Concept Design and Performance Analysis of HTS Synchronous Motor for
Ship Propulsion

Jin Zou, Di Hu, Mark Ainslie
With the technology development of High Temperature Superconductors (HTS), advanced synchronous rotating machines, called "SuperMachines", have been constructed and tested. These machines utilize the features of superconductivity, such as higher power density and current density. Therefore the superconducting machine has advantages over the conventional one, such as lower power losses, compact volume, higher output power and output torque. A 2.5 MW class synchronous ship propulsion motor has been designed based on 2-dimension finite element method. The design procedure and HTS motor performance will be discussed in the paper.
