Title: Cryogenic engineering problems in the development of superconducting power transmission lines

Abstract

The successful operation of the superconducting power transmission line requires the simultaneous development of a cryogenic refrigeration system and cryogenic enclosure in addition to the obvious requirement of a satisfactory cable and its integration into an external power transmission system. The requirements for the cryogenic system originate with the temperature requirements of the cable which are in turn dictated by the superconductor properties. In addition to allowable heat leaks and thermal expansion questions, the cryogenic engineer must also address the problems of electrical and thermal transients, system cooldown, and nonsteady state operation.
