Abstract

Experiments on quench propagation in high-current, high field High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) Cable-In-Conduit Conductors (CICCs) for fusion applications are forthcoming. Among the conductor designs to be tested, there is the ENEA slotted core proposal. In order to support the design of the samples and plan the diagnostics to be employed, a 1D multi-region thermal-hydraulic and electric model of the samples has been developed using the H4C code. After an experimental electric characterization, the model is applied to the simulation of quench propagation in the samples. The simulations show how current redistributes among the tapes and the slots. Additionally, they show that the quench protection strategy is suitable to prevent too high hot-spot temperatures.
