The high-Tc superconducting (HTS) magnet is an important element for developing HTS power equipments such as the dc reactor of the inductive type superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL). In order to use the HTS magnet for the large-scale power system, its critical current needs to be high enough. Generally, the double pancake HTS magnet has the severe decrease in the critical current because of magnetic field perpendicular to the tape surface. To fabricate a high critical current magnet, we wound a solenoid with the stacked tape. In this paper, the characteristics of the critical current of the HTS solenoid wound with the stacked tape were investigated. The results of this research can be used as the background data for the design of the large-scale HTS magnet.
