A numerical model to introduce students to AC loss calculation in superconductors

Francesco Grilli, Enrico Rizzo
A numerical model implemented in the open-source finite-element method FreeFEM program is presented, with the aim of introducing students to the calculation of AC losses in superconductors. With this simple approach, students can learn about the critical state model used to describe the macroscopic electromagnetic behavior of superconductors and the importance of different factors influencing the AC losses of superconductors.
