Research field superconducting power engineering applications

At ITEP, initial demonstrators and prototypes are being developed for novel superconducting power engineering applications, with a focus on increasing resource and energy efficiency. These include high-performance and compact AC and DC power lines, energy-efficient and compact transformers, superconducting magnetic energy storage devices, and short-circuit current-limiting equipment. Other research focuses include the development of new simulation tools for calculating the complex electromagnetic behavior of high-temperature superconductors and the real-time integration of novel components and equipment using a high-performance power hardware-in-the-loop laboratory.

The research work is concentrated on the following research topics:
