The goal of the project is to investigate the potential use of high temperature superconductors in the electric power sector. The technological possibilities of using superconductors in power cables for transmission and distribution will be examined experimentally based on a 30 m long prototype power cable by year 2000. The cable under design and construction is made with a room temperature dielectric design ie. the electrical insulation is placed outside the cryostat. In connection with the design and manufacturing technologies of the superconducting tapes, experimental and numerical research on the mechanical processing of superconducting metal/ceramic composites is being carried out at IPT. The aim of this work is to identify the optimum design and properties of the High Temperature Superconducting BSCCO/Ag tapes and to produce optimised tapes by applying new manufacturing methods and optimising conventional processes.
