Design elaboration – obstacles and solutions

The project team met in Karlsruhe several times to elaborate the design of the current lead and the busbar. A feasible solutions seems to be near:

As a result we will make an installation of a subscale demonstrator at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Two designs for the conductor are shortlisted and will be tested against each other. The subscale modes will be 4m long and carry 20 kA.

One will be made with the CroCo Cable (more information here: http://www.itep.kit.edu/english/1364.php). The other test sample consists of stacked REBCO tapes. The test facility will be ready within a few months and we will update you .
