Abstract

The authors develop a numerical method for calculating the transverse resistivity of superconducting cables. A superconducting cable consists of a twisted bundle of strands with a nonconducting inner region. If such a cable is placed in an external magnetic field, the induced currents will not merely flow in the axial direction, but also around the center, in the plane of the cross section. It is shown that the transverse transport current, which is induced by external fields acting on the cable, can saturate most of the filaments of the superconducting layer. This results in a smaller maximal value of a longitudinal transport current and small coupling losses
