Abstract

A high-T c superconducting (HTS)-coated conductor with a magnetic substrate is promising as a low-cost conductor because Ni alloy can be well texturized by a simple process. However, it has been reported that the magnetism of the substrate makes an AC transport current loss and an AC magnetization loss increase from those losses of the HTS-coated conductor of a nonmagnetic substrate sharply. However, the assembled conductor which bundled many HTS-coated conductors with a magnetic substrate is hardly reported. In this paper, the AC loss and the current distribution in the superconducting layer of the HTS-coated conductor with a magnetic substrate are analyzed using the edge-based hexahedral finite element method (FEM) taking account of both the nonlinear E-J characteristics and the nonlinear magnetic property of the substrate at 77 K. Moreover, AC loss characteristics of HTS-coated conductors with a magnetic substrate arranged with an infinite number of the coated conductors are examined and the effect of the gap length between adjacent conductors on the AC loss is also investigated.
