The Design and Operation of an 88-kG 20-in.-Bore Superconducting Magnet System
The design of a large superconducting-magnet system should integrate all requirements for such a system into a functional unit by considering the system’s major problems in the mechanical, thermal, and electrical areas and provide mutually compatible solutions to these problems. This paper reports on the results of such a design and on some of the analytical and experimental work carried out to provide the answers to these problem areas. The entire system consists of a set of four 20-in.-bore, 50-kG solenoids, two of which have been built and tested.
