Cheap to make and easy to shape, Magnesium Di-boride (MgB2) throws the field of applied superconductivity wide open. Great efforts have been made to develop a superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) using MgB2. With a superconducting transition temperature of 39 K, MgB2 can be conveniently cooled with commercial cryocoolers. A cryogenic desktop test… CONTINUE READING
