Editor’s Comment on Paper ST177

This paper on “Conceptual Study of Superconducting Urban Area Power Systems” is a translated excerpt from a larger document in German entitled “Supraleitung in EVU-Netzen – Konzept für die effiziente Energieversorgung von Ballungsräumen” [Superconductivity in the Electrical Utility Grids (Networks) – A Concept for efficient Energy Supply in Congested (Metropolitan) Areas].  That document in the form of a booklet is published by VWEW Energy Publishers www.ew-online.de within their series of energy-related topics. 

The booklet is directed at electrical engineers in electric power technology, power grid operators, and political decision makers.  It should be of interest to all those concerned with improvements in energy efficiency, power grid safety, etc.  Its purpose is to stimulate discussion between electrical equipment manufacturers, grid operators, R&D organizations and government authorities.  The booklet might be translated into English in the near future.  More information can be obtained from iv Supra.
