Abstract

To study the quench behavior of the Bi-2212 round wire as a promising superconductor for future fusion reactor coils and high-field magnets, a numerical adiabatic model has been developed at the Institute of Plasma Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The model is in 1-D and the partial differential equation is solved with the implicit method. Quench energy is simulated by introducing heat in a section of the wire, and the temperature and voltage are calculated as the function of time and space. The minimum quench energy and normal zone propagation velocity were calculated at different conditions. The results from the model were compared with analytical solution and experiment data. The analysis and discussion are presented in this paper.
