Superconductor Technologies to Deliver Conductus (R) 2G HTS Wire to Leading HTS Cable Provider

US based Superconductor Technologies has announced that it will supply the Conductus 2G High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) wire to a leading provider of HTS power transmission cable for the demonstration of superconducting high power transmission cable which is due to be completed by the end of 2012.

Superconducting High Power Transmission Cables transmit electric current 5-10 times of the electric current produced by traditional aluminium or copper cables. These power cables are ideal for areas that have high current loads such as densely populated urban cities where the cost of construction for low-capacity cables may be high. High Power Transmission Cables can be used where issues regarding availability of substations, high load connections and absence of rights of way are present.

According to the CEO of Superconducting Technologies, the company recently produced a wire sample which had the ability to maintain a current of more than 500 A/cm width at a temperature of 77° K. This current was achieved with a cable measuring a thickness of 2 µ. This sample wire was produced at the company’s facility at Austin. It is expected by both the companies that once demonstration project is completed, a higher standard for HTS power transmission cable performance will be achieved.
