Applications

HTS power cables

Modern HTS tapes have a current carrying capacity which is 200-300 times higher than that of traditional electrical conductors – copper and aluminum. This helps to produce very compact power cables which can substitute overhead transmission lines.

Main advantages

> The transfer of high power electrical current in large cities
> Optimization of the grid infrastructure (lowering the class of voltage of transmission lines, reducing the number of substations 


HTS Power Cable Characteristics

  • Effective
    Low impedance – low level of losses
  • Compact
    The transfer of 100s of MVA with a cable system only 30 cm in diameter
  • Ecology-friendly
    Does not impair the environment, can be placed underground
  • Long life
    The aging of dielectric isolation is extremely slow at low working temperatures
  • Fire-safe
