Superconducting magnetic energy storage

Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) systems store energy in the magnetic field created by the flow of direct current in a superconducting coil which has been cryogenically cooled to a temperature below its superconducting critical temperature. A typical SMES system includes three parts: superconducting coil, power conditioning system and cryogenically cooled refrigerator. (Wikipedia.org)

  • SMES for protection of distributed critical loads

    Summary form only given. This paper proposes the use of a micro high temperature superconducting magnetic energy storage system (HTS-SMES) to support critical industrial loads connected to the customer's 11 kV load bus with a ride-through capability of around 20 cycles. With the advances of power electronics and digital signal processing technology, such a system can also be utilized to improve the power quality of the power system. A novel control methodology is proposed to regulate the SMES discharge to extend the support time to critical loads during a short-term disturbance in the distribution network. Using a P-Q diagram, the analysis of the power flow from the energy storage system to the power system is presented. The proposed hysteresis controller with SMES increases the operating area in P-Q plane as compared to the conventional d-q controlled scheme used in the literature. This allows the system capability to be utilized to its maximum thermal limits. The scheme also has the capability to control the real and reactive power flow through the converter using the proposed hysteresis current control scheme. This provides the capability to optimize the available energy storage by using load priority scheduling. Simulation and laboratory test results on the prototype are presented to validate the proposed control scheme.

  • Utilization of the series resonant DC link converter as a conditioning system for SMES

    A novel superconductive magnetic energy storage (SMES) system utilizing a high-efficiency series resonant DC link power converter as the conditioning converter is presented. This system generates a high-frequency (20 kHz or more) resonant current in a series link, and switching is done at zero current instants, reducing switching losses to a minimal value. Through the utilization of an adequate control strategy, input power factor can be fully adjusted during the charging, storing, and discharging modes of the SMES, improving the overall system efficiency. Different semiconductor devices are employed as the switching elements of the resonant converter, and switching losses are established for each case. Experimental results from a monophase and three-phase system verified the results obtained from digital simulation.<<ETX>>

  • Theoretical studies and experimental results of a SMES used in a pulsed current supply

    A superconducting magnet energy storage (SMES) can be used as a pulsed power supply. A superconducting coil stores energy without electrical losses and this energy can be recovered through a second wire on which the charge (electromagnetic launcher, for example) is linked. The design of such an apparatus needs to solve simultaneously thermal, magnetic, and electric equations. We proposed a three-dimensional finite difference method to solve these coupled problems. This tool enables us to describe resistive zones of expansion in thick coils during a quench and to predict the duration and the efficiency of the discharge. Moreover, it indicates if the coil is prevented from an excessive temperature increase. Then, a probative device is described and experimental results are compared with theoretical ones.
