Eddy current modeling in multifilementary superconductive tapes submitted to external time varying magnetic field

Abstract : Evaluating AC loss in high-temperature superconductors (HTSs) is crucial for the design of superconductive devices such as cables, fault current limiters, transformers or motors. Given the complexity of the modelled structures, numerical methods are often necessary [1]. However, usual numerical schemes have convergence problems when the modelled system involves multiscale dimensions or highly anisotropic material properties, which is usually encountered in superconductive devices. In this case, specific numerical schemes are often necessary. In previous works, we have successfully developed an electromagnetic model, based on an integro-differential formulation, for eddy current computation in highly anisotropic material, applied to eddy current computation in layered carbon fiber reinforced composite polymers. In this work, the formulation is adapted to model eddy currents losses in a multifilamentary superconductive tape submitted to external time varying magnetic field. This is achieved by defining an effective electrical conductivity tensor for the superconductive tape [2-3]. [1] Francesco Grilli, Enric Pardo, Antti Stenvall, Doan N.
