A novel approach to large scale applications of superconductivity: The concept of an all superconducting mini power plant

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The widespread use of energy-efficient, environmental-friendly and secure local power stations, or mini power plants (MPPs) has become a world-wide trend. Disperse power generation has been developed against centralized generation in central power stations/plants with a particular view on the utilization of renewable energy sources. Exceeding the stage of the development of individual superconducting power devices (SPDs), more and more concern is being focused around all superconducting (AS) integrated systems (ASIS) consisting of a set of individual SPDs being integrated into one system with a common cryogenic environment. Such a system possesses with substantial additional benefits compared to and exceeding those of the individual SPDs. The concept of AS MPP model of the order of 10 kW developed by the author's team is presented in this paper.
