China's first HTS power cable project was started in the second half of 2002 and on site system installation was finished at Puji Substation of China Southern Power Grid in March, 2004. This cable system consists of three 33.5 m, 35 kV/2 kArms cables, six terminations, and a closed cycle liquid nitrogen cooling station. The conductors of the cables were made of 4 layers of BSCCO 2223 HTS tapes. Off grid field testing and live grid trial operation has been carried out since the completion of the installation. In this paper, we will report the key technical parameters of the system. Descriptions of the installation site, demonstration of the system installation, and results of testing and trial operation will also be presented and discussed.
