Addition of Ti and Zr to high-pressure (HP) synthesized MgB2 results in an increase of critical current density of the material due to the absorption of impurity hydrogen coming most likely from the materials of a high-pressure cell. The results of the studies of structure, critical current density, trapped field and mechanical characteristics are discussed. High-pressure synthesized MgB2 (with Ti additions) blocks were for the first time used in a SC electromotor at 20 K and demonstrated the efficiency similar to that of MT-YBCO bulk (at the same working temperature).
