We have made a software electromagnetic simulation of eddy current effects in Bi(2223)Ag sheathed tapes with applied AC transport current in a broad frequency range. We have used simple models of monocore and multicore tapes. Calculated is the power distribution (W/m3) within the metal sheath using the geometry of real tapes. The numerical simulation is carried out with Finite-element-method software. The paper also describes the influence of the tape cross-sectional architecture and the sheath resistivity on the eddy current loss.
