Since 1999, a Japanese national project to realize commercially feasible SMES for designated applications has been promoted. Model coils for power system stabilization, load fluctuation compensation and frequency control have been fabricated and tested. In this paper, we introduce the present status of the project, including feasibility studies of an HTS SMES.
