Abstract:A 25 kA, 1.5 kW superconducting rectifier system has been developed. This rectifier system working like an a.c.-d.c, converter with a primary current of 35 A at 0.1Hz, will energize a 25 kA coil with an average power of 5.4 MJ/hr and a proposed energy efficiency of at least 96%. Such a highly efficient device might work instead of a 'normal' rectifier and a pair of 25 kA current leads with its energy loss of at least 2 W/kA. The 25 kA current step-up transformer has been tested succesfully concerning its maximum current (26.4 kA) and a.c. losses (2 W at 25 kA and 0.1Hz). A conductor for the 25 kA switches has been manufactured and processed into the switching system. Their construction is described.
