We analyzed the temperature characteristics in the case of a fast quench by computer simulation, and confirmed these by experiment. The temperature of the quenched point was increased gradually according to the increase of source voltage. Temperature changes were radical at first, but showed a gentle slope after a few milliseconds. As the source voltage increased, the initial quenched length also increased. The points in this quenched length showed almost the same temperature, but showed radical temperature gradient to the points where initial quench had not occurred. We could observe that the temperature of the whole wire increased simultaneously as the fast quench occurred on the superconducting winding, because a number of quenched points in that wire appeared simultaneously.
