Title: Stability and Quench Protection for HTS Superconducting Magnets
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA9550-04-C-0098
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

The Air Force is currently pursuing the development of high temperature superconducting airborne generators, and air core transformers. Coated YBCO superconductors can enable these applications. More needs to be known about the stability of these YBCO coated superconductors when wound into coils, so that the best approaches for quench protection can be determined. Our STTR Phase I will investigate the stability of small YBCO coils with different amounts of stabilization and with different types of insulation. Our intent is to perform stability tests on small coils so that we can model larger coils and recommend methods of quench protection that can be evaluated and tested on larger YBCO coils in a Phase II effort. This technology will be applicable to rotor coils for a superconducting generator.
