HTS High Q Resonant Controller


Article Preview

High Tc superconductor (HTS) technology has been used to develop an advanced high Q resonant circuit and its devices. With a HTS, a very high Q circuit can be achieved; consequently special aspects such as high voltage generation and high current control can be theoretically and practically realized. Theoretical study has been carried out, as well as a practical approach has been made for the concept verification. This paper describes the theory of this high Q resonant circuit and the operational principle of its high voltage generation and current control.
