Abstract : The investigation was undertaken to establish heat transfer design data for a superconducting generator. An analysis was made of heat transfer via various leakage paths into the generator. Further, a method of computing the heat input from the load-connecting electrical leads was devised. The result was a set of calculations for one design and a method of optimizing the conductor for minimum heat transfer. (Author)
