Besides stator coils for the all-electric aircraft, magnesium diboride superconductors can benefit NASA for many applications where light weight power components are required such as generators, motors, transformers, inductors, power conditioning equipment and ADR coils. Other magnet applications that magnesium diboride wires can be considered for are magnetic bearings, actuators, MHD magnets, propulsion engines, magnetic shielding in space, and magnetic launch devices.
For Non-NASA commercial applications, MgB2 superconductor wires for DC applications are: rotor coils for motors and generators, background magnets for MRI systems to eliminate liquid helium bath cooling, inductive type superconducting fault current limiters. Low speed 5-20 MW direct drive wind turbine generators. For AC applications fine filament MgB2 wire being developed in this Phase II would benefit 50-400 Hz stators for generators and motors, transformers, reactors, inductors, and resistive fault current limiters.
