Superconductor Technologies Inc. Meets Customer Current Carrying Performance Requirements Of 2G HTS Wire For Superconducting Applications In High Magnetic Field

Stocks in this article: SCON

The size and weight of the generator are the current limiting factors in efforts to increase the amount of output power generated by each wind turbine. Turbine manufacturers believe that building a generator utilizing 2G HTS wire will reduce its size and weight sufficiently to enable the development of 10 MW and larger wind turbines. In fact, many believe that the benefit of utilizing superconducting wire starts at wind turbines with 5MW of output power. According to Emerging Energy Research (EER), large wind turbines (5MW+) deployed in 2016 are expected to deliver 2,731 MW of worldwide offshore capacity at an annual cost of over $5 billion. EER expects an annual offshore production increase of 5,377 MW in 2020 at a cost in excess of $10 billion.
