Development of 12 kA HTS Current Lead for Accelerator Magnet Test Application

A pair of 12 kA HTS current leads has been developed with a nitrogen vapor cooled resistive section and a stainless steel shunted HTS section using Bi2223/AgAu matrix tapes at the Institute of Plasma Physics, Chinese Academy of Science. These two leads, which need to transfer 21 kA in a short time, are intended as replacement leads for the accelerator… CONTINUE READING
