The proposed program will develop dielectrics for dc superconducting power transmission cables that are cooled with cryogenic helium gas. The Dielectrics will be sealed again helium gas penetration and allow for an operating voltage of 12 kV in a pressure of 2 MPa at 50 K. The dielectrics will be designed for use with all helium facing components of power transmission systems based on CORC cables. The program will deliver a 2-pole dc power transmission cable system rated at 4 kA per phase, 12 kV and a power rating of 48 MW.
