A process for producing technologically useful HTSC wire for application in a prototype HTSC electric motor is proceeding. These fibers are produced continuously and lengths of up to 1.0 meter have been successfully textured. Work this past quarter has advanced our understanding of the relationship between processing conditions, microstructure, electrical characteristics, and improvements in fiber uniformity. BiSCCO ribbon wire was further developed. The development of a robust process for producing a reproducible BiSCCO powder for use as process feedstock have been defined this quarter. Emerson Electric has designed, constructed, and tested the brushless trapped magnetic flux permanent magnet motor.
