In this paper we present the results of tests for the high-Tc superconducting (HTS) power cables and analysis of HTS power transmission system in Korea. A prototype HTS cables have been constructed using Bi-2223 based Ag-sheathed HTS tapes. The prototype cable has been tested at 77 K with DC currents. Results shows that the cable carrying up to 730 A DC and analyzed the feasibility of HTS power transmission system at Seoul area in Korea. According to analysis results, HTS power system can be reduced 5.2% to approximately 9.7% of the underground transmission lines compared to conventional cable system in Seoul, Korea and HTS power cable is feasible in future power system.
