In this work, the electro-thermal behavior of two layer-wound High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) coils, realized with and without electrical insulation, is compared. Both coils are wound from the same BSCCO tape, and have a very similar geometry, with the same number of turns and layers. A heat input is applied to both coils, by tuning the current supplied to resistive heaters realized through stainless steel tapes wound on the mandrel at the inner surface of both coils. The heaters are in contact with one full inner turn of the winding. The coils are cooled in a liquid nitrogen bath, and the heaters are supplied with a constant current. Then, the windings are charged until the tape critical current is exceeded, and the tests are repeated for different heat loads. The signals acquired through voltage taps, suitably soldered at the same locations in both windings, are compared at the same testing conditions. Finally, the electrical characteristic of the different layers of the coils is related to the temperature of the heater and of the various turns of the coil by means of a 1-D thermal model.

Abstract

In this work, the electro-thermal behavior of two layer-wound High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) coils, realized with and without electrical insulation, is compared. Both coils are wound from the same BSCCO tape, and have a very similar geometry, with the same number of turns and layers. A heat input is applied to both coils, by tuning the current supplied to resistive heaters realized through stainless steel tapes wound on the mandrel at the inner surface of both coils. The heaters are in contact with one full inner turn of the winding. The coils are cooled in a liquid nitrogen bath, and the heaters are supplied with a constant current. Then, the windings are charged until the tape critical current is exceeded, and the tests are repeated for different heat loads. The signals acquired through voltage taps, suitably soldered at the same locations in both windings, are compared at the same testing conditions. Finally, the electrical characteristic of the different layers of the coils is related to the temperature of the heater and of the various turns of the coil by means of a 1-D thermal model.
