Abstract

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is developing high-current ReBCO-CORC strand-based cables for use in future large-scale detector magnets. A six-around-one, forced flow gas-cooled ReBCO-CORC cable-in-conduit conductor (CICC) is envisioned for application in magnets operating in the 20-40 K temperature range. A CICC, rated for 45 kA at 4.2 K and 10 T, is designed and in production. The CICC comprises a cable of six CORC strands helically wound around a tube. The cable has an expected current density of 105 A/mm2 at 10 T/4.2 K, which corresponds to an overall current density of 53 A/mm2. A cable current density of 110 A/mm2 can be reached when increasing the temperature to 20 K and operating in a magnetic field of 5 T.
