Characterization of high temperature superconductors using a multiphysical test rig

Ensuring the electro-mechanical operational stability of superconductors in electrical machines has not yet been thoroughly researched. This is the prerequisite for a broad application of this technology in the field of wind energy utilization.


Investigation of the effect of mechanical forces on superconducting tapes in relation to the design of electrical machines.


Investigation of the superconducting state space (temperature, current and magnetic field strength) combined with mechanical loading of the material.
