A Combined Function Common Coil Magnet System for Lower Cost VLHC
In a conventional superconducting magnet design, the right side of the coil return on the left side. In a common coil magnet, coil from one aperture return to the other aperture instead.
- A combined magnet design is possible as the coils on the right and left sides are different.
- Therefore, combined function magnets are possible for both low and high field apertures.
- Note: Only the layouts of the higher energy and lower energy machines are same. The “Lattice” of the two rings could be different.
