A new concept for the storage of large amounts of electric energy that can be delivered in milliseconds at multi megamp current levels, is described. The MACE (magnetic cable energy) uses a multi-turn superconducting cable loop to store the electric energy. The primary superconducting cable is very closely coupled inductively to a single-turn normal metal… CONTINUE READING
