Field and Current Measurements and Calculations in a Superconducting Tape-Wound Magnet

Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 18)


The accurate knowledge of currents and fields within a superconducting winding is not usually required. This is because the working region of a magnet is a small distance away from the region occupied by the winding itself, and no great error is introduced by assuming a uniform current density. However, in flux jump investigations the field and current should be known accurately inside the superconductors. This presentation describes how these may be calculated.
