Abstract

HTS cables are designed to carry bulk power with high ampacity in superconducting state. These cables require terminal connectors of same ampacity to transfer power from source to load via HTS cable. This paper deals with thermal analysis of 2 kA, 220V DC terminal connector for HTS cable. The ohmic losses were computed and were used as an input for steady state thermal analysis of HTS terminal connector. Based on thermal analysis optimal location of feed through is estimated for thermal stability of HTS cable.
