Design, build and test a high temperature superconducting demonstration synchronous generator

EPSRC (GR/N21253/01)

Project objectives: 1. Design, build and test a demonstrator generator to assess the potential of HTS technology in electric power applications. 2. Study fundamental problems associated with the use of HTS materials in such applications. 3. Study and optimise heat transfer and refrigeration within a rotating cryostat. 4. Conduct a comprehensive program of tests to assess the performance of HTS tapes under operating conditions. 5. Develop computer simulation models for virtual prototyping. 6. Produce flexible design guidelines for electric power devices using HTS tapes.
