Abstract

The development of cryogenic technology and high temperature superconducting (HTS) materials has seen continued interest worldwide in the development of HTS machines since the late 1980s. In this paper, the authors present a conceptual design of a 2.5 MW class synchronous motor. The structure of the motor is specified and the motor performance is analysed via a two-dimensional model using the finite element method (FEM). Based on the results of this analysis, the determination of operation point and load angle is discussed with consideration to the HTS material properties. The results show that this type of HTS machine has the potential to operate at a low load angle with high efficiency, and this design process provides a practical way to simulate and analyse the performance of such machines.
