Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 35)


The possibilities of using superconductor magnetic energy storages for the enhancement of reliability in the operation of power systems and power equipment are studied as well as the improvement of their performance. Some results obtained in this field of study at research institutions of the USSR are described. Information is provided on the planned building of an experimental facility comprising a 107–108 J superconductor storage and a 30 MW converter under the research program of the USSR State Committee for Science and Technology and Academy of Sciences.
