SUPERCONDUCTIVE MAGNETIC ENERGY STORAGE FOR ELECTRIC UTILITY LOAD LEVELING. Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • An assessment of the value of superconductive magnetic energy storage (SMES) for electric utilities is given, with the Wisconsin utility electric power system as an example. It is shown that SMES is superior to all othe forms of energy storage in regard to efficiency of storage, speed for response and amount of energy which can be economically cycled through storage.
