Quench Energies of Potted Magnets, III
Several different formulas have been proposed for estimating quench energies of potted magnets.1–3 These formulas, although based on plausible approximations, disagree with one another by factors of 2 to 6. By the use of maximum and minimum principles for the heat balance equation, it has been possible to determine whether each estimate is an upper or lower bound.
