Torsional dependence of the critical current in 2G tapes
MetadataShow full item record
Since the second-generation (2G) superconducting wires started to be produced in a large scale almost a decade ago, the quality of the materials manufactured has been continually improved. Every year, the manufacturers present new materials with better electrical properties, increasing the critical
current density, critical magnetic field, and the total length produced with continuous homogeneity. The mechanical properties of the coated conductor should be taken into account since electro-dynamical forces appear in working conditions as stress in the cooling and heating processes. In applications such as fault-current limiters, superconducting magnetic energy storage, transformers, electromagnets, motors, cables, etc., the consideration of them is mandatory to the project of those devices. In this context, this paper studies the electrical and mechanical properties of 12-mm 2G wires samples under torsion without axial tension. Critical current is measured as a function on the torsion angle. Details of the experiment and their results are here presented.

H-Formulation FEM Modeling of the Current Distribution in 2G HTS Tapes and Its Experimental Validation Using Hall Probe Mapping Sotelo, G. G.; Carrera i Vilanova, Miquel; Granados, X. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)One of the most widespread mathematical formulations applied to simulate the electromagnetic phenomena of coated conductor in the recent literature is the H one. However, the only validation of the model has been indirect ...
Sotelo, G. G.; Sass, Felipe; Carrera i Vilanova, Miquel; López López, José; Granados, X. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2018)This paper presents a new design for a su- perconducting linear motor (SLM). This SLM uses stacks of second-generation (2G) superconducting tapes, which are responsible for replacing yttrium barium ...
Computation of current distribution in YBCO tapes with defects obtained from hall magnetic mapping by inverse problem solution Carrera i Vilanova, Miquel; Amorós, J.; Granados, X.; Maynou, R.; Puig, Teresa; Obradors, X. (IEEE, 2011)The development of superconducting devices based on long-length HTS tapes often requires of these tapes high homogeneity along its length as well as across its width. This implies the absence of significant local defects. ...
