This paper presents the QUELL experimental results concerning critical current, current sharing temperature, quench propagation and thermal-hydraulic quenchback. A short description of the experiment is followed by a detailed analysis of the quench propagation experiments. An important correlation for the temperature margin, operating current and time dependence of the normal zone length has been found.
