Sumitomo Electric Supplies Its Type HT-CA Wire to the AmapaCity HTS Cable Project in Germany

Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. has recently started the production of HT-CA DI-BSCCO high temperature superconducting (HTS) wire for the AmapaCity HTS cable project in Germany. The AmapaCity HTS cable project is funded partly by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, and led by a German utility company RWE Deutschland, HTS cable manufacturer Nexans, and major research institution Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The cable used in the project is a 1 km long HTS cable with a rating of 40 MVA at 10 kV and will be installed in the downtown area of Essen, Germany. The use of…

Hitachi Cable Announces the Development of Nb3Sn Superconducting Wire

Cross-section of the Nb3Sn superconducting wire developed this time Hitachi Cable is announcing the successful development of a niobium-tin (Nb3Sn) superconducting wire*1 with about 1.5 times higher critical current density*2, achieved through the use of an internal-tin process*3 and single-stacking structure. Nb3Sn superconducting wires are widely used for superconducting magnet systems generating strong magnetic fields in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) analytical systems and nuclear fusion facilities such as the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER). They are manufactured mainly using a method called bronze-process. In the bronze-process, the billet incorporating many niobium (Nb) cores in bronze (Cu-Sn alloy) is processed into…
