Strengthening the Grid: Effect of High-temperature Superconducting Power Technologies on Reliability, Power Transfer Capacity, and Energy Useby Richard S. Silberglitt
Synopses & Reviews
HTS transmission cables produce a beneficial redistribution of power flows when substituted for conventional cables or conductors or when added to the power transmission grid.
The slow growth of power transmission systems and the large growth in demand for power have contributed to higher electricity
