Two specific applications of superconductors are considered: electric machinery (motors and generators) and transmission lines. Development work carried out with respect to both types of equipment indicates that the use of superconductors is feasible, even if only liquid-helium-cooled superconductors are considered. The high-T c superconductors will have a beneficial impact on motors, generators, and transmission lines only if conductors with sufficient mechanical properties and current-carrying capabilities can be developed
