This paper presents simulation of a Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) system. SMES technology has the potential to bring real power storage characteristic to the utility transmission and distribution systems. The principle of SMES system operation is reviewed in this paper. To understand performance of a SMES system, a detailed SMES system model is given with simulation results. This system is demonstrated using an Matlab/simulink . In this paper, Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) found a number of applications in power systems. The heart of the SMES system is the large superconducting coil. There are several reasons for using superconducting magnetic energy storage instead of other energy storage methods. The most important advantage of SMES is that the time delay during charge and discharge is quite short. Power is available almost instantaneously and very high power output can be provided for a brief period of time.
