Abstract

YBCO superconducting wire has a relatively low decrease in power distribution at high temperatures and under a high magnetic field. A high-intensity substrate is used for the wire, so the wire has high machine characteristics. Therefore, it is expected that this wire can be used for large-scale high magnetic field coils. Here, coordination between the SMES system for 100 MVA/2 GJ class load fluctuation compensating was conducted using IBAD/CVD- YBCO wire. The SMES system includes a toroidal type YBCO coil consisting of 180 compact, high magnetic field multi-unit coils, a large coil cooling system that uses the conduction cooling method, which does not use a refrigerant medium, and a multi-cell power converter that achieves multi-unit coil connection with relatively low current and low voltage. Studies were conducted for each individual device and for the whole system. Based on the study plan in this paper, it has become possible to develop and coordinate each device of the 100 MVA/2 GJ class power system load fluctuation compensation SMES system using YBCO wire, which up until now had seem impossible as an actual system.
