Measured Performance of HTS Cable and Tape As A Function of Field at BNL
Measurements of “BSCCO-2212 cable” (Showa/LBL/BNL) at BNL test facility
Reported Ic in new wires is ~ 3x better than measured in the cable.
This was a narrow (18 strand) cable. Wider cable with new conductor should be able to carry 5-10 kA current at high fields!
Measurements of “BSCCO 2223 tape” wound at 57 mm diameter with applied field parallel (1mV/cm criterion)
(field perpendicular value is ~60%)
(self field correction is applied)
