In a resistive superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL), the electrodynamic force among the YBCO tapes is enormous when experiencing a high short circuit current, which may cause deformation of tapes and damage of their electrical characteristics. The purpose of this paper is to investigate how much electrodynamic force the YBCO tapes can bear. In this paper, an electrodynamic force simulation model is built to simulate the force, which the two parallel tapes experience and their deformation when short-circuit currents of different value flow through. Then we conducted experiments to observe the deformation of the tapes when they are experiencing a short-circuit current and see if the volt-ampere characteristic of the tapes has a noticeable change after that. Combining the results of the simulation and the experiments, we can obtain the electrodynamic force that tapes can bear. The result can guide us to design the layout of the tapes in the SFCL in accordance with the required fault current level.
