Project Details


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 of the cable experimental work is being carried out at ELTEK to dimension the former, arrangement of the superconducting tapes, AC losses, critical current, cryostat, electrical insulation, superconducting cable end terminations and closed cycle cooling system.
The goal is to construct a 10 m long cable model and test it in 1998 and a 3 phase 30 m cable model by year 2000.
