Low cost superconductor boosts power connections
A superconducting cable developed by scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) enables the almost loss-free transport of electrical energy. The scientists see potential applications in connecting of wind farms, DC supply on ships and for future electric aircraft. The best thing: The cable can be manufactured industrially in a simple way.
power grid and power lines made leaner. If liquid hydrogen is used to cool the CroCo, chemical and electrical energy can even be transported together. "In principle, a CroCo can be used wherever little space is available but a lot of electrical energy needs to be transported," says KIT scientist Dr. Walter Fietz. It is therefore also conceivable that it could be used in ships and even in future all-electric aircraft.
