Abstract
ABSTRACT: A Novel Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) system is proposed. The Tai-Yang Research Company (TYRC) of Tallahassee, FL in collaboration with the Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS) also of Tallahassee, FL proposes in Phase 1 to design a prototype SMES system with significantly enhanced energy storage capacity over earlier SMES concepts. With this design the potential exists for SMES to surpass batteries, flywheels and ultra-capacitors as a viable, cost-effective option for energy storage. BENEFIT: SMES, fusion magnets, motors, large-bore high field solenoid coils such as detctor magnets.
