Quench Detection and Protection of Cryocooler-Cooled YBCO Pancake Coil for SMES

Abstract

In this paper, we focus on the quench detection and protection of a cryocooler-cooled pancake coil for SMES wound with a YBCO bundle conductor composed of laminated electrically insulated YBCO-coated conductors. Because the normal-zone propagation velocity is much slower in a high-temperature superconducting (HTS) coil than in a low-temperature… (More)
