Refrigeration for rotating superconducting windings of large ac electric machines

The rotating superconducting windings of large ac machines must be supplied with enough refrigeration at an adequate temperature. The problems associated with bringing liquid helium to the rotating winding structure are analysed. Existing designs as well as newly proposed systems are used to draw the general guidelines for the design concepts of cooling systems for rotating superconducting windings. © 1976.
