Description/Abstract

The paper provides an overview of power applications of High Temperature Superconductivity (HTS) with emphasis on superconducting transformers. Properties of available HTS materials are reviewed and modelling aspects briefly introduced. A conceptual design of a 240MVA HTS grid autotransformer is summarised and principal features discussed. The economics of parallel operation is addressed. Finally, details of a small HTS demonstrator built and tested at Southampton University are provided. This is a slightly modified version of the paper presented at ARWtr 2004.
