Within the FP7-funded BEST PATHS project, a demonstration area is aiming to validate the MgB2 technology for HVDC power transmission. In this work, results for the different MgB2 wires are presented, with a particular focus on the critical aspects influencing the cable design: wire diameter, critical current performance, mechanical properties, and stress tolerance of the wire subjected to bending and tension.
