Superconductors in the Power Grid : Materials and Applications, Hardback Book

Superconductors in the Power Grid : Materials and Applications Hardback

Edited by C. (Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse, France) Rey

Part of the Woodhead Publishing Series in Energy series



Superconductors offer high throughput with low electric losses and have the potential to transform the electric power grid.

Transmission networks incorporating cables of this type could, for example, deliver more power and enable substantial energy savings.

Superconductors in the Power Grid: Materials and Applications provides an overview of superconductors and their applications in power grids.

Sections address the design and engineering of cable systems and fault current limiters and other emerging applications for superconductors in the power grid, as well as case studies of industrial applications of superconductors in the power grid.
