Abstract

The observations the dc voltage on asymmetric superconducting ring testify that one of the ring segments is a dc power source. The persistent current flows against the total electric field in this segment. This paradoxical phenomenon is observed when the ring or its segments are switched between superconducting and normal state by non-equilibrium noises. We demonstrate that the dc voltage and the power increase with the number of the identical rings connected in series. Large voltage and power sufficient for practical application can be obtained in a system with a sufficiently large number of the rings. We point to the possibility of using such a system for the observation of the dc voltage in the normal state of superconducting rings and in the asymmetric rings made of normal metal.
