which is directly connected to power system, and the deviations of the same variables as considered for the superconducting synchronous generator are also given in the paper.
