A full system of 1 kWh/1 MW superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) has been completed early this year. This SMES is the first step to the realization of practical SMES system for power line stabilization. Main points in its design are two module type arrangement of six coils having three coils and one converter as one unit of module, modified-D-shaped coils with mechanical supports, liquid helium vessel type cooling of coils, and high-temperature superconducting current leads. The first test experiment was carried out on the site recently. The above design points were examined. A preliminary test for power line control was also made in the distribution line at the site. Satisfactory results were obtained.
