Abstract

This paper reports the status of the design of a 200kA conductor for a Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) system. The reasons for adopting the Cable-In-Conduit-Conductor concept were reported previously. A brief review of these reasons together with the conductor design requirements will precede a description of the method used to establish the detailed design of the conductor. This method utilized manufacturing development test and evaluation techniques to provide discriminators between several CICC configurations. The rationale for selecting the detailed design configuration is given together with a brief overview of conductor testing.
