High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) machines offer several benefits over the conventional machines. With the advent of YBCO materials, research and development in HTS applications has gained significant impetus. The application of flux pump has its own advantages over the conventional mechanism for magnetic field generation in superconductors. This paper reviews few relevant works and presents preliminary results from experiments carried out to provide justification on the application of flux pump for generating magnetic flux in a rotating machine.
