Abstract

The current decay of High temperature superconducting (HTS) magnet is larger than that of low temperature superconducting (LTS) magnet due to its lower n-value and higher joint resistance. To compensate the current decay in HTS magnet, various power supplies have been required. From this reason, as an option of power supply for HTS magnet, we have proposed a flux pump with heater trigger switch. In this paper, a performance and experimental analysis on a transformer type flux pump were presented. Characteristics of pumping rates with respect to change in the temperature and sequential timing of the heater-triggered switch were investigated. As well as, the pumping rates were carried out in the charging mode. Furthermore, the compensating actions were carried out in the persistent current mode using a feedback control unit.
