The coming revolution in superconducting electric drives  
Thursday, 23rd October 2003

The Subject
The meeting discussed the fundamental and practical issues designing commercially successful electric motors. A strong emphasis on the role of appropriate and cost-effective cryogenics emerged from the meeting. A general consensus was that the energy-saving aspects of electric drives would be unlikely to be sufficient to generate demand, but that the small size and weight could be vital to specific applications, especially for transport.
