With the increasing depletion of fossil fuels and growing environmental pressure, the mankind has got known the need to vigorously develop the renewable energy and the energy-saving technology. The high Tc superconducting (HTS) power technology will be very helpful to enhance the stability, reliability, and efficiency and transmission capacity of the power grid which would be dominated by the renewable energy. In this paper, we will report the installation and operation of a 10 kV HTS power substation which includes a 75 m/1.5 kA HTS power cable, a 10 kV/1.5 kA HTS fault current limiter, a 1 MJ/0.5 MVA high Tc SMES and a 630 kVA/10 kV/0.4 kV HTS power transformer.
