Peter Cheetham's submission to the 2016 Art In Stem Research Exhibit


The Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS) is developing novel cryogenic dielectric materials and designs for High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) power applications. It is envisioned that HTS power cables would replace conventional cables in applications where efficiency, space, and weight are limiting design factors. Research and development efforts at CAPS and elsewhere have demonstrated the technical feasibility and benefits of gaseous helium (GHe) cooled HTS power cables for shipboard applications.
