Benchmark #3

Twenty superposed thin tapes representative of the cross-section of a racetrack coil. Tapes are connected in series. A symmetry plane is defined to take into account the presence of the other part of the coil. Tape width: 12 mm Ic=300 A. Distance between HTS tapes (center-to-center for each HTS film): 250 μm. Distance between inner tape and symmetry plane: 10 cm Frequency=50 Hz


  1. I/Ic=0.5 to study J and B profiles in the individual tapes
  2. I/Ic=0.1, 0.2,…,0.9 to compute the AC loss
