The design, fabrication and tests of three high temperature superconductor (HTS) coils for a rectifier-type model fault current limiter (FCL) were presented. The field distributions in the coil were numerically analysed by FEM. Based on the field distributions and the strong anisotropic characteristics of Bi2223/Ag tape, the HTS coils were designed and fabricated. The inner diameter and the height of the coils were 80 mm and 94 mm, respectively. Each of the coils consisted of 8 double pancakes. Every double pancake consisted of 103 turns with 35 meters of Bi-2223/Ag tape. After the characteristics of the coils were tested in liquid nitrogen, three of the coils were assembled in their nonmetallic-material cryostats and works with the model FCL.
