Two types of mechanical contact joint termination methods for a 2G YBCO cable have been developed. Each YBCO tape of a cable is connected to a BSCCO tape while the other ends of BSCCO tapes are bundled together and soldered inside a copper tube. Another termination method uses only YBCO tapes. It has been confirmed that both joint termination methods are very useful for 2G HTS cables. Mechanical contact joint resistances between YBCO-BSCCO tapes and YBCO-YBCO tapes have been measured under… CONTINUE READING
