The development of all superconducting (AS) plants (ASP), as for example AS mini power plants (MPP), or AS substations is presently becoming a new trend in power applications of superconductivity. Superconductivity can contribute significantly to increase the advantages of MPP(tm)s. Exceeding the stage of the development of individual superconducting power devices (SPD), more and more concern is being focused around ASP(tm)s consisting of a set of individual SPD(tm)s being integrated into one system possessing substantial additional benefits compared to and exceeding those of the individual SPD(tm)s. A high temperature superconducting (HTS) MPP model with a projected power rating of 10 kW has been designed by the author to develop, construct and test it in the near future.Proper approaches and tools are needed to promote the industrial application and market introduction of HTS power devices, including that of the HTS MPP. Computer aided engineering problem solving (CAEPS) methods effectively help estimate qualitatively and quantitatively the technical and economical feasibilities of HTS devices. CAEPS methods and tools have been applied to develop the HTS MPP model.
