New SCARLET publication
We are starting the new year with a new publication: a scientific article entitled “MgB2-based MVDC Superconducting Power Cable in Liquid Hydrogen for Hybrid Energy Distribution“ was accepted for publication in the journal IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, after having been presented at the European Conference on Applied Superconductivity last September.
The article discusses the distribution of both hydrogen and bulk electricity in the same infrastructure by using a hydrogen-cooled superconducting cable, as will be demonstrated in SCARLET. After a description of the rationale and benefits of such a hybrid system, various possible applications and a first distribution system are presented. Furthermore, the different cable components already designed are discussed along with the research challenges and general strategy for the cable development.
