It has been a quarter of a century since the discovery of superconducting materials known as “high-temperature superconductors” (HTS) in 1986 by Bednorz and Mueller. HTS materials have opened up new options for direct current (DC) power cable applications. This chapter first describes the different key components for DC superconducting ...
