This effort in this Task synergistically interacts with 5.2.4 and 5.2.5. by using the results of the tasks to refine the models and feed the model optimizations to improve the designs of hardware
components developed in 5.2.5.
As the HTS technology components are still under development, prototype testing to validate the designs and capture their attributes to aid in model development and refinement is essential. The task will take advantage of the infrastructure at FSU-CAPS to facilitate the proposed component technology development and prototype testing and validation with the systems view in focus. In
particular, this task will focus on generating scalable electrical and thermal models for HTS cables that can be used in systems analysis to quantify the benefits, risks, and identifying potential challenges that needs to be tackled for successful implementation of HTS cables on AES. This task will also involve collecting and maintaining the relevant data on HTS cables that would be necessary to update the electrical models developed as the technology matures and new
design features are added. There are many efforts underway throughout the world on developing HTS cables for terrestrial utility applications and some of the development can directly be
implemented for HTS cables for Navy MVDC system applications. This task will review the ongoing development to assess the relevance to the Navy of various design features of the superconducting components and cryogenic system components and collecting and maintaining the data necessary to create electrical models.
