Two experimental high temperature superconducting transformers has been designed and built using Bi2223 HTS tape. The transformers are unique in that the magnetic circuit is comprised of air and a silicon steel partial core. The first transformer failed during a full load endurance run and an investigation was carried out to determine the cause of the failure. The cause was believed to be from operating the HTS windings close to critical conditions. A method of determining the ac current rating of the HTS tape was developed and applied to the second transformer. This second transformer was tested successfully under load for several hours.

An Experimental High Temperature Superconducting Transformer: Design, Construction and Testing Lapthorn, A.; Chew, I.; Bodger, P.; Enright, W. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2010)In 2005, the development of a 50Hz, 15kVA, 30V:115V partial core high temperature superconductor (HTS) transformer was completed. The transformer was designed purely as a proof of concept, rather than as a unit that would ...
Equivalent Circuit Model of Cascade Connected Partial Core Resonant Transformers Irani, Y.; Lapthorn, A.; Bodger, P. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Electric Power Engineering Centre, 2013)This paper presents a proof of concept and equivalent circuit analysis of a cascade arrangement of tunable HV testing transformers intended for field use. The transformers use a partial core with air completing the flux ...
Design and construction of a triggered spark gap for long distance exploding wire experiments Sinton, R.; van Herel, R.; Enright, W.; Bodger, P. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2010)This paper gives the technical information required to build a triggered spark gap (TSG) for igniting exploding wire experiments. The TSG, which uses a concentric three-electrode configuration, reliably triggers on test ...
