Abstract
Development of superconducting current leads based on YBCO coated conductors. The purpose of the project is to develop methods of optimization for high current, low voltage current leads based on YBCO coated conductors. The purpose of such leads is to provide power to the magnets using higher currents and with lower heat loss than what can be achieved with conventional. Use of YBCO coated conductors with electrically and thermally attached one or more pieces of similar coated conductors in the region of elevated temperatures. These boosters will increase the current-carrying capacity of the main conductor in the region of elevated temperature, but will not increase the thermal flux into the cold volume. COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS AND OTHER BENEFITS: The experience and lessons learned in the design of
