Superconductor Technology: Applications to Microwave, Electro-Optics, Electrical Machines, and Propulsion Systems (Wiley Series in Microwave and Optical Engineering)Comprehensive coverage of theory and applications alikeSuperconductor Technology integrates research efforts from around the world and provides the most comprehensive presentation of superconducting technology available. It covers high- and low-temperature superconductors (HTSC and LTSC) and, while the discussion centers on the more practical HTSC applications (those in the range of 77K), the advantages of LTSC technology in certain circumstances are also explored.Author A. R. Jha examines the i…

Applications of High Temperature Superconductors to Electric Power EquipmentThe only one-stop reference to design, analysis, and manufacturing concepts for power devices utilizing HTS. High temperature superconductors (HTS) have been used for building many devices for electric grids worldwide and for large ship propulsion motors for the U.S. Navy. And yet, there has been no single source discussing theory and design issues relating to power applications of HTS—until now. This book provides design and analysis for various devices and includes examples of devices built…

Superconducting Levitation: Applications to Bearing and Magnetic TransportationPresents the fundamental principles governing levitation of material bodies by magnetic fields without too much formal theory.
