High-temperature superconducting magnet motor demonstration


A superconducting field winding, assembled with coils constructed with Bismuth 2223 HTS wire, has been successfully operated in an electric homopolar motor. At a field winding temperature of 4.2 K, the motor produced 125 kW of output power. At a temperature of 28 K, the motor power developed was 91 kW. These measured power levels are the highest that have… (More)
