High Temperature Superconducting Power Apparatus

High Temperature Superconducting Power Apparatus

Interest in the application of high temperature superconductivity (HTS) to power devices is growing, as a result of major advances in processing materials and the commercial availability of HTS tapes.  Our interest in superconductivity dates back to the early 1980s, when we built and tested a model Low Temperature Superconducting (LTS) generator with liquid helium cooling at 4K. Our current focus is on application of HTS to power apparatus.  Our recent work has established our position as one of the world leaders in the application of HTS technology, and includes:

HTS cables and terminations:

HTS transformers:

HTS generators:
