Nexans has, over decades, built up leading expertise in superconducting materials, cables and fault current limiters. Our high voltage and high current test fields are also available to customers for external test purposes. We provide simulation models as well as simulations and perform studies investigating applications of superconducting systems in power grids. Our services include:
Our services include:
High Voltage Test Field
Measurements of superconducting and conventional operating equipment are performed in a state-of-the-art high voltage testing facility with a shielded chamber of 30 m x 12 m x 9 m and a high-performance liquid nitrogen cooling system. The facility allows for partial discharge (PD) measurements. The interference level is below 1 pC.
High Current Test Field
The Nexans high current test field is available for testing superconducting and conventional devices. The AC testing facility is equipped with three-phase transformer of 2,200 kVA. The DC testing facility allows for test currents up to 15 kA.
