Test results and analyses of conductor short samples for HT-7U
The experiments of Cable-in conduit conductor (CICC) short samples with high proportion of segregated copper strands have been carried out in SULTAN facility last September. These experiments aimed to investigate transient stability and AC losses of CICC conductor coated with different resistive barriers (Pb-30Sn-2Sb or Ni plating on strands) and to check the design of PF and TF CICC for HT-7U magnets. The resistive barriers' influences on the stability and AC losses of CICC are evaluated. These experimental results are used for the choice of HT-7U TF and PF CICC design.
