An overview of the main peculiarities of the models currently available in literature for the thermal-hydraulic analysis of HTS power transmission cables, mainly in normal operating conditions, is performed. From the analysis the lack of a general model, capable to address for the different possible cable designs the thermal-hydraulic transients, with capability to catch both the behavior of the solid components of the cable and of the coolant, is evident. The main needs, in terms of ingredients that such general thermal-hydraulic model should not miss, are highlighted.
