Applications of Superconductivity and Cryogenics in Electric Power Systems

Abstract

Superconductors, cryogenic resistive conductors, structural materials for I cryogenic environments, and equipment for the production and handling of cryogenic I fluids have been developed to a state of availability, economy, and reliability that I applications in many areas appear attractive. One such area in which several applica-tions appear possible is that of electric-power-system technology. This is a particularly attractive area of application because the rapid growth rate of power systems (installed capacity about doubles every decade) continually requires new equipment and affords the opportunity for introducing new technology.
