Waukesha Electric partners with SuperPower and UH to build fault current limiting superconducting transformer for Dept. of Energy
Date:12/22/2009

nd tear for circuit breakers and other power equipment in existing substations. This reduces capital equipment costs for replacement or upgrade of such equipment and provides flexibility in routing power during emergency situations.

"We are delighted to partner with Waukesha Electric and SuperPower to add the superconducting transformer, with a unique fault current liming function to the smart grid technology," said Donald Birx, vice president for research at UH. "The University of Houston was the birthplace of high temperature superconductivity in 1987 by Paul Chu and colleagues, with the discovery of YBa2Cu3O7 that broke the liquid nitrogen barrier for superconducting temperature. The Texas Center for Superconductivity at the University of Houston (TCSUH) is the largest university-based center in the world that is focused on superconductor research. With the return of Dr. Venkat Selvamanickam to the University, a strong, world-class applied research program in second-generation high-temperature superconducting (2G HTS) wires has been created."
