A Study of Joining Method of BSCCO(2223) Tape
Progress in Superconductivity and Cryogenics, volume 1, issue 2, 1999, Pages 1~7
we evaluated the effects of joining process such as contact method. shape of joined area and pressure on the electrical and mechanical properties of Bi-2223 superconducting tape, Specifically. the current capacity of the jointed tape was measured as a function of uniaxial pressure. and the thermal shock, bonding strength and the thermal of the tape were evaluated and correlated to the microstructural evolution. It was observed that the current capacity was significanrly dependent on the uniaxial pressure The jointed tape, fabricated with a pressure of 1,000-1,600 Mpa. showed the highest value of current capacity results from improvements in core density, contacting area and grain alignment, ect. In addition, the strength of jointed tape was measured to be 86 Mpa, which is about 88% of the unjoined ape's strength. The irreversible strain(
irrev) for the jointed tape was measured to be 0.1%, smaller than that of unjoined tape (
irrev= 0.3%). The decrease in the strength and irreversible strain for jointed tape is believed to be due to the irregular geometry/morphology of the transition area of the tape.
A study on Quench Characteristics considering Winding Tension in Superconducting Coil using Acoustic Emission Technique
Progress in Superconductivity and Cryogenics, volume 1, issue 2, 1999, Pages 8~14
In this study, acoustic emission(AE) technique has been applied to detecting quench which is one of the serious peoblems to assure the integrity of superconducting coil at cryogenic temperature. The characteristics of AE parameters have been analyzed by correlating with the number of quenches, whinding tension of superconducting coil and charge rate of transport current. The quench localization was also performed using AE signals and there was also good correlation between quench current and AE parameters such as AE energy and AE events. In this study, it was confirmed that AE signals were mainly due to the conductor motion which caused by premature quenching. It was also found that optimized winding tension at superconducting coil was needed to prevent quench caused by conductor motion.
Fabrication and performance of 100 m Class Bi-2223 High Temperature Superconducting Tape
Progress in Superconductivity and Cryogenics, volume 1, issue 2, 1999, Pages 15~19
For large scale applications of high temperature superconductor (HTS) such as transmission cables, motors and generators, long length of flexible HTS conductor is required. Currently, Bi-2223 HTS tape is capable of being fabricated in longer than 100 m length by industrial processes. In this study, we fabricated 100 m 19 filamentary Bi-2223 (
) HTS tape by PIT (Power in Tube) process. Critical current(IC) of this long length tape was measured 18.5 A at 77K, self field. Critical current of 100 m length tape was mainly resulted from the increase of inhomogeneity in oxide from the increase of inhomogeneity in oxide layer. Engineering critical current (Je=Ic/total tape cross-section area) that is important factor for practical applications and fabrication cost was measured 2.2 kA/cm2.
Development of the Program for levitation Force Analysis in a Superconducting Bulk
Progress in Superconductivity and Cryogenics, volume 1, issue 2, 1999, Pages 20~24
The study of HTS(High Temperature Superconducting) bulk in magnetic levitation system requires the calculation of currents distribution in HTS bulk is very important to determine this forces. We have made computer program to find this current distribution and levitation force. J-E relation in HTS bulk is extremely nonlinear, so iteration method must be used to determine the current distribution. We developed the method to determine the current distribution in the unifrom-field model and, using this method, calculated the levitation force in permanent-magnet-levitation model.
Srability Analysis Of High-Tc Superconducting Tape Through Magnetic Field Analysis Of The High-Tc Superconducting synchronous Motor
Progress in Superconductivity and Cryogenics, volume 1, issue 2, 1999, Pages 25~29
The purpose of this paper is to find the magnetic filed distribution inside the motor in order to find out if the high-Tc superconducting tapes operate stably in actual motor operation in a detailed model of the actual motor was analyzed through F.E.M.(finite Element Method). As a result, it has been proved that the high-Tc superconducting tapes can with-stand 4 A of current with staility. 4 A was the amount of current with stability. 4 A was the amount of current needed to achieve 600 A·turns which is required by the previous simulation aimed at developing this the flux damper reduces armature reactance during the motor operation. But it was observed that the flux damper generates loss by means of leakage flux and this decreases the output of the motor by about 5%.
Setup and Operating Characteristics of the Experimental Apparatus for Magnetization Measurements of Sperconductor
Progress in Superconductivity and Cryogenics, volume 1, issue 2, 1999, Pages 30~36
Superconductors are dissipative when exposed to time-varying magnetic fields. To analyze the AC characteristics of a superconductor, one usually needs to know magnetization curves of it. Good magnetization curves can be obtained only in homogeneous magnetic filed. In This paper, we report the setup and test results of a magnetization measurement system, which consists mainly of frequency-variable power supply and homeogenous magnet with 7-cm long air gap. Special emphasis are foused on the design and fabrication of the magnet, which aims to give background magnetic fields, and on the overall characteristics of the system.
Design of Superconducting Current Leads Considering Bifurcation Characteristic
Progress in Superconductivity and Cryogenics, volume 1, issue 2, 1999, Pages 37~42
The stability of high-temperature superconducting current leads for cryogenic devices are investigated. By assuming full transition from superconducting state to normal state at a transition temperature, the HTS current at a transition temperature, the HTS current lead shows bifurcation phenomenon. There is a bifurcation shape-factor, HTS leads have three steady state. Below the bifurcation shape-factor, the superconducting current lead is unconditionally stable, because there exists only one steady-factor HTS current lead is conditionally stable depending on the shape and intensity of disturbance.
Stability Against Heat Pulse for Bi-2223 HTS Pancake Coils with Different Ag/SC Ratio
Progress in Superconductivity and Cryogenics, volume 1, issue 2, 1999, Pages 43~48
The normal zone propagation (NZP) velocity and V-I characteristics of two Bi-2223 pancake coils with different Ag/SC ratio were investigated based on the experimental results and broad resistive transition were obesved in two coils. The measured NZP velocity of coil was found to be faster due to increase of Ag/SC ratio, and agree well with calculated data from two dimensional heat balance equation.
Effects of a shunt resistor on current limitation performance of an SFCL
Progress in Superconductivity and Cryogenics, volume 1, issue 2, 1999, Pages 49~53
We fabricated a resistive superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) with a shunt resistor in order to bypass the transient current at faults. The SFCL consists of a YBCO films coated with an Au layer (10
at room temperature). which is to disperse the heat generated at hot spots in the YBCO films, and a 5
shunt resistor. The minimum quench current of the SFCL was found to be 12.2Apeak. This SFCL successfully controlled the fault current to below 23 Apeak. Which is otherwise to increase up to 103 Apeak. With the shunt resistor, the temperature of the SFCL rose the temperature of the SFCL rose three times slower than without the shunt, whereby the SFCL is protected at high currents.
