    The development of AC superconductors has led to multifilamentary wires having a highly resistive matrix material and a small twist pitch and filament diameter. A numerical one-dimensional model is presented which enables the authors to calculate the current distribution as well as the magnetization and transport current loss in a current-carrying AC superconductor subjected to a transverse alternating magnetic field. The impact on wire design is also discussed
