Problem Addressed

Existing superconducting wires can increase their capacity with a parallel arrangement of the wires. However, there is a significant amount of heat loss caused by resistive and magnetic hysterisis generated by flux couplings in the loop circuits among the superconducting wires. By twisting the superconducting wires, the magnetic flux coupling is heavily reduced. There exists a demand for high current capacities in both AC and DC applications that current technologies are not capable of sustaining. Therefore, the high current capacities of the High Temperature Superconductors (HTS) needed for practical applications can be acquired with the removal of accompanying AC losses or magnetic flux coupling losses.
