Abstract:

Major problems associated with the design of a repetitively pulsed 100 kJ energy storage system are explored and solutions presented. Recommendations as to the design of future systems are made. Based on the results of a theoretical analysis into loss mechanisms in coppersuperconductor composites, a braid composed of 4.5 x 10 to minus 3rd power inch diameter strands was selected for further investigation. Coils having stored energies of about 1 and 10 kJ were constructed from this braid and loss measurements made while the coils were being repetitively pulsed at rates of 1 and 5 pulses per second.
