StoRIES Infrastructures: UNIBO LIMSA

Laboratory of Magnet Engineering and Applied Superconductivity (LIMSA) of University of Bologna is equipped with the facilities and the know-how for the design, modelling and characterization of superconductor power devices for ES and grid integration.

State of the art: Characterization and quench analysis of superconductor wires, tapes and small coils, both at liquid nitrogen at 77K and with cryogen free cooling down to 10 K. High-performance computational facilities used for research and for industry consultancy.

Services currently offered by the infrastructure: Assessment of SMES systems in stand-alone applications and in hybrid ES systems, detailed design of SMES coils (electromagnetic, mechanic, thermal, quench, protection), detailed design of power electronic for SMES management, ggid interface and protection, test of small dry-cooled superconductor.
