Abstract : With the development of airborne directed energy applications, power generation systems above the megawatt level will be required. Superconducting generators can address this need. Recently, several successful rotating machinery projects demonstrated the practicality and feasibility of the technology using the high temperature superconducting BSCCO wire. With progress in manufacturing long continuous lengths of the superconducting YBCO coated conductors, addition improvement can be made to these superconducting devices. This paper will briefly address the prospects for employment of the YBCO coated conductors in future power machinery demonstrations.
