A thermodynamic analysis is given for an energy conversion process which employs the phase transition in a superconductor. The conversion process is a cyclic one. An expression for the conversion efficiency is obtained. Quantitative estimates are calculated from the formula for several superconducting materials. These indicate that conversion efficiencies as high as 44% may be obtainable under ideal conditions.
