Around the world, projects are demonstrating the technical feasibility of equipment incorporating HTS. The text below highlights several project examples that have made recent progress.
Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), LS Cable & System, and AMSC announced that a HVDC HTS cable was energized on Jeju Island in late 2014. The 500 meter, 80kV DC cable by AMSC's Amperium® HTS wire were successfully tested in KEPCO's electricity grid. KEPCO is planning to make a 1km and 154kV AC cable at the same site.
