edited by Ziad Melhem

High Temperature Superconductors (HTS) for Energy Applications explores the fundamental principles, design and development of HTS materials and their practical applications in energy systems.

Coverage includes:

  • fundamental issues and developments of particular HTS components
  • design and development of HTS materials and then applications in energy systems
  • use of HTS materials and cabling transmissions, fault alignment limiters, energy storage, generators and motors, fusion and accelerator

Part One describes the fundamental science, engineering and development of particular HTS components such as wires and tapes, cables, coils and magnets and discusses the cryogenics and electromagnetic modelling of HTS systems and materials.

Part Two addresses the types of energy applications in which HTS materials are used, including fault current limiters, power cables and energy storage, as well as their application in rotating machinery for improved electrical efficiencies, and in fusion technologies and accelerator systems where HTS magnets are becoming essential enabling technologies.
