HIGH CURRENT BI-2223 CONDUCTORS
WITH INNOVATIVE WIRE GEOMETRY
FOR POWER APPLICATIONS

  

The main objective of this project, that lasted four years,was to maintain Europe's depth of strength in the R&D of high temperature superconductors against the competition from Japan and USA. So that European Industry can take full advantage of a large market in HTS applications. It consist of 3D modelling and characterisation studies to aid the design of better geometries and the conductor benefits.

  

The EPFL was active in the modelling of cables and characterisation of equivalent circuit. Our objective was to develope 2D and 3D models to compute current density, field distribution and AC losses in Bi-2223 conductors.
