For the insulation design of HTS cable, it is necessary to investigate the ac, impulse breakdown, and partial discharge inception stress of a liquid nitrogen/polypropylene laminated paper composite insulation system. These results were used to design the electrical insulation of 22.9-kV-class HTS cable in Korea and cable was manufactured. A manufactured mini-model HTS cable was evaluated for ac withstand voltage, impulse withstand voltage, breakdown and dielectric tangent loss (tan ) . From these tests, the cable has satisfied the standard technical specification of KEPCO in Korea. The breakdown voltage was 110 kV. Index Terms— AC withstand voltage, dielectric tangent loss, high-Tc superconducting (HTS) cable, partial discharge inception stress. I. INTRODUCTION T HE application of high-Tc superconductor (HTS) to power cable has been studied because HTS cable has a large cur- rent capacity, compact size and low ac losses. Some HTS cable systems have already been developed and evaluated [1]–[3]. KERI-LG is developing a 22.9-class HTS cable which is one of the 21st Century frontier projects in Korea [4], [5]. The HTS cable system is composed of conductor, cooling system and electrical insulation. A study of electrical insulation is important to develop a HTS cable because the cable is oper- ated in a high voltage environment. The insulation of the HTS cable described in this paper used dielectric paper/liquid com- posite insulation, which is similar to the dielectric structure of oil filled (OF) cables [6], [7]. In particular, the electrical break- down characteristics of dielectric paper, such as ac withstand voltage, impulse withstand voltage and partial discharge incep- tion stress, are necessary for the design of 22.9-kV-class HTS cable.
