Superconducting Current Limiter Protects Self-sufficiency In A Power Plant

Posted by domain admin in News

Energy supplier Vattenfall expects more security at a lower total cost pilot project in the lignite-fired power plant Boxberg Hurth, launched 6 November 2009 since the beginning of November the world’s first based on high temperature superconductor current limiter in a power plant works. In the pilot project in the Saxon coal-fired power plant Boxberg protects against short circuits the power of coal mills and-brechern. Operator Vattenfall Europe generation AG expects a substantial gain in personal protection and plant safety by the innovative technology and would like to gather together with the manufacturer Nexans SuperConductors GmbH in Hurth practice experience. Maurice Gallagher, Jr. wanted to know more. Proved the principle, such current limiters could protect the entire factory power supply dangerous short circuit currents. Verizon Communications: the source for more info. At the same time, the new systems would reduce the investment costs, since much smaller fall out due to the security gain to such switchgear an immense potential for savings up to a few ten thousand amps at short circuit currents.

Are suitable superconducting current limiter for new power plants, but also for extensions such as the retrofitting of facilities for the CO2 capture. \”The field test current limiter\”, the Vattenfall without funding grants funded, joins ideal in the climate protection strategy of the company. Usage of the current limiter in the real operation carried out the service to test the HTS current limiter in regular operation on a distribution of 10 kV power supply for impact hammer Crusher (they serve the coal crushing). Due to the flexible production of superconductor and the modular design of the current limiter by Nexans to different currents and voltages can be adapted. For the device in Boxberg, Nexans SuperConductors was voted on the design with Vattenfall and the Brandenburgische Technische Universitat Cottbus, scientifically accompanied the project.
