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.
