LS Cable & System has recently succeeded in developing a next-generation superconducting cable. The superconducting cable has almost no power loss during transmission and is capable of large-capacity transmission. Since it does not generate electromagnetic waves, it is called a representative environmentally friendly energy product.
LS Cable & System developed the 23kV 3-phase coaxial superconducting cable through R&D for about 2 years jointly with the Korea Electric Power Research Institute at the Gochang Power Testing Center of KEPCO and obtained the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard. Three companies, including LS Cable & System, have successfully developed it worldwide, but LS Cable & System is the first to obtain international certification.
According to the industry, KEPCO is known to plan to apply this next-generation model to a superconducting platform business starting next year. After LS Cable & System commercialised superconducting cable for the first time in the world in 2019, it is also expected to lead the commercialisation of next-generation products.
