HTS Triax Superconducting Cables

HTS Triax Cable Standards & Norms

Industry standards and norms for electric power and utility cables are written by several organizations and differ by country. Some common standards organizations include IEEE, ICEA, IEC and AEIC.

At this early stage of deployment and market utilization of HTS cables, no national or international standards exist to specifically address the testing and performance requirements of HTS cables.

This task has recently been adopted and begun in Cigre, the International Council on Large Electric Systems. Development of new international guidelines and standards is a slow process. It is expected that standards may be available in the 2015 timeframe.
