Superconductor testing for W7-X in the STAR arrangement at KfK
The superconducting test arrangement STAR at KfK is employed for electrical and hydraulic testing of a superconductor length of about 200 m. This conductor, as provided for the W7-X coil system, is wound to a circular test coil. During the conductor tests the coil system must not be subjected to a dangerous mechanical load. For this reason the test coil is reinforced by structure material which is composed mainly of steel side plates and distance bolts. Under these boundary conditions the magnetic fields and forces as well as the mechanical stresses are calculated for three different load cases.
