The feasibility of a conduction-cooled MgB2 -based superconducting fault-current limiter with fast recovery is investigated. A real-scale device for a distribution network is considered. The dc resistive configuration is chosen in order to avoid ac losses and to allow conduction cooling. A high-heat-capacity cable is specifically developed in order to cope with the requirement of fast recovery. A short-length sample of the cable is manufactured in order to assess its feasibility. The detailed design of a prototype is also carried out, and the performance is numerically investigated. © 2002-2011 IEEE.

The ITER experimental nuclear fusion reactor contains within 18 superconducting toroidal coils for the confinement of high temperature plasma. Each of them is composed by 7 double-layer windings inserted in AISI 316LN stainless steel plates with grooves on both sides, named radial plates. The manufacturing process of a toroidal coil includes the insertion of the superconductive winding inside the radial plate grooves, its electrical insulation, the closing with steel covers of the radial plate grooves, a first vacuum impregnation of the winding, the subsequent stacking and the simultaneous impregnation of the 7 windings. The purpose of this article is to illustrate the fully automated system designed for laser welding between the covers and the radial plates. The welds have very stringent requirements in terms of penetration control, due to the presence of the superconductor and insulation and, in terms of geometry, considering the coupling tolerances required on the windings that form the coil. The dimensions of the radial plate, with its D shape of 14 × 9m, require about 1500 m of laser welding for the covers assembly. The stages of R&D have developed a laser process with filler wire addiction, the automation of the scanning of the variable gaps between covers and radial plate, the generation and control of robot trajectories, the total automatization of the plant. For the plant control bi-dimensional laser triangulation sensors have been adopted, for the detection and measurement of very close gaps (< 0.1 mm ), real-time controller for analysis and signal processing, fiber laser sources with power up to 3 kW. The whole process is monitored by vision systems with coaxial welding heads that allow accurate visual analysis of the weld pool.

The Facility for Anti-proton and Ion Research (FAIR), under development at GSI, includes the synchrotron SIS300, so called because the magnetic rigidity is 300 Tm. In order to reach the required high intensities of proton and heavy ions beams, the bending dipole magnets have to be pulsed from the injection magnetic field of 1.5 T up to 4.5 T maximum field at the rate of 1 T/s. These 7.8 m long magnets have cos Θ shaped coils with a 100 mm bore and the particular characteristic to be geometrically curved, with a sagitta of 112.9 mm. These challenging requirements triggered R&D activities, aimed at the development of suitable construction technologies for fast ramped curved coils. The heart of the R&D program is the construction of a 3.9 m long model. The paper discusses the main problems faced during the design and the construction of the cold mass, mainly covering the aspects related to the manufacture. © 2010 IEEE.

Recent developments in the high luminosity e+e? colliders are based on a collision scheme with a large Piwinski angle, a vertical beta function ?y much smaller than the bunch length, and a crab waist transformation. This scheme is being adopted in the SuperB asymmetric collider, to be built in Italy, with a design peak luminosity of 1036 cm?2 sec?1. A crucial role is played by the quadrupole doublets QD0/QF1, which are placed close to the interaction point and generate gradients close to 100 T/m. The available space for the doublets is very small, causing themagnets to be operated with a high engineering current density (2000 A/mm2). Starting from the helical coil concept, an advanced design of the quadrupole has been developed. The paper discusses the basic design concepts and the development of a coil model aimed at assessing the design criteria and demonstrating the feasibility of the quadrupole. The successful test of the coil model opens the way to new compact superconducting high gradient quadrupole magnets for the interaction regions of high luminosity colliders. © 2002-2011 IEEE.

In the framework of the Broader Approach Agreement between Europe and Japan for the construction of the JT-60SA tokamak in Naka, Japan, ENEA is committed to supply nine toroidal field (TF) superconducting magnets. The supply is carried out via a contract awarded in 2011 to ASG Superconductors, in which all the qualification activities have been accomplished and the manufacturing has already considered every step of fabrication. Six of the foreseen winding packs (WP) have been already wound, vacuum pressure impregnated and tested; the subsequent phase of the fabrication, consisting in the into casing insertion of the WP, has started. The critical processes have been qualified through the use of dedicated mock-ups. To carry out the insertion operation a dedicated tooling has been designed and installed in ASG. It consists of a central core on which the WP is grasped and of two lateral carriages for the casing component approaching in horizontal position. The present paper describes the WP manufacturing process highlighting some issues as the dimensional tolerances and the electrical insulation under vacuum. The final phase of fabrication, consisting in the into casing insertion of the WP, will be reported describing all the steps to arrive at the completion of the first TF coil. © 2015 IEEE.

In the framework of the Broader Approach Agreement for the construction of the JT-60SA tokamak, ENEA provides 9 of the 18 toroidal field (TF) coils of the JT-60SA magnet system. The 9 coils are being manufactured by ASG superconductors in Genoa under the supervision of ENEA in collaboration with the JT-60SA European home team. The manufacturing is composed of two main steps: one concerning winding pack assembly and impregnation, and the other devoted to the integration into the casing structure and associated final coil preparation. This paper describes the results of the validation activities set-up for the integration phase. Specifically, welding of casing components has been retained particularly critical for at least three reasons: (i) during welding the WP may be damaged by the intense heating; (ii) distortion caused by heating may determine incorrect coil geometry and then field errors; and (iii) flaws may reduce structural strength and then the overall lifetime of the machine. Similarly, final embedding has been demonstrated on a 1. m long mock-up of the coil. Main results and lessons learned are here described. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

The 9 coils are being manufactured by ASG superconductors in Genoa under the supervision of ENEA in collaboration with the JT-60SA European home team. Prior the manufacturing, a preparatory activity has been carried out aimed at designing, constructing and setting-up the relevant components to be realized. In order to get confidence of some special manufacturing process, several qualification activities have been performed. In this paper an overview of the principal milestones reached during the preparatory phase and a description of the qualification activities with relevant test results are presented. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

As a part of the He inlet process's qualification and validation for the JT-60SA Toroidal Field Coil Magnets, TIG welding of the nozzle to the conductor jacket is a delicate process: in fact, NbTi/Cu wires may be exposed to high temperatures, thus resulting in a degradation of their critical currents. During the He inlet TIG welding process, temperatures have been accurately recorded by using several thermocouples placed in contact with the superconducting cable. After welding, several samples have been extracted from the thermally affected zone (TAZ), as well as far fromTAZ (virgin state samples). Moreover, other samples have been heat treated according to the acceptable welding limit conditions allowed in the technical specification (i.e., 500 °C for 30 s). Their critical current densities have been evaluated through detailed magnetic characterization measurements (isothermal hysteresis loops) as a function of an applied field (up to 7 T) and at two different temperatures (4.4 and 6.2 K). We found that none of the extracted wires are affected by welding. This findings implies that the margins defined in the technical specifications of the Nb-Ti/Cu conductors' welding process should be taken in due consideration to take all necessary precautions to stay well below that limit. However, it is worth noting that in the welding process only a limited number of wires in the cable may be affected thus assuring an adequate safety margin. © 2013 IEEE.

Feasibility of industrial production of MgB2 cables and magnets has been established, thus leading to MRI systems realization. Apart from continuing the development in performances of both cable and magnet, a further important step consists in applying superconductive junctions to windings, to obtain a better field stability. In 2006 a technique to obtain some tens of Ampere in persistent mode operation in a joined MgB2 cable was found. Since then, short windings were repetitively built to test the progress of the performances of the junctions. Among them, a single junction, five meter long windings with a diameter of 260 millimeter were put in persistent mode (i. e. with total resistance less than 10-14 Ohm) with 300 Ampere circulating at 20 Kelvin, self-field; also windings with two junctions and about one meter long with the same diameter were put in persistent mode with 200 Ampere circulating at 20 Kelvin, self-field. © 2006 IEEE.
