Several critical design, fabrication and operational issues must be resolved in order for the new high Tc materials to be transitioned into useful conductor forms. This paper is an initial progress report of a NYSIS sponsored assessment of design requirements for a high Tc technologically useful conductor for various energy related applications. Initial results indicate that a tape conductor configuration provides sufficient mechanical support and thermal stability to function at higher operating temperatures than the conventional low temperature superconductors.
