    Abstract

    In order to test superconducting cables at high currents it is convenient to generate the required transport current inductively, i.e. by means of a superconducting transformer. The paper gives a survey of the devices in different laboratories that apply this technique to test cables above 20 kA. An existing test facility at the University of Twente, suitable for 50 to 200 kA, is treated in more detail. Specific aspects of such a facility are discussed, for example the design of the transformer, the methods to measure the current in the superconducting secondary circuit and the fabrication of joints with a sufficiently low electrical resistance.
