Superconductors in Applications Some practical Aspects Abstract
A high transition temperature is not the only factor we look for in new superconductors. Power applications require good current carrying capacity and magnetic fields. Further, for commercial success; acceptable costs, tested durability, effective cost reduction should be there among others. The paper examines a number of superconductors starting with NbTi. The applications and potentials of the superconductors are studied. It is proposed that a stationary superconducting direct-current-field winding may increase the reliability of the generator in large offshore wind turbines. A power conditioning system consisting of a Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) which can be used to smooth out differences between output power of a generator and power loads is considered as an example of practical use of superconductors. Cryo-refrigeration and manufacturing process can be advanced further to reduce the cost of the superconductors and make it practically more feasible.
