Abstract

In this paper, we present an electric quench detection method without a central voltage tap which may cause the short-circuit of the lead-wires from the voltage taps in the quench detection of a large AC superconducting coil. In this method, an inductive voltage detection coil is used instead of the central voltage tap. The inductive voltage detection coil is electrically insulated from a superconducting coil and therefore the lead-wires do not break down. Through the quench detection tests for a Bi-2223/Ag HTS coil, we show the feasibility of the proposed method for detecting the quench of the large AC superconducting coil.
