The KSTAR Central Solenoid Model Coils (CSMC), which are in the form of split coils with same dimension, have been tested. The CSMC were successfully charged up to 20 kA and down to zero with different ramp rates. Various pulse waveforms were applied to the CSMC to analyse the AC-loss characteristics of the coils. The measurement method was a gas-flow calorimetry. In this work, two types of waveforms, the DC-biased sinusoidal wave (Idc=2, 4 kA; DeltaIac=1 kA; f=0.08~0.67 Hz) and a single… CONTINUE READING
