Development and Demonstration of a High Temperature Superconducting Power Transmission Cable System
American Superconductor Corporation and its partners, Pirelli Cable Corporation and the Electric Power Research Institute, are developing a commercially viable high-temperature superconducting power transmission cable. In this phase of the program, two multistrand conductor assemblies will be made to verify the Bi-2223 HTS power transmission cable design. Six thousand meters of superconducting wire in tape form has been manufactured for the first multistrand conductor assembly (MCA). This tape has been thoroughly tested and results have exceeded the requirements for the first MCA. Some of the test results that are reported include critical current, mechanical properties, and environmental durability.
