Superconductive Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) for Electric Utilities
SMES system designs, component developments, and utility usage studies at Wisconsin will be reviewed. The SMES design criteria for superfluid helium cooled NbTi solenoids is outlined and compared to the probable design criteria for the future potential use of high Tc ceramic conductor solenoids cooled by liquid nitrogen.
