This paper describes the advantages of using superconducting cables in low-voltage DC distribution systems, focusing on total cost reduction. Demand for DC electric power has been rapidly increasing, requiring reductions in total costs and power supply system losses. The effects of using superconducting cables were investigated by changing parameters such as the current and length of cables, and it is shown that DC superconducting distribution systems are feasible even for small-capacity power systems and savings can be obtained beyond the extra cost of the superconductors and refrigeration systems. In this study, a test model of a DC superconducting distribution system, constructed by modification of an AC superconducting power transmission system, is presented and evaluated.
