HTS Magnet Quench Protection
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
A program is proposed which will lead to the development of novel quench protection technologies in high-temperature superconductive magnets operating at temperatures above 30K. These magnets are intended for use in compact, energy-dense magnet systems for the Air Force. In Phase I, innovative approaches will be explored. The designs will be based on many years of experience with both passive and active superconductive magnet protection systems. A magnet system will be fabricated and tested in Phase II. The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) at Florida State University will assist MTECH in the quench propagation analysis in Phase I. In Phase II, NHMFL will assist MTECH in the design and fabrication of the HTS magnet and associated test hardware.
