As new one of superconducting power supplies, we proposed an HTS flux pump utilized a solar energy system. As an eternal electric energy can' be converted by the solar system, the solar energy system is promisingly applied as an energy source in the power applications. Especially, since the solar energy system played a role in conventional utility power, total power consumption of the flux pump system are provided by solar energy. That means its operating efficiency is remarkably improved compared with developed flux pumps. A solar energy system is comprised of solar panel, photo-voltaic (PV) controller, converter and battery. The HTS flux pump consists of an electromagnet, two thermal heaters and a Bi 2223 magnet. In this paper, we describe the possibility the fusion technology between superconducting power supply and solar energy system. As a fundamental step, the fabrication, structure and experimental results are explained.
