Abstract

Several groups working in the field of power transmission using superconducting cables have proposed the use of flexible cables [1,2]. In these cables, the insulation between the inner and outer conductors is a dielectric tape; at the operating temperature, the interstices between the tapes become impregnated by helium coolant.
