Abstract

Superconducting coils (SC) are the core elements of Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) systems. It is thus fundamental to model and implement SC elements in a way that they assure the proper operation of the system, while complying with design specifications. As a part of a larger model, a coil design model is here presented and verified with tests made in a laboratory prototype. The limitations of the superconducting tape used, namely the negative effect of magnetic field components on its critical current value, are also verified and a possible solution to avoid that effect is studied.
