As a first step to develop HTS insert technology, we plan to build a 10-T REBCO solenoid that will be tested at the French National High Magnetic Field Laboratory of Grenoble in France (LNCMI) at 4.2 K, in the aperture of a 20-T resistive magnet. Two winding approaches are being considered for the HTS insert, i.e., the no-insulation (NI) and metallic insulation (MI) winding technics. Both methods allow turn-to-turn bypassing current but differ in their turn-to-turn resistance value by three orders of magnitude. In this paper, we provide a comparative study between the two winding options using numerical simulations applied to a preliminary design of the insert, which features a cold bore diameter of 50 mm and is made of 15 double-pancake coils wound from a 6-mm REBCO tape.
