Abstract

For AC applications of high-temperature superconductors, such as REBa2Cu3O y (REBCO, RE = rare earth) superconducting tapes, an AC loss is a great part of total heat load of cooling systems. In the case of conduction cooling, it may cause a serious temperature rise of the superconducting systems. Therefore, it is very important to reduce the AC loss in superconducting windings and grasp its properties under various conditions. For AC loss reduction, REBCO tapes should be scribed into a multifilamentary structure by the laser-scribing technique. In this study, AC loss properties in the non-scribed and scribed tapes were investigated, especially for B m < B p, where B p is the breaking point of the AC loss curve and corresponds to the penetration field where the magnetic flux penetrates to the center of the tape or filaments. Further, the dependences of B p on the number of stacking tapes and filaments were investigated from the viewpoint of demagnetization effect. It was cleared that the AC loss for B m < B p decrease and B p increase with increasing number of stacked tapes.
