Abstract

In this paper, the functioning conditions for a superconducting synchronous electric motor are analyzed together with the electric drive systems, the motor’s cooling cryogenic system as well as the protection system of the rotor superconducting winding. The equipment for driving and testing of the superconducting synchronous electric motor by the inverter equipment, is conceived for doing a wide range of synchronous rotating speeds, as well as a large number of functioning modes, software programmable. Also, the complex quench protection system includes quench detection and crossing superconducting windings in parallel on discharge resistance.
