Title: Terminators for electrical superconductor cable installations

Abstract

A terminator (including a cable fitting which terminates a superconductor cable but which leads, instead of to a lead-out bolt, for example to a standard conductor of an adjoining cable) for an electrical superconductor cable installation has a zone of temperature increase from superconductor to normal conductor in the direction of the terminator longitudinal axis, separated from the zone of electrical field reduction. Advantageously, the temperature increase zone, which contains a heat-exchange system, is disposed outside, preferably below, the terminator external insulator surrounding the normal conductor.
