This study is focused on the optimization of a- YBa2Cu3O7-x (YBCO) based bolometer working above 77 K. The temperature distribution on the superconductor surface and the temperature profile through the whole system (bolometer plus plate with heaters) were studied at the working point ... Read More

Hybrid 2D/3D fully coupled electrothermal model for three-core submarine armored cables

Juan Carlos del-Pino-López1, PedroCruz-Romero1
1Universidad de Sevilla, Spain

It is a fact that IEC 60287 standard introduces important errors in the computation of the armor losses of submarine three-core lead sheathed armored cables, since the twisting of phases and armor wires is not considered. This results in an overestimation of cable size, and hence its ... Read More
