Large scale superconducting devices and systems are investigated. In particular the following applications are considered

- Energy storage ( SMES )

- Limitation of fault current ( SFCL )

- DC transmission and distribution of electricity

- Magnetic levitation , generation of magnetic fields and use machines


Among available superconductors both magnesium diboride ( MgB2 ) and materials with high critical temperature (HTS ) are considered.

Numerical models able to cope with the high non linearity of these materials are also developed for the design and the optimization of practical devices.


Devices of industrial interest for the electromagnetic processing of material are also investigated. These include high efficiency induction heaters (both for aluminum and steel) and electromagnetic filters for the removal of micropollutants from liquids and fine particulate from atmosphere.


The research activities are carried out in collaboration with several industries and research organizations.
