In the circumstances of the bulk transport of current lead in a magnet, HTS DC cables used as current leads for the magnets have great advantages. However, the AC loss is one of the important parameters of HTS DC cable and it has a strong effect on its stability and operation cost. For this research, a cold dielectric HTS DC cable, consisting of one conductor layer, one insulation layer and one shielding layer, was fabricated using YBCO coated conductor. We measured the AC ripple losses of the HTS cable, and concluded on the relation between AC losses and power frequency.
