Project Details


Superconductivity is a fascinating state of matter initially associated with vanishing of electrical resistivity at cryogenic temperatures, whose technologies address all electrical chain. Yet, its high costs prevent its adoption. Cryogenics accounts for a significant part of those costs, even if using High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) materials, that may operate in liquid nitrogen, reducing cooling cost. This is related with losses in the materials, requiring its prediction. Yet, current modelling methodologies are time consuming, not applicable in the design stage, only addressing non-realistic pure AC regimes. tLOSS proposes a disruptive approach to modelling losses, splitting them in several levels, from materials to the whole system. Fast models for losses under distinct harmonic regimes will be obtained and new HTS applications assessed. tLOSS engages the scientific community by a collaborative approach that accelerates models development, thus promoting HTS technologies.
