The only one-stop reference to design, analysis, andmanufacturing concepts for power devices utilizing HTS.
High temperature superconductors (HTS) have been used forbuilding many devices for electric grids worldwide and for largeship propulsion motors for the U.S. Navy. And yet, there has beenno single source discussing theory and design issues relating topower applications of HTS until now. This book providesdesign and analysis for various devices and includes examples ofdevices built over the last decade.

Starting with a complete overview of HTS, the subsequentchapters are dedicated to specific devices: cooling and thermalinsulation systems; rotating AC and DC machines; transformers;fault current limiters; power cables; and Maglev transport. Asapplicable, each chapter provides a history of the device,principles, configuration, design and design challenges,prototypes, and manufacturing issues, with each ending with asummary of the material covered. The design analysis and designexamples provide critical insight for readers to successfullydesign their own devices. Original equipment manufacturer (OEM)designers, industry and utilities users, universities and defenseservices research groups, and senior/postgraduate engineeringstudents and instructors will rely on this resource.

"HTS technology reduces electric losses and increases theefficiency of power equipment. This book by Swarn Kalsi, a leadingexpert on the HTS subject, provides a survey of the HTS technologyand the design rules, performance analyses, and manufacturingconcepts for power application-related devices. It comparesconventional and HTS technology approaches for device design andprovides significant examples of devices utilizing the HTStechnology today. The book is useful for a broad spectrum ofprofessionals worldwide: students, teaching staff, and OEMdesigners as well as users in industry and electricutilities."
