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.



Resilient Electric Grid Project in the United States

Author: Bory Buth/Thursday, July 14, 2016/Categories: Projects

AMSC selected Nexans to design, fabricate and qualify, a medium voltage, HTS cable for AMSC as part of the company's Resilient Electric Grid project in Chicago, Illinois. Utilizing AMSC's Amperium® HTS wire, Nexans will design and fabricate the HTS power cable, including the power cable terminations and a cable splice, for qualification and performance evaluation as part of AMSC's REG program with The Department of Homeland Security. The planned HTS power cable tests are required by electric utilities and will be performed at Nexans' test facility in Hannover, Germany, which is specially equipped to perform tests on superconducting systems for power grids. The qualification of the HTS power cable will represent an important step toward the construction phase of AMSC's REG program in Chicago.
