AbstractThe Air Force is currently pursuing the development of high temperature superconducting generators. Coated YBCO superconductor tape is a strong candidate to enable this application. These generators for the Air Force will operate up to several hundred hertz. This SBIR Phase I investigates construction of racetrack rotor coils with standard and patterned YBCO coated conductor tapes. This Phase I will investigate winding techniques, stress, and insulation to fabricate racetrack coils. This information will enable us to model, design, and develop larger YBCO racetrack rotor coils for demonstration generators.
