Title
(EN) CONNECTING SYSTEM FOR SUPERCONDUCTING SYSTEMS
(FR) SYSTÈME DE CONNEXION POUR SYSTÈMES SUPRACONDUCTEURS
Abstract
(EN) A system for connecting superconducting tapes in a superconducting fault current limiter (SCFCL) system is disclosed. The novel connector system allows two superconducting tapes to be installed in a single opening in a connector stack. This reduced the height of the connector stack by nearly 50%, making the SCFCL system more efficient and smaller in volume. In one embodiment, each connector has a recessed portion on both the top and bottom surfaces, such that when stacked on another connector, the recessed portions align, forming a larger opening. In another embodiment, the connector has a single recessed portion that can accommodate two superconducting tapes. The superconducting tapes may be disposed in a protective sleeve.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système permettant de connecter des rubans supraconducteurs dans un système limiteur de courant de défaut supraconducteur (SCFCL). Le nouveau système de connexion permet d'installer deux rubans supraconducteurs dans une seule ouverture dans un empilement de connecteurs. Cela réduit la hauteur de l'empilement de connecteurs de presque 50 %, rendant ce système SCFCL plus efficace et plus petit en volume. Dans un mode de réalisation, chaque connecteur comporte une partie évidée sur ses surfaces supérieure et inférieure, de manière que, quand il est empilé sur un autre connecteur, les parties évidées s'alignent, formant une plus grande ouverture. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, le connecteur comporte une seule partie évidée qui peut recevoir deux rubans supraconducteurs. Les rubans supraconducteurs peuvent être disposés dans un manchon de protection.
