Vyacheslav Solovyov is a winner of 2015 R&D 100 award

Brookhaven Lab’s aFCL, developed by Vyacheslav Solovyov and Qiang Li of Brookhaven’s Condensed Matter Physics & Materials Science Department, is a novel superconducting fault current limiter (FCL) that can transmit a large amount of electrical energy during the “on” state without any added conduction losses. FCLs are devices that protect grid equipment from fault currents.…
