CORC® CABLES AND WIRES FOR FUSION MAGNETS
CORC® cables and wires allow for easy bundling into high-current Cable in Conduit Conductors (CICC) for fusion magnets:
– Highest level of conductor transposition of any HTS CICC
– Flexible CORC®-CICC allow for bending down to 1 meter diameter and enable compact fusion magnets
CORC®-CICC for fusion and detector magnets are being developed with support of the U.S. Department of Energy and in collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, CERN, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, the University of Twente and Paul Sherrer Institute.
|CORC® cable CICC||CORC® wire CICC|
|Diameter (no jacket)||25 mm||25 mm|
|Temperature, Field||4.2 K, 20 T||4.2 K, 20 T|
|Current||up to 100,000 A||up to 100,000 A|
CORC® cables and wire terminations allow for low resistance CORC®-CICC joints that would enable demountable fusion magnets.
