    Abstract

    This paper discusses the experimental results concerning maximum current and stability of two braided superconducting cables. The expected critical current of both conductors is 95 kA under self field conditions, at 4. 2 K. An essential difference is that one of these conductors has a pure CuNi matrix, the other a Cu matrix. The maximum current of the cables was measured as a function of the temperature and the ramp rate of the current. We observed a remarkable decrease of the current-carrying capacity with increasing current rate in both cables, independent of the matrix material. Furthermore, the stability of the cables was investigated.
