To handle the so-called black start fault contingency, Energy to Power Solutions proposes the use of a novel hybrid cable design. The cable would be designed to handle the full 100 % electric power load under normal operating and battle conditions (i.e. a fully/partially functioning cryogenic cooling system operating at cryogenic temperatures ~ 50-60 K), and capable of handling 30 % of the rated power per the requirements of the N15A-T016 solicitation operating at warm ambient temperatures where high temperature superconductors would not normally operate.
