Performance of an ITER CS1 Model Coil Conductor Under Transverse Cyclic Loading up to 40,000 Cycles
IEEE transactions on applied superconductivity
The large currents in the Cable-In-Conduit Conductors (CICC) destined for the high field magnets in the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), cause huge transverse forces on the strands compressing the cable against one side of the conduit. This load causes transverse compressive strain in the strands at the crossovers contacts. Moreover, the strands are also subjected to bending and contact surfaces micro-sliding, which results into friction and anomalous contact resistancedoi:10.1109/tasc.2004.830666 fatcat:ugdo3hrstngrtjwtprsewfi6wy
