High temperature superconductor (HTS) cables

S.I. Schlachter and W. Goldacker,     Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany


Many superconductor applications such as rotating machinery, transformers and magnets with low inductance require high current cables with low AC losses. This chapter gives an overview on cabling techniques for the high temperature superconductors (HTS) BSCCO (2212), BSCCO (2223) and (RE)BCO. A short review is given of the basic properties of HTS wires and tapes and the basic requirements of HTS cables for different applications. Cabling concepts for the different HTS materials are presented, and current performance and AC loss behaviour are discussed. After a short description of remaining challenges ...
