As published by the Daily Camera: Boulder’s Advanced Conductor Technologies looks to revolutionize high-temp cables By Zach Whittaker For the Camera Posted: 08/05/2012 06:00:00 PM MDT Many know Boulder as a hub for technology and innovation. A new company, Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC, is hoping to further solidify that reputation.
As published by the University of Colorado Technology Transfer Office: Advanced Conductor Technologies to develop CU high performance superconducting cable technology. Thinner, more versatile superconducting cables have potential for high-energy density power transmission, high-field magnets and energy storage. BOULDER, Colo., July 18, 2012 – Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC and the
Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC together with researchers from the Center for Advanced Power Systems at Florida State University have received a Phase I SBIR award from the Navy. The grant titled “Superconducting Cable Connections” is for developing reliable cable connections for shipboard cables. Technical Abstract The Navy has expressed interest
Record current of 4101 A at 19.8 T background field achieved in a high-temperature superconducting cable
A high-temperature superconducting cable was successfully tested in a background field of 19.8 T at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory. The CORC cable was wound from 40 superconducting tapes and had an outer diameter of only 7.5 mm. The cable carried a superconducting current of 4101 A at a temperature
Winding current of 1950 A at 20 T achieved in layer-wound high-temperature superconducting magnet made from CORC cables
A layer-wound magnet that was constructed from a high-temperature superconducting cable was successfully tested at a temperature of 4.2 K and in a background field of 19.81 T. The CORC cable consisted of 20 superconducting tapes that were wound into 6 layers, forming a cable with an outer diameter of
Advanced Conductor Technologies’ compact, flexible, high-temperature superconducting cable is now called Conductor on Round Core cable (CORC).
