Multiplex Superconducting Transmission Line for green power consolidation on a Smart Grid Conference Paper uri icon


  • Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd. A multiplex superconducting transmission line (MSTL) is being developed for applications requiring interconnection of multi-MW electric power generation among a number of locations. MSTL consists of a cluster of many 2- or 3-conductor transmission lines within a coaxial cryostat envelope. Each line operates autonomously, so that the interconnection of multiple power loads can be done in a failure-tolerant network. Specifics of the electrical, mechanical, and cryogenic design are presented. The consolidation of transformation and conditioning and the failure-tolerant interconnects have the potential to offer important benefit for the green energy components of a Smart Grid.
