Electromagnetic modeling of high temperature superconductor (HTS) materials and applications
F. Gömöry, Slovak Academy of Sciences, Slovak Republic
The modeling of electromagnetic phenomena is essential in the design of electric power devices. For the applications of high temperature superconductors (HTS) the critical state model used for low temperature superconductors (LTS) provides a valuable starting point. Consistent with the more complex behavior of HTS is the incorporation of such features as the magnetic anisotropy, non-uniformity, thermal activation and close contact with ferromagnetic material. Specific numerical techniques have been developed to cope with these tasks. This chapter provides an overview of these ...
