Abstract

It has been a quarter of a century since the discovery of superconductive materials known as “high temperature superconductors.” These materials have opened up new options for direct current (DC) power cable applications. This chapter first describes the different key components for DC superconducting cables and discusses their performance. These cables offer very flexible solutions to transfer very high ...
