Based on characteristics of alternating current (AC) critical current of high temperature superconducting (HTS) tapes on the frequency, this paper focuses on AC voltage-current (U-I) behaviors of two kinds of high temperature superconducting tapes, by which BSCCO and YBCO carrying different frequency AC currents are tested in liquid nitrogen temperature of 77 K. It is shown that the AC U-I characteristic curves of different tapes consist of two parts, that is, the resistive part and the hysteresis part. Additionally, the n values of the two parts and the relationship between AC critical current and frequency are obtained through experiments. The experimental results agree with calculated ones well, which is useful for the application of HTS tapes to power technology. © 2012 Higher Education Press and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
