**Power Flows Electricity Hydrogen PSC = 2|V|IASC, where **

PSC = Electric power flow V = Voltage to neutral (ground) I = Supercurrent ASC = Cross-sectional area of superconducting annulus Electricity PH2 = 2(QρvA)H2, where PH2 = Chemical power flow Q = Gibbs H2 oxidation energy (2.46 eV per mol H2) ρ = H2 Density v = H2 Flow Rate A = Cross-sectional area of H2 cryotube Hydrogen

**Radiation Losses WR = 0.5εσ (T4amb – T4SC), where **

WR = Power radiated in as watts/unit area σ = 5.67×10-12 W/cm2K4 Tamb = 300 K TSC = 20 K ε = 0.05 per inner and outer tube surface DH = 45.3 cm WR = 16.3 W/m Superinsulation: WRf = WR/(n-1), where n = number of layers = 10 Net Heat In-Leak Due to Radiation = 1.8 W/m

**Fluid Friction Losses Wloss = M Ploss / ,**

Where M = mass flow per unit length Ploss = pressure loss per unit length = fluid density Fluid Re (mm) DH (cm) v (m/s) P (atm/10 km) Power Loss (W/m) H (20K) 2.08 x 106 0.015 45.3 4.76 2.0 3.2

**Electrical Issues Voltage – current tradeoffs AC interface (phases)**

“Cold” vs “Warm” Dielectric AC interface (phases) Generate dc? Multipole, low rpm units (aka hydro) Ripple suppression Filters Cryogenics Pulse Tubes “Cryobreaks” Mag Field Forces Splices (R = 0?) Charge/Discharge cycles (Faults!) Power Electronics GTOs vs IGBTs 12” wafer platforms Cryo-Bipolars
