2010 IEEE transactions on applied superconductivity  
Designs of the HTS transmission line power cable and the matching magnetic core for a fast-cycling accelerator dipole magnet are presented. The hysteretic and eddy currents induced power losses of the proposed HTS cable operating under various sweeping magnetic fields are projected and compared to those of the LTS cable in similar applications. The engineering design of the HTS power cable for the fast cycling dipole magnet is presented, and the test arrangement of a short-sample cable
