J-8 SUPERCONDUCTING D.C. MACHINES-CONCERNING MAINLY CIVIL MARINE PROPULSION BUT WITH MENTION OF INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

This paper discusses the current status of superconducting dc motors and generators with particular regard to civil marine propulsion. It commences with a brief account of the factors which help to ensure reliability and proceeds to enumerate the advantages which are expected from superconducting dc marine propulsion systems. A practical demonstration of the latter is reported. An assessment of the general market for the machines is included, along with industrial applications for these new machines.
