Present State of Alternating Current Superconductors and Its Applications to Power System Apparatus in France
to develop ACSC wires and cables
to demonstrate the feasibility of equipments in the laboratory
to test demonstration machines in operation, and finally
to test prototypes in service.
ACSC wires are industrially produced but wire assemblies are not yet satisfactory.
20 kVA fully SC synchronous generator continues tests,
200 kVA single phase SC transformer has been tested in Marcoussis,
25 kV 200/11000 A fault current limiter has been tested in Lyon.
Evaluations of all these ACSC equipments and small SMES are under way in order to determine aims, costs and duration of the demonstration phases.
Finally, it is likely that demonstrations will take place by the year 2000 especially for fault current limiters, small SMES then synchronous machine.
Commercial equipments could come at the beginning of next century.
