Abstract

Large-inductance DC reactors are often required in practical factories, and superconducting magnets represent an interesting alternative for the construction of such devices. It is therefore useful to obtain optimized designs for DC reactors, particularly for the minimization of the winding volume under many constraints. The superconducting magnets of DC reactors can be operated at higher temperature than that of SMES, since the rated current in the case of DC reactors is much smaller. To operate at high temperature (77 K) makes the coolant cost low. However, the flux flow loss becomes large at 77 K, and then it has to be taken into account at the design stage. In this paper, the optimized configurations of toroidal superconducting magnets for DC reactor are presented and the configurations of HTS conductor are investigated under taking the flux flow loss into account.
