Poster Presentation of 1h45m G2 - Quench and Normal-Zone Bahavior Mon-Af-Po1.10


Dr Andrey Gavrilin (NHMFL - FSU)


The 32T all-superconducting user magnet comprised of a REBCO tape pancake-wound dual-coil insert and an LTS multi-coil outsert has been tested at the NHMFL. The magnet protected-quench behavior was simulated using a custom-written Fortran computer code. The simulation results and their sensitivity to the input data are discussed. The effect of insert quench protection system parameters on the protection efficiency was also analyzed. The simulation results are compared with the measurements in the insert coils during deliberate quenches.
