Resumen:
Una empresa inglesa ha validado una nueva tecnología para producir cables superconductores de MgB2 con una longitud infinita y una gran consistencia destinados a aplicaciones industriales. La tecnología se basa en soldadura láser y permite la producción continua. Esto se consigue gracias a una combinación de nanopartículas de magnesio y boro que se incorporan en el núcleo del cable mediante alimentadores de nanopolvos inteligentes para garantizar una consistencia reproducible a escala micrométrica. La empresa busca socios para discutir nuevas posibilidades de generación y transmisión de energía renovables a gran escala. Específicamente busca fabricantes de estos equipos con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica e investigación.

Details

Tittle:
Infinitely-long cost-effective superconductors for large-scale industrial applications
Summary:
A new technology has been validated to produce MgB2 superconductive wires at infinite length, and very high consistency. The developer, an East of England company is keen to discuss new possibilities in large scale renewable energy generation and transmission. Manufacturers of such equipment are sought for technical or research co-operation.
Description:
An East of England company has developed and patented a novel method of producing infinitely long and cost-effective Magnesium Diboride (MgB2) superconductive wires for industrial applications.

Their technology uses laser seam-welding technology to enable continuous production. This is facilitated by a nanoparticle mix, consisting of magnesium and boron which is fed into the core of the wire using intelligent nano-powder feeders - to ensure micron-scale reproducible consistency.

Results during industrial-scale production trials show that the technology produces a high-temperature superconductor (>30km), that is not only the longest in the market, but has a consistency unachievable using other manufacturing techniques on offer today.

Collaborating with industry leaders, this product has multiple applications:

- Elimination of the need and dependence on liquid helium in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners, leading to lower capital and running costs.
- This new technology can be applied to generate power storage systems, correcting varying power demands to eliminate power-frequency variations, which could otherwise damage electrical appliances.
- From an environmental standpoint, Gigawatt-scale MgB2 super-conductive cables could also transmit large amounts of electricity without losses, providing interconnections between wind and solar farms, leading to grid enforcement and integration with different green technologies.
- DC superconductive generators could also be the solution for large wind turbines, highly DC energy demanding applications and for many other critical applications, where high power at less weight is needed.

The company has established a network of collaborators to develop superconductive machines and are actively looking for additional equipment manufacturers to design greener, sustainable solutions for the future. The type of co-operation would be technical or R-Y-D, dependent on the technical readiness of the overall system. The company will consider relevant cross-border funding schemes for research co-operation.
Advantages and Innovations:
The infinitely long yet highly consistent wire is important to guarantee the robustness of the superconductor.
Stage of Development:
Already on the market
