A high-temperature superconducting (HTS) DC cable system has attracted a great deal of interest from the view point of low loss, dense structure and large capacity compared to HTS AC cable system. It has a HTS cable and a termination. A HTS DC cable system consists of a conductor, cooling system and electrical insulation. To realize the HTS DC cable system, it is important to study not only high current capacity and low loss of conductor but also optimum electrical insulation at cryogenic temperature. The electrical insulation technology of HTS DC cable and termination must be solved for the long life, reliability and compact of cable. In this paper, we will discuss mainly on the electrical insulation characteristics and the insulation design of 220 kV class HTS DC cable. Voltage-time (V-t) characteristics of laminated polypropylene paper (PPLP) in LN2 were studied. Furthermore, the surface flashover characteristics of glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) for termination insulators under DC and lightning impulse voltage were studied.
