Abstract:

This project covers the design, construction, and test of a Superconductive Magnetic Energy Storage SMES Engineering Test Model ETM to demonstrate the feasibility of using SMES technology to provide the prime power for applications requiring large amounts of stored energy. The ETM will be capable of storing 20 Megawatt hours of electrical energy and discharging it at power rates from 10 to 400 MEgawatts. Associated component designs, developmental experiments, trade-off studies, costing studies, impact assessments and implementation planning will also be performed.
