Normal zone propagation (NZP) within jointed YBCO coated conductors (CC) was analyzed experimentally. The joint between CC tapes were conducted by lap joint method and the characteristics of the jointed CC tapes measured from V-I curve. NZP was induced by thermal heaters attached to two points of the jointed CC tapes; the voltages across the jointed CC tapes were measured and recorded. NZP induced by each heater point is compared in point of protection of CC tapes and magnet. This study about NZP of the jointed tapes may be useful to make a magnet system with several coils using YBCO CC.
