Abstract

At RCNP, we have been developing magnets utilizing first generation HTS wires for this decade. HTS materials have advantages over LTS materials. Magnets can be operated at 20 K or higher temperature and cooled by cryo-coolers. The cooling structure becomes simpler and the cooling power of a cooler is higher. Owing to a large margin in operating temperature, it is possible to excite HTS magnets by AC or pulsed currents without quenching. After successful tests of proto type models, two magnets have been fabricated for practical use. Their design and operational performance of two models and the switching dipole magnet are discussed.
