Stability criteria and critical energy in superconducting cable-in-conduit conductors
The well cooled criterion is now used extensively to characterise stability in the design of superconducting cable-in-conduit conductors. Using a simplified analytical model, a very simple formula has been derived which directly yields the critical energy of such a conductor, for the case of a constant heat transfer coefficient between the strands and helium. This formula, in agreement with numerical simulations, shows that the well cooled criterion is not a guarantee of a high stability margin in terms of energy.
