    Abstract

    We present the Ginzburg Landau model for mesoscopic high-Tc superconductors of complex geometry. It is shown that giant vortices can form at boundary defects. The relation between total magnetic flux penetration through the superconductor and the externally applied field is established. This is in turn used in modelling high-Tc superconducting generators proposed for windmills in the project SuperWind (http://www.superwind.dk).
