We have started a project to develop a 100 m 3-core 66 kV/1 kA/114 MVA high temperature superconducting (HTSC) cable system to certify the manufacturing capability and the practicability of an HTSC cable system for use as actual power system equipment. The cable is designed based on the results of a 30 m, 3-core test cable. The cable is composed of a conductor and a shield wound with Ag-Mn sheathed Bi-2223 tapes, electrical insulation with polypropylene laminated paper impregnated with liquid nitrogen and thermal insulation with co-axial corrugated pipes. The three cores are housed in this thermally insulated pipe. The cable has been developed and laid at CRIEPIs test site and long-term tests have been under way since June.
