Abstract

In the framework of the development of High Temperature Superconducting current leads (HTSCL), one demonstrator was tested at FZK in 2004 together with a conventional current lead, both were connected by a superconducting short circuit NbTi conductor, referred as busbarIII (BBIII). Here the BBIII was used for current distribution measurements. In addition to a 64 Hall Probe (HP) system, two additional 4-HP heads from CEA were assembled at both ends of the BBIII. This system, already successfully used during the TFMC test phase II, was now adapted by FZK to the present BBIII set-up. Electrical tests were performed for conducter currents up to 80 kA without background magnetic field. In this paper, the analysis of the current distribution is presented.
