High voltage cables up to 220 kV
While investigating new cables for power transport, we have realised a superconductor prototype and the accessories necessary for its installation.
Superconductivity is the elimination of the electrical resistance in the flow of current. A highly innovative technology applied also to electrical infrastructure for power generators and transportation of electricity. The various applications of superconductors include also power cables for energy distribution. The advantage of superconductivity is a great increase in current carrying capacity according to the size of the conductor, with pratically no losses. Tratos Cavi has designed and produced a prototype of superconductor cable cooled with liquid nitrogen (77 Kelvin equivalent to -196° C) and related accessories.
