Abstract

A significant number of recent studies have explored the impact of many kinds of winding insulation conditions on high-temperature superconducting (HTS) coils for the application of electric devices. HTS coil co-wound with turn-to-turn inserted materials could be an appropriate alternative to the no-insulation coil because of the poor charge-discharge delay and unexpected quench behavior of the no-insulation coil. In addition, the co-wound HTS coil has good thermal stability and mechanical integrity, making it useful for superconducting applications such as superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) and superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL). However, studies of the co-wound HTS coil have explored dc electrical characteristics, but not ac electrical characteristics. Research into ac electrical characteristics is essential because of the operation sequence of the SMES and fault occurrence for the SFCL. In this paper, the ac electrical characteristics of HTS coils co-wound with various inserted materials were experimentally analyzed. Tested coils were co-wound with either Kapton, stainless steel, or copper tape at every turn of the winding, and one no-insulation coil served as a reference. AC loss, fault current, and recovery time were measured at 77 K, self-field.
