CIAM conducted demonstration tests of high temperature superconducting electric engine
On 30 January 2019, the Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM, a subsidiary of the National Research Senter ‘Zhukovsky Institute’) together with SuperOx conducted demonstration tests of a high temperature superconducting electric engine with a power output of 500 kW. The tests were held at the Moscow site of CIAM. The electric engine is developed by SuperOx with the support of the Advanced Research Foundation.

Testing this class of engine is an early step towards the development of hybrid (electrical) power plants for aerial devices.

According to Mikhail Gordin, CIAM Director General, embodiment of second-generation superconducting materials cooled by liquid nitrogen in the engine design allows for an increased performance factor and reduced mass-dimensional characteristics of electrical machines and hybrid power plants based thereon.
