Abstract

The properties of Nb3Sn cable-in-conduit conductor were investigated experimentally with the void fraction and the cross-sectional shape as the parameters. As the result of a series of experiment, it was concluded that the critical void fraction value existed between 40% and 36% from both viewpoints of instability and critical current degradation. It was also found out that the circular cross-sectional conductors have better properties than the rectangular ones from the same viewpoints.
